IGT has confirmed that its subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation has finalised an agreement with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML) to debut its new lottery terminal in the Portuguese capital.

SCML secured the rights to launch the ‘innovative’ Retailer Vue lottery terminal for the first time after a procurement process described as ‘competitive’ by IGT.

The delivery of up to 7,200 camera-based terminals is expected to be completed in 2023 and they will feature a built-in 13.3 megapixel camera that can read payslips, winning tickets, identification cards and mobile devices.

This technology has been designed to modernise the retail lottery field and free up retail counter space by eliminating the need for additional hardware and cables.

“In today’s ever-evolving lottery landscape, it is important that IGT provides SCML with high-performing solutions to meet present and future market needs,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery.

“IGT’s Retailer Vue combines convenience and transparency with key features designed to increase productivity and modernise the lottery retail experience for SCML.

“We look forward to our continued partnership with SCML and the world debut of our new terminal which will benefit the lottery, its retailers and players while driving maximum sales growth and contributions toward good causes.”

The Retailer Vue will also feature an open design allowing for player and retailer interaction and enabling transparent, contactless transactions.

The terminal is compatible with in-store advertising displays allowing the lottery to promote its products and jackpots at the point of sale.

Additionally, retailers will benefit from the Retailer Vue’s ‘intuitive’ touchscreen interface and its ability to complete fast and efficient sales transactions.

The Retailer Vue also enables players to interact directly with the terminal and with its ability to read printed and digital barcodes.

This latest deal follows previous announcements earlier this year of IGT Global Solutions Corporation bolstering its presence in the lottery space.

In June, the IGT subsidiary penned a 10-year agreement with the Kansas Lottery while a multi-year contract was also finalised with La Lotería Nacional (LOTENAL) to lend its lottery and sports betting expertise to the Mexican company.
