Lottery and gaming software developer International Game Technology (IGT) has partnered with Loto-Québec to supply Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) across the province. IGT Canada Solutions ULC, a subsidiary of IGT, will supply PeakDual™ 27 VLT machines, as part of an ongoing VLT replacement cycle in Québec.
The new VLTs will feature dual 27-inch high-definition monitors with improved lighting, sound, and graphics. The terminals feature popular games, like 7’s Wild, The Wild Life™ 5 Line and Big City 5’s™. The machines will also provide new games like 7’s Wild Gold, Cash Eruption™ – Temple of Fire™, and Samurai 888™ Katsumi.
“For decades, Loto-Québec has looked to IGT to supply quality hardware and game content to our gaming establishments network. We are pleased to announce this new agreement,” said Stéphane Fraser, Loto-Québec Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Gaming Establishments, in a press release.
“Winning the opportunity to deploy VLTs in Loto-Québec’s current replacement cycle speaks to the trust that the corporation puts in IGT and to the superior quality of our products and services,” said David Flinn, IGT SVP Sales, Canada, South and Central America.
Loto-Québec’s partnership with IGT is part of a strategy to modernize and diversify its offerings. This week, Loto-Québec also partnered with Aristocrat Gaming to provide titles like Bao Zhu Zhao Fu™ and Fire Light™ to the corporation’s VLTs. The content is set to launch in early Summer 2024.
