Oregon Taps Aristocrat, IGT for VLTs

Suppliers Aristocrat Leisure Ltd. and IGT have both scored big orders for video lottery terminals by the Oregon Lottery. According to a report from Todd Eilers of Eilers & Krejcik, the lottery will purchase a total of 2,720 VLTs—1,550 in IGT’s CrystalDual cabinets and 1,170 in Aristocrat’s Helix+—after field trials showed the machines from the two suppliers outperformed existing machines in the market.

According to the report, the lottery will spend $25 million on VLT purchases this year, with Eilers assuming average selling prices of $15,300 to $23,000 per machine.

The purchases should run through June 2021.
