New York-listed International Game Technology (IGT) has secured a three-year extension to its deal with the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation until June 2025.

Through subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation, the company will help the lottery expand into new retail channels through its GameTouch 20 terminals and additional Keno-To-Go products.

The GameTouch 20 is IGT's newest self-service lottery vending machine, built specifically to meet big box retailer requirements.

IGT will also provide additional self-service lottery machines and Keno monitors and video controller units, giving lottery players greater game awareness of the lottery's Keno-to-Go product in social environments throughout Tennessee.

"By installing the GameTouch 20 terminals into some of our biggest retailers in the state, IGT is helping us expand our sales footprint and attract new players with its latest innovations," said Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation president and CEO Rebecca Hargrove. "We are excited to implement IGT's latest self-service vending machines and for the benefits it brings to our retailers and players. We look forward to continuing our valued partnership for years to come."

Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer, Lottery, commented: "We are committed to the Tennessee Lottery's long-term growth strategy, and as part of this contract extension, we will provide further convenience for retailers and players through the new GameTouch 20 vending machines and expanded Keno products.

"IGT has delivered cutting-edge lottery products and solutions to the Tennessee Lottery since the Lottery's inception in 2004, and has helped the Lottery return more than $4.7 billion to educational programs in the state. We are very pleased to be able to continue to work together to achieve its goals."

IGT also provides the Tennessee Lottery with lottery central systems, data center operations, network and field services, retail sales and support, call center, and marketing services.
