New York-listed supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has secured a three-year extension to its agreement with the Kansas Lottery.

Through its subsidiary IGT Global Solutions Corporation, the company will continue providing the lottery with its INTELLIGEN central computer system and services to monitor electronic gaming machines throughout the state.

The extension, part of the original central system services agreement awarded to IGT in 2008, will begin on 15 December 2019 and runs through 14 December 2022.

"We have leveraged more than 20 years of development expertise and knowledge gathering with gaming central system customers throughout the world to produce the INTELLIGEN system to ensure it's equipped with the most advanced tools for our customers," said Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer, North America Lottery.

"IGT and the Kansas Lottery have built a strong partnership since this contract began more than 10 years ago, and we're pleased to be furthering this relationship by continuing to provide our advanced system to the nearly 5,000 electronic gaming machines in the state."

Kansas Lottery acting executive director Stephen Durrell added: "IGT's INTELLIGEN system has helped the Kansas Lottery meet the objectives of operating our electronic gaming machines with the highest standards of integrity and security to benefit the state for the last 10 years. We look forward to continuing our relationship over the next few years."

In addition to the video central system and related services, IGT also provides instant ticket games and printing to the Kansas Lottery.
