Home » IGT extends contract with New York Lottery until 2026

IGT Global Solutions Corporation, a subsidiary of International Game Technology (IGT), has signed a four-year contract extension with the New York Lottery, extending the current contract until August 2026.
The supplier will launch a new claims and payments system as part of the extension with “one of the most successful lotteries in the United States.” In addition, the group will continue to provide the New York Lottery with its lottery central system and related technology, as well as retailer training, field services, call center support, instant ticket warehousing and distribution, and infrastructure upgrades.
“IGT has had a trusted partnership with the New York Lottery since 1986,” said Jay Gendron, COO of IGT Global Lottery. “We have collaborated with the Lottery for more than 35 years to deliver world-class, innovative solutions for retailers and players alike.”

Currently, the supplier has over 475,000 point-of-sale terminals in customer jurisdictions around the world.

IGT announced earlier this week that it will contribute to a $415 million settlement to end a class action lawsuit related to DoubleDown Interactive (DDI). Benson v DoubleDown Interactive is a lawsuit filed against DDI over its social casino product, which the plaintiffs claim violated Washington State law.

Meanwhile, IGT purchased DoubleDown in 2012 before selling it to DoubleU Games for $825 million in 2017. In addition, the supplier has entered into a long-term agreement to provide content on DoubleDown Casino.

As a result, IGT was named as a defendant in the plaintiffs’ lawsuit alongside DDI. However, both IGT and DDI have now announced a settlement agreement to end the lawsuit and related proceedings.
