International Game Technology announced Thursday that its subsidiary, IGT Global Services Limited, has extended its contract with Société de la Loterie de la Suisse Romande until 2031. Under the terms of the new agreement, IGT will continue providing lottery technology and deploy the back end of its iLottery system, replacing Loterie Romande’s current back-end-system provider.
“IGT has partnered with Loterie Romande for nearly 30 years, supplying us with the most advanced lottery hardware, systems, and services that have maximized our contributions to good causes throughout the six French-speaking cantons in Switzerland where our players live,” said Jean-Luc Moner-Banet, Loterie Romande CEO. “We trust that by converting to IGT’s iLottery system, we will be equipped with faster access to player data and analytics to ensure we offer the best player experience possible and responsibly drive sales growth to further benefit charitable organizations.”
“This extension agreement between Loterie Romande and IGT builds on our long-term partnership and represents the next evolution in supplying Swiss lottery players with unrivaled experiences,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery. “IGT’s sophisticated iLottery system will offer Loterie Romande a dynamic 360-degree player view to easily adapt to customer needs and wide-ranging modules to effectively manage and grow its iLottery program.”
IGT’s iLottery technology will allow Loterie Romande to migrate the digital system to the cloud. Among many benefits, cloud technology offers added security, dynamic scalability, and a reduced time to market for system enhancements. It also facilitates faster and easier integration of data and insights. IGT’s iLottery system also incorporates a suite of comprehensive responsible gaming features.
In addition to the new iLottery system, IGT will continue delivering Loterie Romande with its Aurora core lottery central system that offers agile elements designed to drive lottery innovation and profitability. IGT will continue to provide Loterie Romande with a customized electronic lottery system.
