French-speaking Swiss lottery Loterie Romande has extended its contract with IGT Global Services until 2031.
Under the provisions of the agreement, the IGT subsidiary will continue providing lottery technology and deploy the back-end of its ilottery system, replacing Loterie Romande’s current system provider, in a bid to enhance the lottery player experience in Switzerland.
IGT’s ilottery technology will allow Loterie Romande to migrate the digital system to the cloud, which offers added security, dynamic scalability, and a reduced time to market for system enhancements. It also facilitates faster and easier integration of data and insights, and incorporates a suite of comprehensive responsible gaming features.
Jean-Luc Moner-Banet, Loterie Romande CEO, commented: “IGT has partnered with Loterie Romande for nearly 30 years, supplying us with the most advanced lottery hardware, systems and services that have maximised our contributions to good causes throughout the six French-speaking cantons in Switzerland where our players live.
“We trust that by converting to IGT’s ilottery system, we will be equipped with faster access to player data and analytics to ensure we offer the best player experience possible and responsibly drive sales growth to further benefit charitable organisations.”
Additionally, IGT will continue delivering Loterie Romande with its Aurora core lottery central system, as well the customised electronic lottery system which is also already in place.
Jay Gendron, IGT COO, added: “This extension agreement between Loterie Romande and IGT builds upon our comprehensive long-term partnership and represents the next evolution in supplying Swiss lottery players with unrivalled experiences.
“IGT’s sophisticated ilottery system will offer Loterie Romande a dynamic 360-degree player view to easily adapt to customer needs and wide-ranging modules to effectively manage and grow its ilottery programme.”
