IGT Signs Six-Year Contract with Singapore Pools; Street Says Buy

Speculative gaming company International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT), also known as IGT, recently revealed that it has signed a six-year contract with a state-owned lottery subsidiary company, Singapore Pools (Private) Limited.

Following the news, shares of the company remained static to close at $25.52 in Monday’s extended trading session.

Details of the Deal

Under the terms of the contract, IGT will provide its central lottery system, Aurora, to the customers of Singapore Pools. The company will also provide services of its Aurora Navigator, Data Connector and Aurora Anywhere platforms.

While Aurora Navigator can be used to view, manage and administer all lottery applications and back-office functions, the Data Connector ensures efficient data integration and analytics. The Aurora Anywhere is a secure gateway that allows external applications to connect to the core lottery system, which creates opportunities for expanded game play.

IGT’s service-oriented Aurora incorporates a suite of flexible solutions designed to manage, transform and further grow the Lottery’s business.”
