IGT will present its portfolio of growth-driving solutions at World Lottery Summit (WLS) 2022, including the global debut of ‘OMNIA’, the industry’s ‘first truly omnichannel solution’.

Taking place October 16-20 in Vancouver, British Columbia, WLS 2022 will see IGT showcase its full array of digital tools, new games, and ‘innovative’ solutions that have been designed to increase lottery sales and engage the next generation of players.

These include OMNIA, a ‘comprehensive and modular solution’ that gives lotteries the means to digitalise the retail experience, whether the organisation sells ilottery games or not.

OMNIA is the integration of IGT’s retail lottery core central system and ilottery solution. According to the firm, it bridges the two to offer lottery operators the functionality they need to run their business now and into the future.

“WLS will be a celebratory event as it marks IGT’s first opportunity to attend an in-person lottery tradeshow in three years, and we anticipate much excitement in our booth as we reconvene with our global customers,” said Fabio Cairoli, IGT CEO Global Lottery.

“As the category captain, IGT leverages our decades of experience and unrivalled products to help our customers deliver the future of lottery. One of the innovations that we are most excited to introduce at WLS is OMNIA, the industry’s first truly omnichannel solution.”

IGT’s booth at the WLS will incorporate a variety of topics and technologies, including retail lottery, ilottery and instant ticket services.

“IGT has demonstrated extraordinary growth in our lottery operations over the last few years. We’ve made significant investments in research and development, especially in our systems hardware and software, printing, and our ilottery segment, and we are excited to share these solutions with our great customers at WLS,” added Vince Sadusky, IGT CEO.

“The lottery industry has evolved tremendously since our last in-person trade show in 2019. Our exciting new solutions that represent the modernisation of lottery will be on display at WLS, along with some of the industry’s most popular licensed products.

“These solutions are supported by the industry’s best talent as we continue to propel our industry leadership.”

Cairoli and Sadusky will also be contributing to panel discussions at WLS.
