IGT Launches Lottery Solution

Gaming and lottery supplier International Game Technology unveiled Aurora, its new high-performance, high-reliability lottery solution, at last month’s trade show of the National Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) in Dallas, Texas.

“It’s the dawn of a new era,” said Marco Tasso, senior VP of global product marketing, lottery, for IGT.

Aurora builds on the success of IGT’s Enterprise Series system—the most prevalent central system and back-office application solution for lotteries in the world, the company says—to respond to rapidly changing market conditions and lotteries’ needs for more agility, greater interoperability and a truly omnichannel experience. The Aurora suite of open solutions was designed to define the environment for current and future lottery growth in terms of a technological platform.

From the ground up, Aurora’s architecture is loosely coupled, providing an entirely new level of system integration and flexibility to seamlessly integrate to third-party applications or games. This service-oriented architecture will separate Aurora’s game engines from the business logic, so making changes to a game will not affect the business end, allowing lotteries to get solutions into production faster.

Aurora also offers lotteries more agility when executing on key business decisions, and sound, actionable analytics to help them make those decisions. Aurora’s advanced business intelligence portfolio allows data to be integrated, mined and visualized, ultimately helping to drive results for the lottery.
