International Game Technology announced today that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed an agreement with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML) to debut IGT’s Retailer Vue lottery terminal in Portugal, following a competitive procurement. The delivery of up to 7,200 camera-based terminals is expected to be completed sometime next year.

IGT’s Retailer Vue lottery terminal has a built-in 13.3 megapixel camera that can read playslips, winning tickets, identification cards, and mobile devices, freeing up retail counter space by eliminating the need for additional hardware and cables. Modernizing the retail lottery space, the Retailer Vue reduces the barrier between a player and clerk with an open design that allows player-retailer interaction and enables transparent contactless transactions.

“In today’s ever-evolving lottery landscape, IGT is helping SCML meet present and future market needs,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery. “IGT’s Retailer Vue combines convenience and transparency with key features designed to increase productivity and modernize the lottery retail experience for SCML.”

IGT’s Retailer Vue terminal is compatible with in-store advertising displays allowing the Lottery to promote its products and jackpots at the point of sale. Additionally, retailers will benefit from the Retailer Vue’s touchscreen interface and its ability to complete fast and efficient sales transactions. Retailer Vue also enables players to interact directly with the terminal and with its ability to read printed and digital barcodes, which enhances player confidence and transparency with each sale.

As the global lottery market leader, IGT has more than 475,000 point-of-sale terminals in customer jurisdictions worldwide.
