International Game Technology (IGT) has agreed to provide 850 new video lottery terminals (VLTs) to the Oregon State Lottery.
According to company press materials, this new contract represents a big win for IGT, which now holds more than 40 percent market share in the Oregon State Lottery program. This adds to the 1,500 VLTs that the Oregon State Lottery committed to last year.
IGT's line?up of VLTs offers games such as Vamps and Cats, both of which are also top performers on casino floors nationwide. In addition to the slot line?up, poker is also scheduled for release in Oregon, giving fans even more opportunities to play and win.
"As a leader in the VLT space, IGT remains focused on expanding into every regulated gaming jurisdiction, bringing the best possible content and technology to players who demand the ultimate gaming experience," said Eric Tom, executive vice president of global sales for IGT in a prepared statement. "On a global level, VLT markets continue to grow rapidly and IGT's recent deal with the Oregon State Lottery is just one example of how the company is on the forefront of the VLT market's growth."
In addition to its agreement with IGT for new VLTs, the Oregon State Lottery will upgrade 2,700 IGT Trim Line and Game King machines already in the field, with a new "best of the best" game set that offers top player favorites together on a single program.
