IGT expands Asian reach with Pan Malaysian Pools deal

International Game Technology (IGT) will provide a range of lottery services to the Pan Malaysian Pools (PMP) via its IGT Global Services Limited and IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiaries.

The 10-year contract covers delivery of IGT’s Aurora central lottery system and other system components, which will be integrated into PMP’s dmcGO ilottery platform with the end goal being an upgrade of its existing system technology and further growth of its business.

Tan Kong Han, PMP Managing Director, said: “Over the last 12 years, IGT has demonstrated its forward-looking lottery expertise by helping PMP introduce innovative and responsible, growth-driving lottery solutions into the market.

“IGT’s sophisticated Aurora central system and advanced features, as well as its integration with our dmcGO platform, will help PMP provide our players with engaging and convenient lottery experiences over the next decade.”

The renewed partnership adds another layer to IGT’s international operations, specifically boosting the London-based lottery and ilottery supplier’s reach in Asia after signing a plethora of deals in the European and North American markets.

This year alone has seen the company partner with high-profile European operators such as Loterie Nationale Belgium (LNB), the Polish Totalizator Sportowy and Switzerland’s Société de la Loterie de la Suisse Romande, whilst in the Americas deals have been clinched with Canada’s Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLCC) and Brazil’s Minas Gerais State Lottery.

Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery, added: “This contract extension marks an exciting new chapter for PMP and IGT, as we continue working together to modernise lottery offerings throughout Malaysia.

“Our world-class Aurora system and special features will provide valuable insights to PMP, helping grow their business and maximise funds for The Community Chest, a charitable trust funded by PMP that focuses on providing financial assistance to educational institutions in Malaysia.”
