Global gaming organisation International Game Technology has announced that its IGT Global Solutions subsidiary has entered into a new partnership with the Colorado Lottery.

The four-year contract extension, which is to run through to July 12, 2025, is to see the provision of an array of new lottery technology, including back office solutions and the roll-out of the GameTouch 20 terminal, IGT’s newest self-service lottery vending machine

Tom Seaver, Colorado Lottery senior director, said of the enhanced agreement: “We look forward to enhancing our current lottery solutions and technology, and bringing added convenience for our retail partners and players through this contract extension with IGT. 

“Throughout the last five years, IGT has delivered its expertise and reliable technology to benefit all of our lottery stakeholders, and we are happy to continue to partner with them for the next several years.”

Under the terms of the agreement, the Colorado Lottery will receive a full suite of new back office and enhanced business intelligence solutions, designed to aid in the continued growth of sales as well as delivering added convenience to players and retailers. 

Furthermore, IGT will deliver gametouch 20 terminals, the company’s most recent lottery innovation built specifically to meet big box retailer requirements, with the company also to continue to provide full system support for all Colorado Lottery draw games, claims and payments.

“This contract extension enables IGT to continue assisting the Colorado Lottery in achieving its sales objectives, and bringing further efficiency, convenience, and innovation to retailers and players,” added IGT chief operating officer of North America lottery, Jay Gendron

“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with the Lottery and help it maximise funds toward good causes in Colorado such as the environment, recreation, and education.”

Last month IGT revealed that its IGT Global Services subsidiary had entered into a new agreement alongside Finnish gaming monopoly Veikkaus, which is to also run for an initial four year period, with one year renewal options included.
