INTRALOT, a leading international lottery and gaming solutions provider and operator, has signed a supply contract worth $340 million with Camelot Illinois. A Camelot Global subsidiary company, Camelot Illinois took over the management of the Illinois State Lottery in 2017. The massive contract requires INTRALOT to supply a range of system solutions, as well as a complete suite of lottery products by October 2027.
As part of the contract, INTRALOT will install its clerk-operated Photon terminals along with its player-operated touchscreen terminal, WinStation 30, and ticket-checking solution, Genion, in all the lottery’s 7,500 locations starting in December 2018. The installations will be backed up by a range of related services, hardware, and software, including digital channel integration, a retailer communications network, inbound call center management, asset tracking systems, retailer financial portal and field service support.
WinStation 30 is the gaming industry’s first touchscreen-activated 30-bin dispensing machine. It comes with a high-definition monitor and other advanced features. It’s expected to give a major boost to the Illinois State Lottery and help its private manager to achieve its business goals.
Johan Donahue, chief executive officer of INTRALOT Inc., the company’s U.S. subsidiary, said his company was ecstatic at being awarded the contract. He also said the company has been successfully partnering with Camelot around the world and he expressed hope their partnership will once again prove to be the right mixture for Illinois State Lottery.
The news had a positive effect on INTRALOT shares. As soon as the announcement was made, the price of INTRALOT A.A. (ASE.INLOT) shares spiked to make a new 52-week high of €1.51 (about $1.81).
