IGT Canada has extended its contract with the Atlantic Lottery Corporation for one year to continue providing its most advanced video lottery central system, INTELLIGEN.
An IGT news release says this extension continues IGT’s legacy of winning video lottery terminal (VLT) systems bids across Canada. All VLTs in the country are connected by IGT’s INTELLIGEN system.
The Atlantic Lottery operates more than 6,000 VLTs across four Atlantic Canada provinces.
“IGT’s INTELLIGEN system offers the Atlantic Lottery progressive tools and functionality that help position the Lottery for future success,” said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming. “With more than 25 years of gaming central system development expertise with customers worldwide, IGT is happy to continue providing our advanced INTELLIGEN system to enhance the Lottery’s VLT system performance.”
IGT’s INTELLIGEN systems are deployed worldwide connecting a total of nearly 150,000 VLTs in a variety of gaming environments. The software is built on more than 25 years of central system experience and supports the Gaming Standards Association’s Game to System® (G2S) standard protocol, which enables an enhanced player user interface, improved responsible gaming features, exciting multi-level mystery jackpots, and additional player-centric functionality.
The Atlantic Lottery has been an IGT customer since 1982. In addition to the video lottery central system, IGT also provides the Lottery with VLT cabinets, compelling video lottery content, lottery point-of-sale terminals, digital lottery, casino and bingo games, IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system, and a variety of slot machines.
Meanwhile, IGT also announced this week that it is splitting its business to create a Digital & Betting segment that will include its iGaming and sports betting activities.
