Swedish gaming operator Svenska Spel and betting technology group International Game Technology announced this week that they've extended their working relationship for at least another three years.
The agreement will see IGT continuing to provide video lottery services to the operator, including the usage of 4,000 video lottery terminals, IGTPay cashless technology equipment, the use of the Intelligen gaming system, and the rights to a variety of games. The deal will run through at least January 2027, although an extension before that time is likely, given that the two have worked together since 1996.
Regarding the agreement, Svenska Spel's Ola Enquist said, "Given the critical role that IGT has played in Svenska Spel's continued growth and modernisation, we are pleased to guarantee our partnership for an additional three years.
"IGT provides the ideal content, technology and services that enable Svenska Spel to responsibly grow our enterprise and engage our guests with next-generation experiences and future-forward innovation."
IGT SVP of Gaming in EMEA Mark MacCombie also commented, adding: "IGT and Svenska Spel have a proven approach for serving the Swedish market and we look forward to building upon that foundation and helping Svenska Spel achieve its growth targets for three additional years.
"Svenska Spel's focus on superior player experiences and their willingness to adopt new technologies complement IGT's leadership in innovation.
"This is evidenced by more than a decade of shared success and deployments such as Svenska Spel's IGTPay-powered cashless solution."
