IGT Global Solutions, a subsidiary of IGT, has extended its two contracts with the Kentucky Lottery Corporation until 2036.
The company will upgrade the Kentucky’s Lottery’s central system to IGT’s Aurora platform and deliver new point-of-sale hardware for 3,400 lottery retailers across the state, as well as deploy an upgraded ilottery system that includes cloud integration.
“The Kentucky Lottery has partnered with IGT since operations first began and we have continued to look for ways, in partnership with IGT, to modernise our offerings over the last 30-plus years,” said Mary R Harville, Kentucky Lottery Corporation president and CEO.
“Enhancing our lottery solutions with IGT’s retail and ilottery systems and convenient self-service retail terminals will provide more opportunities for us to responsibly grow our sales and return additional funds for scholarships and grants for Kentucky college students.”
Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer, Global Lottery said: “The Kentucky Lottery has always been at the forefront of lottery innovation and IGT is pleased to continue supporting these modernisation efforts.”
“IGT’s future-forward mindset and next-generation product portfolio are critical in today’s evolving lottery space. Over the next 10 years, we will build upon our longstanding partnership with the Kentucky Lottery and deploy our sophisticated technology to further enhance the player experience.”
