International Game Technology has announced that its IGT México Lottery subsidiary has secured an extended collaboration with La Lotería Nacional para la Asistencia Pública.
This will enable the firm to continue providing an integrated draw-based/instant ticket system, draw-based lottery terminals, a communications network, and additional lottery products and ongoing services, to the Mexican national lottery.
“For more than three decades, IGT has provided our lottery customer in Mexico with the expertise, technology, and services it has needed to generate results, which ultimately benefit social and health programs,” said Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer of lottery.
“As Lotenal navigates this transformational period, IGT’s innovative, reliable, and proven technology will continue to be a key driver of its evolution.”
IGT’s ongoing services to Lotenal, effective until March 2, 2022, include lottery game transactions and instant ticket distribution across 8,200 terminals nationwide.
Furthermore, it also includes continuous development of new B2B retail channels; installation, repair, maintenance and monitoring of its total base of lottery terminals; retailer training; field service; call centre operations and hotline management; a fixed-odds sports betting retail network; and marketing support to further enhance the group’s overall product and game portfolio.
“For the Lotería Nacional, the extension of the contract with IGT contributes to the certainty and security that we offer to our clients in a year of great challenges for all of us, which has also been a year of transition and internal transformation,” added Mario Caballero Luna, Lotenal chief of advisors.
