IGT has agreed to supply more video lottery terminals to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, the fourth such contract in the last seven years between the supplier and the lottery.

Through the deal, IGT will supply WCLC with 720 CrystalDual 27 VLTs, which will feature the “highly successful” CX game set of VLT content in Saskatchewan, including titles such as 7’s Wild Gold, Big City 5’s, The Wild Life, Thunder Stampede, and new titles Cash Eruption, Temple of Fire and Greenback Attack.

Eric Karmark, WCLC Vice President, VLT Gaming & Operations, noted: “WCLC is committed to providing our VLT players with engaging content and high-performing hardware that deliver the best possible player experiences in Saskatchewan.

“The additional 720 VLT units and exciting new games from IGT speak volumes to that promise, and we look forward to enhancing the market with this deployment.”

IGT has stated the CrystalDual 27 has two displays with high-definition graphics, “a first-class audio package, ergonomic design, enhanced player interface and a mobile device charging port”.

The cabinets include a Game to System communication protocol, delivering features such as software download, remote configuration and software verification. An embedded player user interface is also present, with all VLTs connected for WCLC to manage and control via the INTELLIGEN central system.

“The award and delivery of 720 additional VLT units reinforces the depth of IGT’s commitment to WCLC’s continued growth, and the quality of IGT’s content and cabinets for the Canadian market,” added David Flinn, IGT Senior Vice President, Canada, South and Central America.

“IGT’s CrystalDual 27 continues to prove its versatility and relevance in gaming markets around the world as the premium dual-screen VLT cabinet. We’re pleased to continue partnering with WCLC to provide industry-leading content, including titles under the only Canadian VLT wide-area-progressive feature, Vault Breaker.”
