IGT Wins Uruguay, Saskatchewan Contracts

Slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced the installation of its sbX Casino Management System at the SALTO Hotel & Casino in Uruguay, and announced a new contract with the Western Canada Lottery Corporation to supply 1,375 video lottery terminals for the province of Saskatchewan.

IGT Floor Manager allows SALTO to introduce changes to its floor mix, based on market demand and demographic conditions. The property also will have access to IGT Analytics and the company’s extensive game library of IGT slot titles, as well as the tools required to optimize game performance.

“We are very excited to adopt IGT’s server-based applications, as they will allow us to distinguish our property from other casino locations while improving our floor performance and management,” said Juan Cosidó, head of marketing at casino parent company Naranpark S.A. “We now are also able to offer IGT’s outstanding themes, which give our current patrons the perfect blend of technology and fun.”

The installation was one of the sales that helped IGT reach a milestone of over 100 installs of the sbX system. The sbX solution was also the first system to offer a G2S server-based game management solution in an all-inclusive package. Since its introduction, sbX has grown to deliver more features, including IGT Analytics and Media Manager, as well as a game theme library with over 400 titles.

The Saskatchewan contract will place IGT games throughout the province over the next three months.

“IGT is excited to deliver industry-leading games to the Saskatchewan market,” said Eric Tom, IGT executive vice president of global sales. “This agreement will allow us to enhance and develop Saskatchewan’s overall video gaming program, as we have done with video lottery programs across Canada.”

The new IGT terminals will feature player-favorite titles including 7’s Wild, Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania, Cleopatra and Wolf Run.
