International Game Technology has confirmed a seven-year contract extension with Supreme Ventures Limited to continue providing lottery technology, content, and ongoing services and support in Jamaica.
The extended collaboration will see IGT maintain its provisions of lottery products, games and services, and, as part of a facilities management integrated services arrangement, will continue to operate and maintain its central system, terminals, and communications network.
Furthermore, it also includes data centre operations and a 24/7 customer contact centre, game design and development, data analytics, strategic planning, and sales support.
“This latest extension demonstrates IGT’s and SVL’s mutual commitment to creating value for SVL’s stakeholders through innovative gaming solutions, while emphasising SVL’s confidence in the performance and stability of IGT’s offering,” noted Jay Gendron, IGT chief operating officer of lottery.
“As SVL continues to offer best-in-class lottery and gaming products, this extension will sustain business momentum and player engagement, make an impact on small businesses through SVL’s expanding retailer network, and ultimately benefit all Jamaicans.”
With the previous contract period scheduled to end in January 2026, this extension takes the link-up through to 2033 and enables IGT to continue strategically supporting SVL for the next 12 years.
In addition to its lottery contract with the group, IGT also provides mobile phone top-up services as well as operational support for its VLT program, including field services, installations for new retailers, and marketing and sales support.
“Over the past 19 years, IGT’s commitment to our growth and provision of superior service has directly influenced SVL’s ongoing success,” added Gary Peart, SVL executive chairman.
“This agreement represents the next chapter in our winning partnership, and further supports SVL for expansion, reinforcing our market leadership position and our place as an integral part of the fabric of Jamaica.
“SVL is an important contributor to nation-building on multiple fronts and growing business for all stakeholders. Our long-term strategic relationship with IGT is a key enabler for our growth platform and delivering our vision for SVL in the region.”
IGT, previously as GTECH, has been the lottery technology and services provider to SVL since it began selling online games in 2001.
