The contract will run until June 2027 and includes 10 additional one-year contract extension options. Subject to further government approvals, terminals will begin to be installed in retail locations in the second half of 2023.

The agreement marks the first time that self-serve technology is expected to be available to lottery players in the Canadian province of Ontario.

“As OLG embarks on the next evolution of lottery play in Ontario, we will work with key partners like IGT to deliver responsible, secure and convenient access to player-favourite lottery games,” said OLG President and CEO Duncan Hannay.

“The introduction of self-serve lottery technology throughout Ontario would allow us to continue to drive sales and maximise revenue for provincial priorities for the benefit of the people of Ontario.”

Through the deal, IGT will provide OLG with 1,400 GameTouch 28 self-serve lottery terminals for deployment at lottery retailers across Ontario, along with its OpenRetail terminal software application, ShowMaker multimedia content creation and management system, and retailer advisory services.

IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery Jay Gendron commented: “IGT is excited to partner with OLG to responsibly enhance the player experience in Ontario with the debut of our self-serve lottery terminals.

“As the largest lottery in Canada, OLG consistently leads the charge in modernising the player journey for its customers. IGT's self-serve technology complements OLG’s goals for innovation and provides added convenience, functionality and unrivalled experiences for players.”
