International Game Technology PLC announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has extended its contract with the South Dakota Lottery for five years, until 2031. As part of this contract extension, IGT will deliver its Scan and Redeem solution, enabling South Dakota Lottery players to scan a draw-based or instant scratch ticket and redeem winnings from $101 – $5,000 directly into their linked bank account, via automated clearing house (ACH) transfer.
“By introducing IGT’s Scan and Redeem functionality, South Dakota Lottery offers players the opportunity to have expanded options to receive their winnings, rather than needing to drive several hours to a redemption center or wait for checks to be delivered in the mail. IGT has been our trusted growth partner for nearly 15 years, and we are pleased to extend this successful partnership for five more years, providing more convenient lottery solutions to our players,” Norm Lingle, Executive Director of South Dakota Lottery, said.
“IGT’s Scan and Redeem component offers enhanced player options to better accommodate the South Dakota Lottery and its players. Our lottery technology is backed by decades of lottery industry leadership and incorporates the most secure, reliable and responsible functionality. Over the course of this extension, we are confident that the Lottery will continue to benefit from our advanced solutions, resulting in increased funds for the State’s good causes,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery.

Since then, IGT has worked with the Kentucky Lottery to triple the number of online draw games available to players, as well as provide a vast portfolio of compelling eInstant games. IGT’s cloud-based iLottery platform will offer the Lottery more flexibility, increased analytics and a full suite of advanced player-management features and responsible gaming tools,” said Srini Nedunuri, IGT Senior Vice President Global iLottery.
As part of the Company’s player-centric omnichannel solution OMNIA, IGT’s Aurora platform was developed to drive lottery innovation and profitability, and will provide the Kentucky Lottery with intuitive, user-friendly applications, tools, and reporting capabilities. Components of Aurora such as Performance Wizard, Retailer Wizard, and Sales Wizard will be deployed to the cloud for optimal functionality. IGT will also deliver 4000 new Retailer Pro terminals and ticket checkers, and an additional 850 GameTouch 28 lottery vending machines.
The Kentucky Lottery will also receive IGT’s upgraded iLottery system. Among many benefits included in this upgrade are added security, dynamic scalability, and a reduced time to market for system enhancements. It also facilitates faster and easier integration of data and insights as a further enrichment to the overall player experience.
