IGT Global Solutions Corporation has secured a five-year contract with the Oregon State Lottery to upgrade its central gaming system. Under the terms of the agreement, the firm will provide, through a product sale, enhanced retailer equipment including self-service vending machines. The contract allows for two five-year extension options.
IGT will convert the lottery’s current central system to Aurora, its software platform. Included in the upgrade will be Order Wizard and Performance Wizard which offer business intelligence and analytics tools to maximize sales growth. The firm’s Instants Processing System will also be implemented to support all aspects of the lottery’s instant ticket program including game inventory, distribution, and validation.
In addition, the lottery will purchase a wide variety of retailer technology, including the company’s newest self-service vending machine, GameTouch 20.
“IGT is a longtime partner of the Oregon Lottery,” said Oregon Lottery Director Barry Pack. “We look forward to IGT delivering its latest technology to modernize our central system – allowing us to attract new players and implement new strategies for revenue growth.”
Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Lottery, remarked: “The Oregon Lottery will benefit from the security and reliability of IGT’s enhanced central system, Aurora, that will help evolve, grow, and manage the lottery business to ensure maximum profits are returned to good causes in the state.”
The Oregon Lottery has been a customer of IGT’s since the lottery’s inception in 1985. In addition to the Aurora central system and products outlined above, IGT provides the lottery with instant ticket games and services, video lottery terminals, and its video gaming system.
