International Game Technology (IGT) is deepening its partnership with Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries (MBLL) with a five-year central systems contract extension.
A news release states that the collaboration over the next five years will see IGT deliver an enhanced version of its INTELLIGEN video lottery central system to MBLL video lottery terminals.
INTELLIGEN currently connects nearly 6,600 video lottery terminals (VLTs) throughout Manitoba.
“With IGT’s enhanced INTELLIGEN system, MBLL can easily access insight into the status and performance of its VLT network,” said Nick Khin, IGT Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Gaming. “Developed to respond to the unique needs of our customers, INTELLIGEN supports the volume, complexity and security MBLL needs to operate its thousands of VLTs located throughout the region with confidence and efficiency.”
Under the terms of the extension, IGT will upgrade MBLL’s video lottery central system to the latest version of INTELLIGEN, which includes improved network diagnostics. MBLL will also receive several iLINK Ultras, IGT’s latest retailer site controller that has a separate point-of-sale device and logic box for increased flexibility, and an updated user interface with improved features for the retailer.
As the leader in the regulated video lottery industry, IGT deploys its INTELLIGEN systems worldwide, connecting a wide range of VLTs in a variety of gaming environments. The software is built on IGT’s more than 25 years of central systems experience and offers stable, secure command and control capabilities.
In addition to VLTs and the INTELLIGEN central system, IGT also provides MBLL with commercial casino cabinets, games, and the IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system, as well as IGT PlayCasino games.
