Totalizator Sportowy Awards New Technology Tender to Consortium Headed by IGT
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Totalizator Sportowy, Poland’s gambling operator, has awarded a new tender to the consortium headed by existing partner International Game Technology (IGT).

The contract will see IGT provide Totalizator Sportowy with a revamped central system for operating draw-based games, as well as an interactive platform and business support software, replacing the operator’s current systems.

It replaces an existing agreement – also with IGT and ending in November this year – with the new contract running until December 2028, and comes with an option for a three-year extension.

“The [current] contract, which is valid until the end of November 2021, is basically not comparable to the new one that has just been signed. Everything has changed; the cooperation model, which now gives [Totalizator Sportowy] greater control, the commercial agreement with the supplier, and the conditions for the quality of services,” Olgierd Cieślik, Totalizator Sportowy management board president, said.

“We will be provided with more services and software, and at the same time we will be given more freedom in our daily operations,” Cieślik added.

“We are glad that IGT will have the opportunity to provide the latest technological and operational solutions to support Polish players and lottery outlets. On one hand, it will be a continuation of our long-term cooperation with Totalizator Sportowy, on the other, however, each implementation means new challenges, completely different hardware and organisational requirements, which can only be met with many years of experience in the lottery market and the extensive R&D centre that we have here in Poland,” Wojciech Włodarczyk, chief executive of IGT Poland, said.

“By employing nearly 300 people in Warsaw, we are able to delegate our best and most experienced specialists to this project, which will guarantee a painless implementation process,” Wojciech Włodarczyk added.
