International Game Technology (IGT) has solidified its commitment to the Virginia Lottery through a three-year contract extension. 

This extension – running until October 2033 with the possibility of three additional one-year extensions – underscores IGT's long-standing partnership with the Virginia Lottery; a partnership that dates back to the year 2000.

As part of the contract extension, IGT will leverage its latest version of Aurora, a component of the Omnia lottery solution, to upgrade the Virginia Lottery's central retail system. 

IGT will also introduce the Retailer Pro S2 to replace 5,500 retailer terminals, as well as modernising the communications network to a cellular infrastructure. 

These improvements are geared towards providing the Virginia Lottery with better technology and new gameplay features, with a planned go-live date of October 2025.

Tony R. Russell, Interim Director of the Virginia Lottery, commented: "Since first partnering with the Virginia Lottery in 2000, IGT has helped us responsibly modernise our lottery offerings and drive sales growth for our business.

"We look forward to IGT's enhancements to our system and point-of-sale technology that will ultimately support our mission to generate revenue for Virginia's K-12 public education."

Jay Gendron, IGT CEO of Global Lottery, added: "IGT has worked closely with the Virginia Lottery for more than 20 years to deliver world-class, innovative lottery solutions and services.

“The upgraded technology being deployed for the Virginia Lottery as part of our latest extension will offer increased flexibility for the lottery to easily manage its back-end operations. 

“Additionally, the introduction of a progressive jackpot feature to the lottery's print 'n' play games will provide players with engaging new experiences."
