International Game Technology says a strong performance in its earnings for the second quarter has the Nevada-based slot-machine maker confident it will post its fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth.

IGT CEO Patti Hart said Thursday that a significant boost in North American slot sales helped drive double-digit increases in revenue, operating income and earnings per share for the quarter that ended March 31.

The company saw its adjusted operating income climb 20 percent to $95.1 million - or 36 cents a share - on revenue of $600 million.

North American product sales increased 25 percent over last year. The company sold 8,400 replacement machines there, a 68 percent increase over last year.
