New York-listed gaming supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a six-year contract extension to provide instant ticket services to the Texas Lottery Commission.

The agreement was signed through subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation, with the extension running until August 31st 2024.

Texas was the first jurisdiction in the US to launch IGT's Super Ticket, which offers players the chance to play multiple games on a single, oversized instant ticket.

In collaboration with the Texas Lottery, IGT also developed the successful Loteria line at the $3, $5, and $10 price points, with a $20 "Million Dollar Loteria" ticket scheduled to launch later this month.

"IGT and the Texas Lottery Commission have established a valuable partnership since the Lottery's inception in 1992, and IGT looks forward to furthering our longstanding relationship through this contract extension," said Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer, Lottery.

"Together with the lottery, we will continue to deliver innovative games to Texas Lottery players to help increase sales, attract new players, and maximize contributions for education and Veterans."
