International Game Technology (IGT) announced Thursday that its subsidiary IGT Canada Solutions has signed a five-year contract extension with Loto-Québec to deliver an enhanced version of its INTELLIGEN video lottery central system software and related components. The extension will run through September 2027.
Under the terms of the extension, IGT will upgrade Loto-Québec's video lottery central system to the latest version of INTELLIGEN, which includes improved network diagnostics and data analytics. IGT will also be providing operational support for the INTELLIGEN system from their European Operational Center.
In addition to the INTELLIGEN central system, IGT also provides Loto-Québec with VLTs and games, commercial casino cabinets and games, as well as IGT PlayDigital games. Loto-Québec has been an IGT customer since 1978.
In a press release, Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming, said: "IGT's INTELLIGEN system will offer Loto-Québec progressive tools and functionality that will help position them for future success. Loto-Québec will receive the most advanced updates INTELLIGEN has to offer, allowing them access to quick insight into the status of their entire VLT network."
IGT at G2E's latest edition
IGT's INTELLIGEN systems are deployed worldwide, connecting a wide range of VLTs in a variety of gaming environments. The software is built on more than 25 years of central systems experience and offers "stable, secure command and control capabilities," according to a statement.
The systems support the Gaming Standards Association's Game to System (G2S) standard protocol, which enables an enhanced player user interface, improved responsible gaming features, multi-level mystery jackpots (Vault Breaker), cashless and additional player-centric functionality.
Last month, IGT also announced a contract extension with the Georgia Lottery. The partnership will see the company deploy its lottery and iLottery products and technology, with the aim of "enhancing the modernization of the Georgia Lottery's offerings." The extension will run through September 2032.
