It was as recent as June when Lottomatica Group announced its subsidiary Spielo International had signed an agreement to provide 5,500 prodiGi Vu Video Lottery Terminals to the Société des loteries vidéo du Québec (SLVQ), a subsidiary of Loto- Quebec.
It didn’t take long for the company to establish its presence in the rest of Canada.
Following a competitive procurement process, Lottomatica Group subsidiary Spielo International Canada ULC has won a five-year contract to provide its video lottery terminal (VLT) central system to the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC), the governing body that licenses and regulates all gaming, as well as supplying and managing all electronic gaming equipment in the Canadian Province of Alberta.
Under the terms of the agreement which runs for five years and includes the potential for five one-year extensions, Spielo will provide its INTELLIGEN central system to monitor approximately 6,000 VLTs for the AGLC by late 2011 and be deployed by mid-2012.
Spielo president and CEO Victor Duarte said in the press release, “Spielo is pleased to provide its state-of-the-art INTELLIGEN VLT central system to AGLC, a valued customer since 2003…INTELLIGEN was developed to respond to the unique needs of distributed VLT customers, and with its open-standard interfaces, it will enable AGLC to manage its gaming program efficiently and effectively today, and in the years to come.”
