Company's new camera-based lottery terminal will be deployed with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa
LONDON, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT) ("IGT") announced today that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed an agreement with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa ("SCML") to debut IGT's innovative Retailer Vue™ lottery terminal in Portugal, following a competitive procurement. The delivery of up to 7,200 camera-based terminals is expected to be completed in 2023.
IGT's Retailer Vue lottery terminal has a built-in 13.3 megapixel camera that can read playslips, winning tickets, identification cards and mobile devices, freeing up retail counter space by eliminating the need for additional hardware and cables. Modernizing the retail lottery space, the Retailer Vue reduces the barrier between a player and clerk with an open design allowing for player and retailer interaction and enabling transparent, contactless transactions.
"In today's ever-evolving lottery landscape, it is important that IGT provides SCML with high-performing solutions to meet present and future market needs," said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery. "IGT's Retailer Vue combines convenience and transparency with key features designed to increase productivity and modernize the lottery retail experience for SCML. We look forward to our continued partnership with SCML and the world debut of our new terminal which will benefit the Lottery, its retailers and players while driving maximum sales growth and contributions toward good causes."
IGT's Retailer Vue terminal is compatible with in-store advertising displays allowing the Lottery to promote its products and jackpots at the point of sale. Additionally, retailers will benefit from the Retailer Vue's intuitive touchscreen interface and its ability to complete fast and efficient sales transactions. The Retailer Vue also enables players to interact directly with the terminal and with its ability to read printed and digital barcodes, which enhances player confidence and transparency with each sale.
