International Game Technology announced Wednesday that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a new 10-year scratch-ticket-printing and services contract with the Texas Lottery Commission. Following a competitive procurement, IGT was awarded the printing contract to provide scratch-ticket content and supporting services. The new contract will extend IGT’s partnership with the Texas Lottery through August 2034.
“Since our inception in 1992, IGT has been a valued partner and has helped the Texas Lottery generate more than $35 billion in revenue for good causes,” said Gary Grief, Texas Lottery Commission Executive Director.
“For 30 years, IGT has worked closely with the Texas Lottery to pilot some of our most innovative products such as Super Ticket, in-lane solutions, and the scan-and-check feature of the mobile convenience app,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery. “These lottery products and supporting operational services provide a multitude of benefits for players and retailers across the state.”
IGT is the Texas Lottery’s exclusive supplier for the highly successful Loteria family of games. Loteria is available at six different price points ($1, $3, $5, $10, $20, and $50) and in 2021, it generated more than $1.6 billion in sales. This new contract will provide Texas Lottery with continued access to IGT’s catalogue of games, licensed content, designs, and features.
In addition to scratch-ticket printing, IGT provides Texas with lottery operations and services, including its lottery central systems, data-center operations, field-sales organization, retail equipment and support, warehouse and distribution, call center, and marketing services.
As the global lottery market leader, IGT is the primary technology provider to eight of the world’s 10 largest lotteries and continues to grow its ticket-printing global market share with more than 40 long-term instant ticket services contracts worldwide.
