GLENDALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- FutureLogic, Inc., the leading manufacturer of thermal ticket printers for cashless gaming, announced today that IGT, a subsidiary of International Game Technology (NYSE:IGT), has designated FutureLogic's GEN2(TM) Universal gaming printer as the default printer for its existing and new gaming platforms.
