A Continued Partnership for Innovation

IGT Global Solutions Corporation, a subsidiary of the esteemed International Game Technology PLC (IGT), has solidified its relationship with UAB Perlas Network (“Perlas”) through a significant contract extension lasting until 2035. This extension not only reaffirms the longstanding partnership between the two entities but also sets the stage for substantial technological advancements in Lithuania’s lottery infrastructure.

Technological Advancements on the Horizon

As part of the renewed agreement, IGT is set to enhance Perlas’ central retail system with cutting-edge software and user interfaces. Mindaugas Marcinkevičius, CEO of UAB Perlas Network, expressed enthusiasm about the upgrade, stating, “Upgrading Perlas’ central system with IGT technology will help us optimize and elevate the country’s most popular and exciting lottery games. We look forward to implementing IGT’s upgrades and are pleased to continue this successful relationship for another 12 years.”

Maximizing Efficiency and Profitability

IGT’s technological enhancements aim to introduce a new level of efficiency and profitability to Lithuania’s lottery operations. Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer Global Lottery, highlighted the impact of the technology, saying, “The technology enhancements being provided to Perlas are backed by IGT’s decades of lottery industry leadership and experience. This upgraded technology will introduce an administration portal that will enable the Lottery to view and manage all applications and back-office functions, helping to improve efficiencies and maximize profitability.”

The partnership between IGT and the Lithuanian Lottery dates back to 1994, showcasing a long-standing collaboration that has contributed significantly to the lottery’s growth and success.

The recent announcement in 2023 about IGT’s contract with Euloto UAB, a dependent company of Perlas, to deploy a cloud-based remote game server and introduce new eInstant games annually further exemplifies the evolving nature of this partnership.

Looking Forward

This contract extension between IGT and UAB Perlas Network is more than just a continuation of a business relationship; it’s a commitment to leveraging technology to enhance the lottery experience for players in Lithuania. With IGT’s innovative solutions and Perlas’ operational expertise, the future of Lithuania’s lottery games looks both exciting and promising.
