IGT has signed a five-year contract extension with Manitoba Liquor and Lottery Corporation (MBLL) to implement its Intelligen video lottery central system, elevating the lottery’s VLT capabilities.
The Intelligen system will connect and upgrade around 6,600 Manitoba VLTs over the next five years, allowing MBLL to access analytics and performance data.
“With IGT’s enhanced Intelligen system, MBLL can easily access insight into the status and performance of its VLT network,” said Nick Khin, IGT Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Gaming.
“Developed to respond to the unique needs of our customers, Intelligen supports the volume, complexity and security MBLL needs to operate its thousands of VLTs located throughout the region with confidence and efficiency.”
Under the terms of the agreement, IGT will upgrade MBLL’s video lottery central system to the latest version of Intelligen, which includes improved network diagnostics.
MBLL will receive several iLINK Ultras, IGT’s most up-to-date retailer site controller featuring a separate point-of-sale device and logic box for increased flexibility.
Furthermore, MBLL will benefit from IGT’s commercial casino table games and cabinets, as well as the IGT Advantage casino management system and PlayCasino game.
Recently, IGT announced a reshuffle of its executive and board leadership structure, stemming from the retirement of Lorenzo Pelliciolo from his role as Chairperson of the Board.
Marco Sala, currently IGT’s CEO, will take on a new role as Executive Chair of the Board, replacing Pelliociolo after 19-years of service to the company.
