International Game Technology PLC (IGT) and its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a seven-year contract extension with Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) to continue providing lottery technology, content, and ongoing services and support in Jamaica.

With the previous contract period scheduled to end in January 2026, the latest extension is for a period of seven years, extending the contract through 2033 and enabling the lottery technology provider to continue strategically supporting the lottery for the next 12 years.

Under the agreement, IGT will continue providing lottery products, games and services. As part of a facilities management integrated services arrangement, it will also continue to operate and maintain its central system, terminals, and communications network, producing high transaction volumes daily for the lottery business and providing marketing support and field services.

The agreement also includes data centre operations and a 24-7 customer contact centre, game design and development, data analytics, strategic planning, and sales support.

SVL Executive Chairman Gary Peart said: “Over the past 19 years, IGT’s commitment to our growth and provision of superior service has directly influenced SVL’s ongoing success.

“This agreement represents the next chapter in our winning partnership, and further supports SVL for expansion, reinforcing our market leadership position and our place as an integral part of the fabric of Jamaica.

“SVL is an important contributor to nation-building on multiple fronts and growing business for all stakeholders. Our long-term strategic relationship with IGT is a key enabler for our growth platform and delivering our vision for SVL in the region.”

In addition to its lottery contract, IGT also provides mobile phone top-up services to SVL, as well as operational support for its VLT program, including field services, installations for new retailers, and marketing and sales support.

The lottery technology provider has been working with the lottery since it began selling online games in 2001.

Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer of Lottery, added: “This latest extension demonstrates IGT’s and SVL’s mutual commitment to creating value for SVL’s stakeholders through innovative gaming solutions, while emphasizing SVL’s confidence in the performance and stability of IGT’s offering.

“As SVL continues to offer best-in-class lottery and gaming products, this extension will sustain business momentum and player engagement, make an impact on small businesses through SVL’s expanding retailer network, and ultimately benefit all Jamaicans.”

Earlier this month, IGT announced it will continue providing the Iowa Lottery with instant ticket games and related services as part of a one-year contract extension with the lottery.
