ABOUT IT ABOUT INCREDIBLE TECHNOLOGIES


Since our humble beginning in 1985 and throughout the following decades of challenge, growth and success, one vision has continued to inspire us – it’s all about the game. Whether we were writing lines of code for pinball games, animating bulky pixels in the 80’s, making our mark on popular culture with hits like Golden Tee® Golf, or taking a leap of faith by entering the casino gaming market - IT was always all about the game.

Our players may have changed over the years, but our vision has not and our continued commitment to innovation is a testament to that fact. Every single game, cabinet and piece of hardware is an extension of the dedicated people who create and stand behind them. This is our incredible vision.

Incredible Technologies is a privately held, certified Women's Business Enterprise with membership in the National Indian Gaming Association, Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers, Amusement Machine Operators Association and American Amusement Machine Association.
