US gaming and lottery supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has agreed a four-year extension to its contract to continue supplying the Nebraska Lottery with its lottery services.

The new agreement, through the company's GTECH Corporation subsidiary, will see the relationship between the companies continue until June 30th 2021, with additional lottery equipment provided to the lottery.

Among the additional products IGT will supply are its Altura GT1200 terminals, AccuTherm Ultra printers and ES MultiMedia flat panel advertising monitors.

It will also install its Ticket-Scan Plus self-service ticket checkers in all current lottery retail locations.

The lottery will be provided with the ability to receive certain instant ticket print options at no additional costs over the extension period, with IGT acting as its sole printer of such tickets.

The Nebraska Lottery has been a long-term customer of GTECH, working with the company before its merger with IGT.

“IGT is committed to supporting the growth of its customers,” said Michael Chambrello, chief executive of IGT’s North America lottery business. “Over the years, we have worked together to understand the Nebraska Lottery's vision in order to deliver products and services that meet the Lottery's needs, as well as the needs of its retailers and players..

“IGT welcomes the opportunity to continue being of service to the Nebraska Lottery over the next several years and working to generate proceeds for its beneficiary programs.”
