International Game Technology subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation has signed a seven-year base contract with the Nebraska Lottery to serve as the primary vendor for its instants and draw-based games and related services. The company was selected as the preferred bidder following the Cornhusker State’s competitive procurement process.
Brian Rockey, Nebraska Lottery Director, said: “For more than 25 years, IGT’s professionalism, expertise, services and solutions have been key to the Nebraska Lottery’s efforts to maximize contributions to benefit the environment, education, the Nebraska State Fair, and the Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund.
“We are very pleased to continue the trusted partnership we began with IGT in 1994, and look forward to the products, technology, and concepts they will bring in the future.”
Under the terms of the contract, IGT will upgrade the lottery’s draw-based central system to its Aurora solution, and it will deliver its terminal equipment at approximately 1,200 retailer locations statewide. The company will also provide compelling and innovative instant ticket games and related services. The contract runs until June 30, 2028 and allows for three two-year extensions.
Jay Gendron, IGT’s Chief Operating Officer of Lottery added: “IGT will leverage our decades of lottery experience to deliver industry-leading solutions that will provide the flexibility to help evolve, manage, and grow the Nebraska Lottery’s sales now and in the years ahead.
“We look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership with the Nebraska Lottery to provide proven technology and innovative games that will engage players and drive sales growth.”
The lottery will integrate IGT’s Aurora Platform and Retailer Pro, IGT’s retailer-friendly draw-based lottery terminal. The company will also deliver its complete instant game supply chain solution, Instant Advantage, which includes a tailored and strategic approach to the way it will design and print instant ticket games for the lottery. Secure warehousing and distribution of instant tickets to lottery retailers are also provided.
