Reno hotel wins judgment from IGT subsidiary - Tuesday 12th of April 2005

A Washoe County District Court jury has awarded 1.7 million dollars to the operators of the Siena Hotel Spa Casino in Reno over a complaint involving software produced by a subsidiary of International Game Technology.

Wild Game NG, the holding company for Siena, alleged in a suit filed in November 2001 that Acres Gaming Corp. installed defective casino management software at the hotel in July 2001. The Siena acquired the software in February that year.

Hotel officials said the defect resulted in the property's issuing improper levels of complimentary incentives to casino customers and that the Siena was not able to institute several marketing programs that Acres had promised.

A related allegation dealing with IGT's involvement in making misleading statements about the Acres product is pending.

Representatives of IGT could not be reached for comment today.
