IGT agrees Massachusetts monitoring deal

3 June 2015

International Game Technology (IGT) has announced that its GTECH Corporation subsidiary has agreed a deal to provide the Massachusetts Gaming Commission with a central monitoring system that will be used to analyse electronic gaming devices in the US state.

Under the deal, the system will be used to monitor as many as 20,000 devices at up to four venues in Massachusetts.

The Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville will be the first venue to be monitored using IGT's INTELLIGEN.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission can monitor devices using either SAS or G2S, while IGT said the system will also provide the regulator with advanced security and financial monitoring functionality.

The Massachusetts launch represents the sixth implementation of INTELLIGEN by IGT in the US market.

Michael Chambrello, IGT’s cheif executive officer of North America Lottery, said: "We have leveraged more than 20 years of development expertise along with intelligence gathering and validation sessions with gaming central system clients throughout the world to produce a system that meets both their current and future needs: the INTELLIGEN system.

"We look forward to working closely with the Commission to deliver this flexible, secure, and robust system that will allow them to effectively manage their new business and help to generate additional revenue for the Commonwealth."
