IGT secures igaming extension with Norsk Tipping
The contract, awarded to IGT after a public tender process, will come into effect in February 2021 and run for three years, with an option for Norsk Tipping to extend by a further year.
IGT will continue to provide its proprietary PlayCasino content, PlayRGS digital gaming platform and the IGT Connect integration layer.
The agreement also covers the ongoing supply of licensed third-party content from sub-suppliers NetEnt and ELKAB Studios.
Norsk Tipping began working with IGT in 2012, when IGT was selected as the sole supplier for the launch of legal online gambling in Norway.
IGT secured an extension to this deal in 2017 via competitive tender, under which it had been providing Norsk Tipping with PlayCasino content, licensed content from third-party sub-suppliers, its PlayRGS platform and IGT Connect integration layer.
In addition, IGT has supplied Norsk Tipping with its digital bingo platform since 2014, which was re-awarded to IGT via a public tender in 2018.
“IGT PlayDigital’s solutions enable Norsk Tipping to provide its players with highly engaging online content, including IGT’s top-performing PlayCasino games,” Norsk Tipping’s head of gaming operations Hans Erland Ringsvold said.
“When we first entered into the online casino market in 2014, IGT was our sole digital supplier, and since then has been fundamental to our program’s success.”
IGT’s senior vice president for PlayDigital, Enrico Drago, added: “Adding IGT’s and its sub-suppliers’ growing stable of popular titles for Norsk Tipping furthers our goal of delivering unrivalled gaming experiences that engage players.”
The deal comes after IGT earlier this week also extended its partnership with the Nebraska Lottery in the US. Agreed through its IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiary, the seven-year contract will see IGT serve as the primary vendor for the lottery’s instant and draw-based games and related services.
