Just a month after the company formally appointed Lorenzo Pellicioli as its new chairman, International Game Technology has announced that its subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation (IGT) will extend its contract with Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation through June 2025.
In addition, IGT will provide its newest lottery terminals to the market that will include the company’s Keno-to-Go products.
The lottery’s board of directors authorized the lottery to exercise three out of seven extension years of the original contract. According to the original contract, IGT provides Tennessee lottery with lottery central systems, data centre operations, network and field services, retail sales and support, call centre and marketing services.
Pursuant to the extension, IGT will provide GameTouch 20 terminals and additional Keno-To-Go products.
The terminals will be used throughout Tennessee and they are the latest IGT’s self-service lottery vending machines, built specifically to meet big box retailer requirements. Complementing the star of the show, additional self-service lottery machines will be added with Keno monitors and video controller units.
“By installing the GameTouch 20 terminals into some of our biggest retailers in the state, IGT is helping us expand our sales footprint and attract new players with its latest innovations,” said Rebecca Hargrove, Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation President and CEO. “We are excited to implement IGT’s latest self-service vending machines and for the benefits it brings to our retailers and players. We look forward to continuing our valued partnership for years to come.”
“We are committed to the Tennessee Lottery’s long-term growth strategy, and as part of this contract extension, we will provide further convenience for retailers and players through the new GameTouch 20 vending machines and expanded Keno products,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Lottery.
IGT has provided equipment to the Tennessee lottery ever since 2004 through its previous corporate name Gtech Holdings. The company helped the lottery return more than $4.7 billion to educational programs all over the state.
