Subject to the Maximum Acceptance Amount and modified proration, the principal amount of Notes that is purchased pursuant to the Tender Offer will be determined in accordance with the applicable Acceptance Priority Level (in numerical priority order) specified in this column; provided that IGT will not accept for purchase Dollar Notes in an aggregate principal amount that is greater than the Dollar Offer Sub Cap.

(2)

The applicable Total Consideration equals the sum of the applicable Tender Offer Consideration and the applicable Early Tender Premium.

(3)

For each US$1,000.00 principal amount of the Dollar Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for purchase.

(4)

Does not include accrued interest, which will also be paid in addition to the Dollar Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Dollar Consideration (as applicable).

(5)

For each US$1,000.00 principal amount of the Dollar Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time and accepted for purchase.

(6)

For each €1,000.00 principal amount of the Euro Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted for purchase.

(7)

(8)

For each €1,000.00 principal amount of the Euro Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time and accepted for purchase.

In addition to the Dollar Tender Offer Consideration, the Total Dollar Consideration, the Euro Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Euro Consideration (as applicable), all Holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes, rounded to the nearest US$0.01 per US$1,000.00 principal amount of the Dollar Notes and €0.01 per €1,000.00 principal amount of the Euro Notes from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date (as defined below) or the Final Settlement Date (as defined below) (as applicable).

Notes of one or both series may be subject to modified proration if the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn (with the aggregate principal amount of the Euro Notes converted to US dollars using the Exchange Rate) as of the Early Tender Time or the Expiration Time (as applicable) would cause the Maximum Acceptance Amount to be exceeded or the aggregate principal amount of the Dollar Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn as of the Early Tender Time or the Expiration Time (as applicable) would cause the Dollar Offer Sub Cap to be exceeded. Furthermore, regardless of the Acceptance Priority Level, Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be accepted for purchase in priority to Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time, and to the extent Notes are tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer, the portion of the Maximum Acceptance Amount (which shall be applied subject to the Acceptance Priority Levels) and the Dollar Offer Sub Cap available for the purchase of Notes tendered after the Early Tender Time will be reduced or may be eliminated completely.

The Tender Offer is conditioned upon, among other things, IGT, in its sole and absolute discretion, being satisfied that it has received, or will receive, by the Early Settlement Date an amount of net proceeds of the sale of the shares of LIS Holdings S.p.A. by an indirect subsidiary of IGT to PostePay S.p.A. which would be sufficient to finance the payment by IGT of the sum of (1) the sum of the Total Dollar Consideration and the Dollar Tender Offer Consideration with respect to all Dollar Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and (2) the sum of the Total Euro Consideration and the Euro Tender Offer Consideration with respect to all Euro Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer to Purchase.

It is expected that payment for Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Time will be made promptly following the Early Tender Time, on September 20, 2022 (the “Early Settlement Date“), and payment for Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Time but at or prior to the Expiration Time will be made on October 4, 2022 (the “Final Settlement Date“).

Subject to applicable law and the terms and conditions of the Offer to Purchase, IGT may change the Acceptance Priority Levels and increase or decrease either or both of the Maximum Acceptance Amount and the Dollar Offer Sub Cap without extending the Early Tender Time or the Expiration Time or otherwise providing withdrawal rights. IGT may also terminate the Tender Offer, waive any or all of the conditions of the Tender Offer prior to the Expiration Time, extend the Expiration Time or amend the terms of the Tender Offer.

IGT has retained D.F. King & Co. to act as Tender and Information Agent for the Tender Offer. Questions regarding procedures for tendering Notes may be directed to D.F. King & Co.
