The Missouri Lottery has signed a three-year contract extension with IGT Global Solutions Corporation to expand the former’s retail base.
The new agreement, which extends their existing partnership until June 30, 2025, will see the IGT subsidiary deploy 175 new cashless GameTouch 28 self-service vending machines, allowing for a more dynamic user experience among players.
IGT, which processes approximately 65% of lottery sales in the US, will also support the lottery’s launch of IGT’s successful Cash Pop draw game which offers flexibility to operators and players with its easy-to-play mechanics.
May Scheve Reardon, Executive Director at Missouri Lottery, commented: “The Missouri Lottery has trusted IGT and its industry-leading innovations to help responsibly grow our sales and fund public education in the state for more than 30 years.
“Including Cash Pop in our game portfolio is the latest example of how IGT has continually guided us through the evolving lottery industry. This exciting new game will allow our players to customise their game play for personalised experiences unlike any other on the market.
“Additionally, expanding our retailer base with IGT’s GameTouch 28 vending machines will provide more convenience to our players.”
IGT also provides the Missouri Lottery with its central system, retail terminals and equipment, instant tickets and field services, serving as its primary technology supplier since 1991.
Jay Gendron, Chief Operating Officer of IGT, added: “IGT applauds the Missouri Lottery for its continued forward-looking approach to ensure its players have access to the most entertaining lottery products and games.
“IGT’s cashless GameTouch vending machines and patented Cash Pop game are best-in-class solutions that draw upon our decades of industry leadership and are designed for the next generation of players. We look forward to helping the Lottery continue to maximise its funds toward public education over the next few years.”
