Intralot extends Washington DC lottery contract
Greek-owned gaming and lottery operator Intralot has agreed an extension to its contract with the District of Colombia Lottery and Charitable Games Control Board (DCLB) until March 2020.
The deal means Intralot has now received all five of the available one-year extension of its original contract dated March 30, 2010.
The extended contract will commence on March 30, 2015 and run until March 29, 2020.
Under the extended deal, Intralot will continue to offer the DCLB its LOTOS O/S online gaming and instant ticket management computer system, including terminals, peripheral devices and a communications network that links retailer terminals across the district to the central system.
Additional services incorporated into the package include marketing support, hotline, field operations, maintenance and repair.
“Their [Intralot] creative expertise and technical capabilities have allowed us to continue a leadership role in the industry by expanding our product line with new, exciting, innovative games and distribution channels, including interactive instant games played on player-activated terminals,” the Lottery’s executive director Buddy Roogow said.
“With these new channels and games, we have increased our sales and player base without cannibalising sales of other products.”
Tom Little, president and chief executive officer of Intralot, added: “Together we will continue to introduce new sales channels and innovative products and services to the District of Columbia to benefit those who live and work in the city as well as those who visit.”
