Intralot US, a subsidiary of Greek lottery gaming systems provider Intralot, has agreed an extension to its deal to supply its online lottery gaming system and related services and products to the New Mexico Lottery Board (NMLB).

An amendment to the supplier’s current seven-year contract sees the deal extended for a further three years, with the agreement now continuing until 2018.

Under the terms of the contract, Intralot will continue to supply the New Mexico Lottery with its Lotos O/S online gaming computer system, including terminals, peripheral devices and a satellite network linking retail terminals to a centralised system.

This also includes additional services such as marketing support, maintenance and repair, field operations and customer support.

David Barden, interim director of the New Mexico Lottery, commented that he was looking forward to continuing the lottery’s “productive” relationship with Intralot, with revenue used to support higher education in the state.

“New Mexicans have benefitted from our relationship with Intralot,” he explained. “As our partner Intralot has consistently provided excellent technology and service at a value-based price.”

Intralot USA president and chief executive Tom Little said that on being awarded the contract the company had to undertake the “difficult” task of upgrading the lottery’s system to the Intralot solution.

“Once the system was converted our team have continued to meet the needs and goals of the New Mexico Lottery and are pleased to continue our relationship with the award of the extension of our contract,” Little continued. “We will continue to stand by the Lottery and support its efforts to increase its sales for the benefit of the State’s good causes.”

The supplier’s group CEO Constantinos Antonopoulos added that he was happy to continue the company’s close cooperation with the New Mexico Lottery.

“Intralot’s well-established presence in the US ratifies our relationship of trust with the US Lotteries,” he said.

“This extension of our contract is a result of our consistent offering of pioneering products and services that focus on addressing the needs and expectations of the Lotteries, as well as the hard work and dedication to excellence of the Intralot USA team,” Antonopoulos concluded.
