International Game Technology (IGT) will showcase its Cobalt 27 Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) in Canada. Through an agreement with Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation (MBLL), the region will become the first in Canada to have IGT’s Cobalt Line terminals installed.
The supplier has signed an agreement with MBLL to deliver 960 Cobalt VLTs 27. These terminals feature two 27-inch high-definition displays, an optional 24-inch topper, integrated cabinet lighting and a five-button static player panel, plus built-in USB charging ports.
They will host IGT content including Temple of Fire Cash Eruption, Big City 5’s, Five Times Pay, Power Keno and Double Double Bonus Poker. In addition, the agreement further expands IGT’s presence in Canada, where it already has a strong presence, especially with regard to trams.
Previous agreements have allowed IGT to deploy terminals elsewhere, not least under a contract signed with the Atlantic Lottery Corporation in April. However, IGT’s agreement with MBLL will see trams being deployed in Canada for the first time.
According to IGT Senior Vice President for Canada, South and Central America, David Flinn, trams have proven popular in other markets. “IGT’s Cobalt VLT has gained positive momentum in the US, Latin America and Europe, and we are very excited to build on this success in Manitoba,” said Flinn.
“The trams will feature market-tuned content, including the highly successful commercial game Temple of Fire Cash Eruption, which has been specially tailored for tram operators. These solutions allow MBLL to modernize their games with best-in-class hardware and entertain gamers with engaging themes.”
International Game Technology was a Las Vegas, United States-based gaming company that manufactured and distributed slot machines and other gaming technologies. It was acquired in 2015 by Gtech, which adopted the name IGT.
