IGT pens supply deal with New Zealand Lotteries Commission
International Game Technology (IGT) has brokered a deal with the New Zealand Lotteries Commission (Lotto NZ) to provide a Remote Game Server (RGS) system and Instant Win content to the country’s gambling market.
The agreement will run for five years, with the option to extend by two years and additional renewal opportunities.
Lotto NZ will be able to leverage IGT gaming content library, as well as integrate games from third-party developers, and offer services to consumers through the MyLotto interactive site.
In addition, IGT will continue to provide Lotto NZ with its lottery central system, terminal system and ticket scan devices, as well as central system and terminal maintenance, game development, and software support under its existing deal with the Commission.
IGT, operating as legacy GTECH, has provided lottery equipment and services to Lotto NZ since the lottery's inception in 1987.
Declan Harkin, senior vice-president and chief operating officer, international, at IGT, said: “IGT and Lotto NZ have worked together successfully for approximately 30 years, and this agreement demonstrates the customer's continued trust in our ability to deliver industry-leading solutions and content that will responsibly increase lottery sales and continue generating funds for good causes.”
