IGT Extends Barbados Lottery Deal


IGT Global Services, part of the IGT Group, has inked a new 10-year deal with the lottery on the Caribbean island of Barbados.

The IGT Private Management Lottery has been providing support to the Barbados lottery since it was launched in 2005. Its current deal runs until 2023, but under the new arrangement, they will continue to provide lottery services until 2033, and there is also a clause in the contract that leaves open the possibility of adding two more periods of five years to the current agreement.

Under the terms of the contract, IGT will roll out a range of new lottery retail terminals as well as updated ticket checkers, and they are also set to bring the first self-service lottery vending machines to the Barbados lottery sector. They will also provide additional equipment to support social gaming, including a variety of numbers games that are usually played in bars and restaurants.

The partnership between IGT and the Barbados Lottery has benefited a number of good causes on the island, including the Barbados Cricket Association, the Barbados Turf Club, the Barbados Olympic Association and the National Sports Council.

Successful Lottery

Speaking about the arrangement with IGT, some of the representatives of the organisations that have been helped by the lottery put out a joint statement welcoming the extended contract:

“Our long-term partnership with IGT has proven to be the major driving force behind our ability to consistently contribute to the development of sports, youth, and cultural programs in Barbados.”

And, commenting on the extension, the COO of IGT’s International Lottery division, Declan Harkin, said that the deal reflected confidence in IGT’s abilities to support a successful lottery:

“We look forward to enhancing this robust program through new and existing solutions that engage players, drive growth, and generate funds for good causes that ultimately benefit all Barbadians.”
