Providers International Game Technology (IGT) are to supply online casino games to the gaming website of Canadian state operators Loto-Québec.
IGT will launch a selection of games on the Espace Jeux site later this year, with the first phase of the agreement seeing Cleopatra, Wheel of Fortune – Hollywood Edition, Monopoly and Clue made available to players in Quebec. The games are to be hosted on the Loto-Quebec servers in Montreal.
The second phase of the arrangement will integrate the IGT Casino remote game server (rgs) which will see another 16 IGT online games – developed in Canadian French – made available on the site, hosted from a new IGT data centre in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Further rgs releases will see over 30 casino-style games being made available by the end of 2012, including a number of IGT Video Poker titles, with all games supplied in both English and Canadian French.
IGT executive vice president of emerging businesses Robert Melendres said: “The addition of Loto-Quebec as an interactive business-to-business partner is further proof of our commitment to the North American online and mobile market.
“Convergence is crucial to the future of North American casino gaming and IGT is in the best position to provide the many options operators such as Loto-Quebec are looking for as they expand their operations.”
