New York-listed supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a one-year extension to its instant tickets supply contract with the District of Columbia’s Office of Lottery and Charitable Games.

The extension sees IGT Global Solutions continue to provide instant ticket games and related services to the lottery through to the end of this year.

The contract includes game planning and marketing, research and analytics, graphics support, and the production and printing of instant tickets.

“IGT has worked closely with the DC Lottery on games that engage their player community, such as the game Lucky Pets,” said Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer, Lottery. “IGT is pleased to continue working with the DC Lottery, and we look forward to enhancing their instant ticket program with creative new content over the next year.”

IGT has been a print vendor for the DC Lottery since 2014. During this time, IGT has developed multiple tickets for the lottery, ranging in price from $1 to $10. In addition, the supplier helped the lottery launch its first Super Ticket in March last year.

Shares in International Game Technology plc (NYQ:IGT) closed in New York Wednesday down 0.88 per cent at $16.89 per share.
