Application has been made for the Notes to be listed on the Official List of Euronext Dublin and admitted to trading on the Global Exchange Market of Euronext Dublin.

Settlement of the Notes is subject to customary market and closing conditions and is expected on September 26, 2018.

As previously disclosed, IGT intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of the Notes, together with proceeds of a utilization under its senior syndicated revolving credit facilities, to redeem (the "Redemption") its $600,000,000 5.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 (Regulation S ISIN: USG4863AAA63 / Rule 144A ISIN: US460599AA19 / Regulation S CUSIP No.: G4863A AA6 / Rule 144A CUSIP No.: 460599 AA1) (the "5.625% Notes due 2020") on September 27, 2018 at a redemption price equal to $1,028.43 per $1,000.00 of principal amount of the 5.625% Notes due 2020. The Redemption is conditioned on IGT's receipt of at least $500,000,000 in gross proceeds from the Offering. A conditional notice of the Redemption was sent to all registered holders of the 5.625% Notes due 2020 on September 17, 2018.

IGT plans to use the excess net proceeds to enable International Game Technology (a direct-wholly owned subsidiary of IGT) (the "Subsidiary"):

(1) to redeem in full the Subsidiary's $144,303,000 7.50% Notes due 2019 (CUSIP No.: 459902 AR3 / ISIN US459902AR30) (the "7.50% Notes due 2019") on October 21, 2018 (the "Subsidiary Redemption Date") at a redemption price equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest (exclusive of interest accrued and unpaid from June 16, 2018 to, but excluding, the Subsidiary Redemption Date) on the 7.50% Notes due 2019 discounted to the Subsidiary Redemption Date on a semiannual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months), at the Treasury Rate plus 50 basis points; and

(2) to redeem $96,832,000 of the Subsidiary's $124,143,000 5.50% Notes due 2020 (CUSIP No. :459902 AS1 / ISIN: US459902AS13) (the "5.50% Notes due 2020") on the Subsidiary Redemption Date at a redemption price equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest (exclusive of interest accrued and unpaid from June 16, 2018 to, but excluding, the Subsidiary Redemption Date) on the 5.50% Notes due 2022 discounted to the Subsidiary Redemption Date on a semiannual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months), at the Treasury Rate plus 35 basis points.

On the Subsidiary Redemption Date, each redemption price, together with the applicable accrued interest, will become due and payable. Unless the Subsidiary defaults in making payment of the applicable redemption price, interest, if any, on the 7.50% Notes due 2019 and the 5.50% Notes due 2020 will cease to accrue on and after the Subsidiary Redemption Date.

The Paying Agent for the 7.50% Notes due 2019 and the 5.50% Notes due 2020 is Wells Fargo Bank, National Association. The 7.50% Notes due 2019 and the 5.50% Notes due 2020 must be surrendered to the Paying Agent to collect the applicable redemption price and accrued interest.
