The company will deliver its enhanced solutions to the state lottery.

IGT has extended its partnership with the Virginia Lottery. The duo signed a three-year contract extension, which will expire in October 2033.

As part of the deal, IGT will provide its new point-of-sale hardware, gameplay features, communications network and upgraded lottery central system to the Virginia Lottery. IGT will install its new version of Aurora, which is part of the company’s Omnia lottery solution.

The Virginia Lottery will also upgrade its 5,500 retailer terminals and replace them with the Retailer Pro S2.

Virginia Lottery Interim Director Tony R. Russell described its partnership with IGT as beneficial to the company and the community.

He commented, "Since first partnering with the Virginia Lottery in 2000, IGT has helped us responsibly modernize our lottery offerings and drive sales growth for our business. 

"We look forward to IGT's enhancements to our system and point-of-sale technology that will ultimately support our mission to generate revenue for Virginia's K-12 public education."

IGT COO Global Lottery Jay Gendron briefly discussed the company’s ongoing relationship with the Virginia Lottery.

He said, "IGT has worked closely with the Virginia Lottery for more than 20 years to deliver world-class, innovative lottery solutions and services.

"The upgraded technology being deployed for the Virginia Lottery as part of our latest extension will offer increased flexibility for the Lottery to easily manage its back-end operations. Additionally, the introduction of a progressive jackpot feature to the Lottery's Print 'n Play games will provide players with engaging new experiences."

IGT provides lottery services around the globe. The company offers its primary technology to 25 lotteries in the US, along with eight of the 10 largest lotteries in the world.
