This week Czech betting firm Sazka announced that they've extended their lottery partnership with IGT, continuing a relationship that has been in full bloom since 1993.
The deal will see Sazka modernizing their lottery system to take on IGT's new Aurora platform. This will include a variety of different backend tools, and IGT will be replacing 8,000 lottery terminals throughout the country. Maintenance and consulting services are also included, as IGT will provide help to the lottery in marketing their games.
Commenting on the deal Sazka CEO Robert Chvatal said, "Sazka has been working with IGT in the Czech Republic for the past 27 years, and building on this relationship is a positive reflection of Sazka Group's partnership with IGT in multiple European markets.
"We're looking forward to leveraging these new solutions for enhanced growth, ensuring that we continue to generate funds for youth sport in the Czech Republic."
IGT's Declan Harkin added: "Our Aurora platform's exceptional performance and reliability will ensure long-term innovation and growth for the Lottery and drive player engagement, increasing revenues to good causes and ultimately benefiting the people of the Czech Republic."
