"Including Cash Pop in our game portfolio is the latest example of how IGT has continually guided us through the evolving lottery industry.
“This exciting new game will allow our players to customise their game play for personalised experiences unlike any other on the market. Additionally, expanding our retailer base with IGT's GameTouch 28 vending machines will provide more convenience to our players."

IGT’s cashless GameTouch vending machines and patented Cash Pop game are best-in-class solutions that draw upon our decades of industry leadership and are designed for the next generation of players. We look forward to helping the Lottery continue to maximise its funds toward public education over the next few years."
