The Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) has awarded a major new agreement with IGT for the supply of 700 CrystalDual 27 Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) in Saskatchewan. The units will be installed by March 2019. IGT participated in a competitive request for quotation (RFQ) process to win this business.
Described by IGT as a ‘standout in the Canadian market’, the CrystalDual 27 VLT features two high-definition displays that deliver pristine graphics. The modern hardware solution also features a first-class audio package, ergonomic design and a mobile device charging port to deliver an exceptional player experience.
Eric Karmark, WCLC vice president, VLT gaming & operations, commented on the deal: “The Western Canada Lottery Corporation is excited to partner with IGT to update the Saskatchewan VLT network with IGT’s best-in-class video lottery terminals and game content. IGT has been a trusted WCLC partner for more than two decades, and we’re pleased that our relationship will continue through this machine replacement cycle.”
Nick Khin, IGT chief commercial officer, gaming, stated: “IGT is pleased to extend our long-standing relationship with WCLC with the delivery of 700 CrystalDual 27 Video Lottery Terminals. The versatility of the CrystalDual 27 VLT will enable WCLC to modernise its gaming venues and entertain players with exceptional, regionally attuned content. IGT has applied its decades of experience as a supplier in Canada to create modern, world-class solutions that WCLC can leverage in the Saskatchewan VLT network.”
Under the agreement, WCLC will receive 700 of IGT’s VLTs – each one with an eight-game content bundle created specifically for WCLC and its players. IGT’s INTELLIGEN Central System will continue to connect the WCLC’s VLTs and to provide the lottery with detailed machine accounting, event tracking, system security and more.
