International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a new four-year contract to supply the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) with its video lottery terminal (VLT) monitoring systems.

The contract extension runs to July 6th, 2021, and sees the AGLC continue to use IGT's INTELLIGEN central system, allowing it to monitor 6,000 VLTs across the Canadian province.

The AGLC has been using the system since 2003, with IGT also supplying 4,800 of the terminals through a separate contract.

"The INTELLIGEN VLT system provides the integrity, security, ease of management, and advanced reporting that the AGLC has come to expect of IGT's solutions," said Jay Gendron, senior vice president of IGT's WLA North American lottery business.

The INTELLIGEN solution allows clients to monitor VLTs using multiple protocols, including the Game to System (G2S) open standard protocol.

"INTELLIGEN was developed to respond to the unique needs of distributed VLT customers, and with its open-standard interfaces, it will enable the AGLC to continue managing its gaming program efficiently and effectively now, and in future years."

Shares in International Game Technology plc (Co.Data) (NYQ:IGT) closed in New York Friday up 0.83 per cent at $20.54 per share.
