IGT has announced that its subsidiary, IGT Canada Solutions, has penned a five-year extension to a deal with Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) that will see the continuation of the lottery’s video lottery terminals supply.
The extension of the contract, running until July 2026, will upgrade IGT’s Intelligen system for use in Alberta and the firm will act as the lottery’s central systems provider.
Under the provisions of the extension, the firm will upgrade AGLC’s video lottery central system to the latest version of Intelligen, which includes improved network diagnostics and stability.
The lottery will also receive several ‘ilink Ultras’, IGT’s latest retailer site controller that has a separate point-of-sale device and logic box for increased flexibility, and an updated user interface with improved features for the retailer.
“IGT’s Intelligen systems software supports the volume, complexity and security of monitoring video lottery terminals throughout Alberta,” said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer of Gaming.
“As the leader in the regulated video lottery industry with more G2S deployments and specific VLT features than any other vendor, IGT developed its Intelligen system to respond to the unique needs of its customers. AGLC will receive the most advanced updates Intelligen has to offer, allowing them access to quick insight into the status of their entire VLT network.”
