IGT pens extension with Minnesota Lottery


International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a two-year extension to its instant ticket games contract with the Minnesota Lottery in the US.

Under the renewed deal, which will run through to the end of June 2022, IGT will continue to supply a range of instant ticket services for the Minnesota Lottery.

This will include research and analytics, graphics support, and the production and printing of instant tickets.

IGT has worked with the Minnesota Lottery on its instant games offering since 2010, and has also served as its technology and draw-based lottery systems provider since 2002.

“Every time someone plays a Minnesota Lottery game, it generates funding to support Minnesota’s environment and state services so it is imperative that we deliver the fun games and play styles that our players are looking for,” Minnesota Lottery director of operations Wes Harms said.

“We are pleased that IGT will continue to help us provide the quality scratch games and licensed property games that our players want for the next two years.”

IGT chief operating officer for lottery, Jay Gendron, added: “We take pride in working hand-in-hand with the Lottery to design entertaining games based on extensive research, game planning, and strategic marketing.

“We look forward to delivering these player-centric services and innovative content over the next two years as we continue to help ensure the Minnesota Lottery’s success.”

The deal comes after IGT last month also extended its technology and services contract with the New York Lottery.
