The extension runs through July 2026.
"IGT's INTELLIGEN systems software supports the volume, complexity and security of monitoring video lottery terminals throughout Alberta," said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming. "As the leader in the regulated video lottery industry with more G2S deployments and specific VLT features than any other vendor, IGT developed its INTELLIGEN system to respond to the unique needs of its customers. AGLC will receive the most advanced updates INTELLIGEN has to offer, allowing them access to quick insight into the status of their entire VLT network."
Under the terms of the extension, IGT will upgrade AGLC's video lottery central system to the latest version of INTELLIGEN, which includes improved network diagnostics and stability. AGLC will also receive several iLINK Ultras, IGT's latest retailer site controller that has a separate point-of-sale device and logic box for increased flexibility, and an updated user interface with improved features for the retailer.

The software is built on more than 25 years of central system experience and offers stable, secure command and control capabilities. It supports the Gaming Standards Association's Game to System® (G2S) standard protocol, which enables an enhanced player user interface, improved responsible gaming features, exciting multi-level mystery jackpots (Vault Breaker®) and additional player-centric functionality.
