IGT Signs Extension with Virginia Lottery

International Game Technology announced that its IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiary has signed a three-year contract extension with the Virginia Lottery. The extension, when added to the full duration of the contract, will run through October 2033, and in addition makes available three one-year extension options.

As part of the contract extension, IGT will provide the Virginia Lottery with an upgraded lottery central system and communications network, new point-of-sale hardware, and new game-play features with a target live date of October 2025.

Under the terms of the contract extension, IGT will upgrade the Virginia Lottery’s central retail system to its newest version of Aurora, part of IGT’s OMNIA lottery solution. IGT also will replace 5,500 retailer terminals with its high-performance, high-volume terminal the Retailer Pro S2, enabling the lottery to easily add new features across multiple point-of-sale terminals simultaneously.

IGT has been the primary lottery technology partner of the Virginia Lottery since 2000 and its primary instant ticket provider since 2020.
