The London-based gaming giant formerly headquartered in Reno, will continue to provide new lottery technology and ongoing services through January 2031.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Michigan Lottery, one that dates back to 1988," said Jay Gendron, IGT COO, Lottery. "As one of the most successful lotteries in the United States, the Michigan Lottery continues to achieve record sales and contributions to the Michigan School Aid fund, its beneficiary. We look forward to providing industry-leading technology that will assist the Michigan Lottery in managing and growing its business now and in the years ahead."
IGT's new Retailer Pro terminals will replace the 11,550 existing lottery terminals.
