Intralot USA seeking new business in multiple states before year-end

Gaming and lottery provider Intralot USA is waiting on bids that have been lodged in four US states as it seeks to expand its business in the country before the end of this year.

John Pittman, Intralot USA’s vice-president of marketing, told TotallyGaming.com that the company is also monitoring possible Requests for Proposals (RFPs) in five other US states in the coming months.

“We are actively seeking new business opportunities,” Pittman said.

“We have submitted online bids in Florida, Missouri, Montana, and Washington State and are awaiting the award announcements from each of those Lotteries.

“We also have potential opportunities in Wisconsin and Kentucky who both have RFP responses due soon. In addition, we may see additional RFPs being issued by Maryland, Massachusetts, and Arizona before year-end.”

Earlier this month, Intralot struck a deal with the Wyoming Lottery after announcing lottery partnerships in Ohio and Washington, D.C. over the summer.

“We currently have 13 online contracts in the US and our lottery partners are some of the fastest growing lotteries in the country,” Pittman added.

“Our vision is to help them to continue this trend by providing new games with great content, new distribution channels and the best equipment and services in the industry.”

However, Pittman is keen to stress that Intralot USA will retain its focus on existing customers as it looks to expand, with “very good” interest in the company’s TAPP IT! interactive games that are offered through the Multi-Purpose Next Generation (MPNG) terminals.

“First and foremost, we are focusing on the continued success of our current Lottery partners with the introduction of new games, new game content and other marketing activities designed to increase their contributions to the good causes they support,” he added.

“We are currently ramping up the MPNG project in Ohio to go live in the next few weeks.

“In addition, we recently won a contract in our home state with the Georgia Lottery to provide a Central Monitoring System that will cover somewhere around 27,000 Coin Operated Amusement Machines in the state.

“Both are very large projects and we look forward to their respective implementations.”
