ANAHEIM, CA – IGT hosted the annual Spirit of Sovereignty Slot Tournament in the company’s booth at the 2022 Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Convention. Participants played the Hexbreak3r tournament solution on the CrystalCurve™ cabinet, one of IGT’s products on display at the exhibition.

Former professional basketball player A.C. Green captured first place in the tournament, which had 14 participants and raised $24,000, including a $10,000 contribution from IGT. All proceeds will support tribal scholarships and programming for Native youth through the Spirit of Sovereignty Fund, which was established in 2002 as the charitable arm of the National Indian Gaming Association.
