Backed by 20 years of central system experience, IGT’s Intelligen software will monitor and control more than 11,500 VLTs throughout Oregon.
IGT will upgrade the Oregon Lottery’s central computer system with the latest version of its Intelligen software. The Intelligen central system supports the volume, complexity, and security of monitoring and controlling more than 11,500 video lottery terminals (VLTs) throughout Oregon.
“Our longstanding partnership with IGT has enabled us to operate our statewide video lottery system with the highest standards of integrity and security, and has helped us grow revenue to fund programs Oregonians care about including schools, parks, and economic development,” said Barry Pack, Oregon State Lottery director.
“We look forward to collaborating with IGT on the Intelligen upgrade, so we can continue to provide our players the chance to win exciting jackpots through a safe and reliable system.”
Intelligen systems are deployed worldwide connecting a wide range of VLTs in a variety of gaming environments.
The software is built on more than 20 years of central system experience and offers stable, secure command and control capabilities. It supports the Gaming Standards Association’s Game to System (G2S) standard protocol, which enables an enhanced player user interface, improved responsible gaming features, and additional player-centric functionality.
“Through the upgrade of IGT Intelligen, the Oregon Lottery will gain access to industry-leading technology that can help drive revenue and position the Lottery to deploy future functionality,” said Jay Gendron, IGT’s COO, Lottery.
“The Oregon Lottery has one of North America’s most successful VLT programs, and IGT has been providing it with innovative technology for more than three decades.
We are confident that the Lottery will benefit from these enhancements through improved system performance and the ability to manage its network more efficiently.” The Oregon Lottery has been an IGT customer since 1985.
In addition to VLTs and the Intelligen central system, IGT also provides the Oregon Lottery with traditional draw-based lottery products and instant ticket games and services.
Staying with state lotteries but moving eastwards, the company’s subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions has amended its agreement with the Minnesota State Lottery to extend its existing contract for three years through to November 2026.
Under the terms of the amended agreement, IGT will install and maintain 100 GameTouch 20 self-service lottery vending machines throughout big box retailers in the North Star State. “IGT is helping the Minnesota State Lottery increase our sales footprint and attract new players through the addition of the innovative GameTouch 20s,” said Adam Prock, executive director of the Minnesota State Lottery.
“Generating more funds for the State and our important beneficiaries is our goal, and introducing modern lottery conveniences like IGT’s new self-service vending machines will help us to deliver on our mission and better serve our retail partners and players alike.”
IGT will also continue providing the Minnesota State Lottery with lottery central systems, instant ticket processing system, data centre operations, call centre, field services, retailer training, and marketing services.
“IGT has delivered cuttingedge lottery products and solutions to the Minnesota State Lottery since it became a valued customer of ours in 2003,” Gendron continued.
“We are committed to the Minnesota State Lottery’s longterm growth strategy and believe the addition of the GameTouch 20s will complement the Lottery’s well-established operation and provide further convenience to players and retailers,” he added.
