IGT has confirmed that its subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation has entered a 10-year agreement with the Kansas Lottery to bolster its electronic gaming central system.

Under the provisions of the partnership, IGT will deploy an ‘enhanced’ version of its INTELLIGEN electronic gaming system to equip the Kansas Lottery with the tools to ‘strategically manage its electronic gaming machine network’.

The deal, IGT noted, will allow the lottery to provide its player with a more optimised gaming experience as the INTELLIGEN system boasts highly developed site controllers to ensure network diagnostics and communications between gaming machines are efficient. 

Other features of the INTELLIGEN system that the Kansas Lottery will benefit from include advanced business intelligence, day-to-day operations management and an updated disaster recovery technology.

“IGT’s upgraded INTELLIGEN system will provide the Kansas Lottery with a suite of comprehensive tools designed to drive revenues and offer its players world-class gaming experiences,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery

“INTELLIGEN’s improved system performance will also allow the Lottery to manage its vast network with maximum efficiency over the next decade and position the Lottery to deploy future functionality to meet the needs of the evolving gaming landscape.”

Extending a previous agreement between the two parties, the new contract is set to expire on December 14, 2032.
