US gaming and lottery supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has agreed a deal to provide 1,500 new video lottery terminals (VLTs) to the Oregon Lottery.

The agreement extends the existing contract between the two companies, which IGT said would move the lottery closer to an all Game to System (G2S)-ready network.

"As the long-standing central control system and lottery system provider to the Oregon Lottery, we're very pleased to maintain our leading position in the Oregon VLT market with this extended agreement,” said Nick Khin, IGT senior vice president of sales for North America Gaming & Interactive.

“We secured this business with game themes that came from the two highly complementary legacy organizations that formed IGT, which serves as a powerful testament to the strength and market demand for our content portfolio."

The agreement includes a selection of popular content on two IGT cabinets. The E20 Upright cabinet will provide the Oregon Lottery with titles such as Prince of Thieves, Pharaoh's Fortune, White Nights Money Bags and Lucky Larry Lobstermania. The Oxygen cabinet will feature Big City 5s, Sphinx Wild, Wild Witch and Dragon's Temple.
