IGT Signs Secondary Instant Ticket Printing Contract with the Colorado Lottery
LONDON, U.K. – IGT has signed a secondary contract to provide instant ticket printing services to the Colorado Lottery (“the Lottery”), following a competitive bid process. The six-year contract runs through July 1, 2023, and has the option for two two-year extensions for a total term of 10 years.
As a secondary printer, IGT will have the opportunity to print up to 20% of the Lottery’s annual games, and will also provide instant ticket game design, production, and related services. IGT has printed games for the Lottery since 2010. Most recently, IGT printed the Lottery’s GhostbustersTM game, which indexed well over 100 for over four months.
“We are pleased that the Colorado Lottery has chosen IGT for its instant printing needs,” said Michael Chambrello, IGT Chief Executive Officer, North America Lottery. “They’ve been a great partner for many years, and we’re proud to work with an organization so committed to the quality of its products and to re-investing its proceeds to the great outdoors of Colorado.”
