Spielo subsidiary receives Illinois VLT license
January 26, 2012
The Illinois Gaming Board has granted a manufacturer license to Lottomatica Group subsidiary Spielo
International Canada, giving Spielo the ability to provide its products and services to the new Illinois video gaming terminal (VGT) market.
The company will be providing its player-tested prodiGiVu and Vu Slant terminals, as well as a suite of poker and line games, to VGT operators through its distribution agreement with American Gaming & Electronics, Inc (AG&E). Spielo and AG&E expect to begin selling VGTs and related games in the state once the Illinois Gaming Board grants VGT operator licenses.
“We’re pleased that Spielo International Canada has been approved to offer its products to the Illinois market,” said Walter Bugno, President and CEO of Lottomatica Group’s Spielo International Gaming Division. “In similar operator-based markets, such as South Dakota and Montana, our games and terminals are top performers. In Oregon, which is very similar to Illinois in regards to locations and maximum machine requirements, our prodiGi Vu VGT continues to be the top-performing terminal.”
