The WCLC will receive IGT's CrystalDual 27 cabinets with IGT games, including two new titles.

International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a contract with the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC). As part of the deal, IGT will provide 720 video lottery terminals (VLTs). IGT has previously signed four other contracts with WCLC over the last seven years.

IGT's CrystalDual 27 VLTs will provide games to Saskatchewan such as: 7's Wild Gold, Big City 5's, The Wild Life and Thunder Stampede. Two new titles have also been developed as part of this agreement: Cash Eruption Temple of Fire and Greenback Attack.

David Flinn, IGT SVP, Canada, South and Central America, said, "The award and delivery of 720 additional VLT units reinforces the depth of IGT's commitment to WCLC's continued growth, and the quality of IGT's content and cabinets for the Canadian market.

"IGT's CrystalDual 27 continues to prove its versatility and relevance in gaming markets around the world. We're pleased to continue partnering with WCLC to provide content."

The CrystalDual 27 VLT is a cabinet with two displays and HD graphics. It was designed with an ergonomic shape and mobile phone charging ports for its players. The VLTs also incorporate IGT's Game to System communication protocol, which can enable software downloads, remote configuration and software verification.

Eric Karmark, WCLC VP of VLT Gaming & Operations, said, "WCLC is committed to providing our VLT players with engaging content and high-performing hardware that deliver the best possible player experiences in Saskatchewan.

"The additional 720 VLT units and exciting new games from IGT speak volumes to that promise, and we look forward to enhancing the market with this deployment."
