International Game Technology subsidiary IGT Global Solutions has signed a six-year contract extension with the Texas Lottery Commission to continue printing instant tickets. The extension will run until August 31, 2024.
The two parties have worked together to develop key product strategies which have enhanced the lottery’s portfolio of games and delivered increased sales. Texas was the first jurisdiction in the US to launch IGT’s Super Ticket, offering players the chance to play multiple games on a single, oversized instant ticket. In collaboration with the Texas Lottery, the company also developed the successful Loteria line at the $3, $5, and $10 price points, with a $20 “Million Dollar Loteria” ticket scheduled to launch in November.
“IGT and the Texas Lottery Commission have established a valuable partnership since the Lottery’s inception in 1992, and IGT looks forward to furthering our longstanding relationship through this contract extension,” said Jay Gendron, the firm’s COO lottery. “Together with the lottery, we will continue to deliver innovative games to Texas Lottery players to help increase sales, attract new players, and maximize contributions for education and veterans.”
In addition to instant tickets, IGT provides the Texas Lottery with lottery central systems, data center operations, field sales organization, retail sales and support, warehouse and distribution, call center, and marketing services.
