IGT Signs New System Contracts with Massachusetts Lottery

International Game Technology Plc. announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a contract with the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission to provide a new central gaming system, terminal software applications, and an integrated website to display general lottery information, as well as for marketing and player convenience purposes, following a competitive procurement.

IGT provided the lottery’s existing central gaming system and lottery terminals in 1996. Over the years, IGT has installed self-service vending machines and currently prints a portion of the lottery’s instant tickets.

Under the terms of the product sale with the Massachusetts Lottery, IGT will provide project management and system integration responsibilities for all aspects of the lottery’s gaming system conversion. The supplier will convert the lottery’s existing central gaming and back-office systems to IGT’s latest systems solutions, including a comprehensive business intelligence and analytics tool that provides insights across all sales channels.

In a separate release, IGT announced an agreement with Station Casinos LLC to provide the Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas with its IGT Advantage casino management system, including the IGT Universal Game Adaptor and Service Window solutions.

By installing the IGT casino management system, Palms will be able to offer premium guest experiences through customized promotions and incentives through Service Window marketing, bonusing and guest communications solutions and applications across the property’s slot floor.
