New York-listed International Game Technology (IGT) has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide the West Virginia Lottery with a new draw-based central system and lottery terminals.

The company’s IGT Global Solutions subsidiary won the contract following a competitive procurement process and will begin the roll-out of new products in June 2018.

As well as the draw-based central system and new terminals, the company will provide a multi-technology communications network and ongoing services to the West Virginia Lottery, an IGT client since 2009.

The new contract follows the recent signing of a four-year deal for IGT to provide instant ticket printing services to the lottery.

"We are excited to customize our global customer experience and retailer and player insights into a fully integrated service approach for the West Virginia Lottery," said Jay Gendron, IGT senior vice president, WLA North America Lottery. "We have designed our products and services to assist the lottery in achieving its sales and will work to improve growth and sustain profitability.

“We appreciate the lottery's continued confidence in IGT, and are proud to be a partner in the commitment of our customer to maximize returns for their good causes including West Virginia seniors, education, and tourism."

The lottery system contract will see West Virginia Lottery receive several components of IGT's Aurora platform, including back-office applications and business intelligence and analytics tools.
