IGT pens extension with New York Lottery


International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a two-year extension to its technology and services contract with the New York Lottery.

The renewed deal, agreed by the IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiary, will run through to August 2022.

IGT will deliver 400 of its new GameTouch self-service vending machines to the Lottery, as well as continue to provide the Lottery with an advanced central system, terminals and ongoing services.

These additional services will include the installation and maintenance of lottery terminals, retailer training, field services, call centre support, and instant ticket warehousing and distribution.

“As the leader in the global gaming industry, IGT delivers excellence by focusing our innovations in content, hardware and platform technology that enable customers such as the New York Lottery to continue its ranking as one of the largest and most successful lotteries in the world,” IGT chief operating officer Jay Gendron said.

“IGT is pleased to extend our long-term partnership with the Lottery and we will do our part to ensure that it continues to set record-breaking sales and maximise its more than $68bn contribution to education in New York.”

The extension comes after IGT earlier this month reported a net loss of $279.6m for the second quarter, as revenue fell 48.4% year-on-year following the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
