LONDON, U.K. – Sept. 12, 2017 – International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT) announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation (with International Game Technology PLC, hereinafter “IGT”), has agreed to a contract amendment with the Virginia Lottery for the provision of new mobile products and digital services.

IGT’s Player Direct Core solution will include a mobile application, PlaySpot™ solution, player loyalty, mobile draw-based iKeno, mobile based eInstants, and customer service support. This new digital platform includes a player-friendly mobile app which allows Virginia Lottery players to play exciting new digital games at Lottery-licensed retail locations.

The Virginia Lottery intends to scale the solution within current retail trade styles, as well as expand into new and non-traditional retail environments where lottery products are not currently available. The Lottery retail and sales team will partner with IGT to identify growth and innovative expansion opportunities. “The Virginia Lottery’s business strategy continues to focus on digital efforts both directly to the consumer on valottery.com and with our valuable retail partners,” said Paula Otto, Executive Director of the Virginia Lottery.

“We recently worked with IGT to roll out all new equipment at our 5,300 retailers. Adding these new mobile and digital capabilities will help us to continue to drive sales and profits for K-12 public education while promoting responsible play.” “IGT is pleased to participate in the Virginia Lottery’s growth since 2000, and assist them in expanding retail growth opportunities with this new innovative product to bring digital games to retail,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Senior Vice President, WLA North America Lottery.

Players will be able to register, create a mobile wallet, earn rewards, and receive push notifications. The Lottery will expand its impressive registered player base through PlaySpot and its full range of digital games to be sold while Bluetooth is connected to the Lottery retail network.
