IGT pens extension with Kansas Lottery

22 March 2019

International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a three-year extension to its deal with the Kansas Lottery, continuing the partnership until at least 2022.

Under the renewed agreement, IGT will continue to provide the Lottery with its INTELLIGEN central computer system and services to monitor electronic gaming machines throughout the state.

IGT, which brokered the deal via its IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiary, has said the extended agreement will come into effect from December 15, 2019.

“IGT’s INTELLIGEN system has helped the Kansas Lottery meet the objectives of operating our electronic gaming machines with the highest standards of integrity and security to benefit the state for the last 10 years,” Kansas Lottery acting executive director Stephen Durrell said.

“We look forward to continuing our relationship over the next few years.”

Jay Gendron, chief operating officer for North American lottery at IGT, added: “IGT and the Kansas Lottery have built a strong partnership since this contract began more than 10 years ago, and we're pleased to be furthering this relationship by continuing to provide our advanced system to the nearly 5,000 electronic gaming machines in the state.”

IGT also recently extended its deal with the DC Lottery in Washington DC. Also in North America, IGT earlier this month signed an extension to its partnership with Canadian provincial lottery organisation Loto-Québec.
