International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE:IGT) today announced that it has upgraded Poland’s national lottery operator Totalizator Sportowy’s iLottery platform and deployed all of its components to the cloud. This go-live marks the first time that IGT has launched a customer’s comprehensive iLottery platform to the cloud and Totalizator Sportowy is the first European lottery to have its end-to-end iLottery system on the cloud.
IGT upgraded Totalizator Sportowy’s iLottery system to its latest high-performing player account management system, IGT Command, and deployed it on the cloud. IGT’s player account management system is the powerhouse engine for all iLottery player-centric functions and game enablement. The complete lineup of products enables the Lottery to oversee all areas of player engagement, anticipate new customer and technological trends, strategically adapt the operation to new opportunities, leverage convenient cashless options, and provide advanced responsible gaming features. IGT had previously launched its remote gaming server to the cloud as well, which enables Totalizator Sportowy to deliver a steady stream of premium content to its players.
“Totalizator Sportowy has partnered with IGT to improve our lottery technology and systems and provide our players with responsible and engaging lottery solutions,” said Olgierd Cieślik, Totalizator Sportowy CEO. “Deploying our iLottery platform in the cloud offers us scalability and helps us reduce time to market for system enhancements. Totalizator Sportowy is always eager to introduce innovation, and in this case, we are the first lottery in Europe to have an end-to-end cloud-based iLottery technology.”
“Moving Totalizator Sportowy’s iLottery central system to the cloud marks an exciting first-time, end-to-end cloud deployment for IGT,” said Srini Nedunuri, IGT Senior Vice President, iLottery. “We recognize the many benefits of cloud technology and know that it facilitates easier integration of data and insights, faster upgradeability and scalability, and improves overall efficiency. These benefits will ultimately deliver a more dynamic experience for Poland’s iLottery players.”
