IGT will provide California Lottery with its new cloud-based technology.

International Game Technology (IGT) has announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a contract amendment for a seven-year extension with the California Lottery to continue to be its primary lottery technology provider.

The contract adjustment is expected to run through October 2033 and it includes an additional five one-year extension options.

As part of the deal, IGT will update the California Lottery’s current IGT-second-chance platform to upgrade it to its latest cloud-based platform.

Additionally, IGT also plans to upgrade California's IGT central lottery system to its OMNIA platform.

IGT stated, “Additional central system-related business applications designed to optimize and manage all aspects of the Lottery's business will also be moved to the cloud.

"Deploying these platforms to the cloud will offer enhanced flexibility and reliability and allow for accelerated innovation.”

Additionally, IGT provides the California Lottery with instant ticket games and services, field services, support and maintenance of its central system, communications network, marketing and research capabilities, as well as call center support.

Jay Gendron, IGT's COO of Global Lottery, commented, "The California Lottery has trusted IGT to provide best-in-class, modern lottery solutions for more than three decades, driving continued increased sales for the Lottery and more than $41bn to support California's public schools.

"IGT's enhanced second-chance promotions platform will provide maximum flexibility for the California Lottery to create a variety of exciting promotional drawings and bonus capabilities for its players."

In a recent partnership, IGT provided its technology to the Lithuanian iLottery platform in the Republic of Lithuania.
