"We are pleased to extend our relationship with the IGT Cloud," said Madis Jääger, CEO at Olympic Entertainment Group. "Their cloud-based environment has provided us with a versatile way to drive even more entertaining game experiences to our players. We believe that IGT systems are critical to success of our casino operations."

Among the deciding factors relating to Olympic's desire to expand the Cloud system to multiple sites, was the ability to utilize in-depth analytics to make the best decisions for their gaming floor based upon user preference data, in addition to having direct access to IGT's expansive 400-plus title game theme library. The Cloud has also afforded Olympic with a way to differentiate the Cloud-connected casinos from other properties in the area since the technology enables for multiple games to be loaded onto a single cabinet.

"The confidence that Olympic has shown in the IGT Cloud speaks to the promise that we have made as a company to provide immense value to our casino customers," said Chris Satchell, IGT Chief Technology Officer. "The extended partnership between Olympic and IGT will allow them to continue to grow their brand, and create new opportunities for even more thrilling and engaging entertainment to the players on their casino floors."

Following the current trend of casinos offering players multiple games per cabinet, IGT is allowing Olympic to stay ahead of the curve by providing their players with a selection of up to nine games, the variety being something that has not been lost on their players who have remarked their delight in finding several of their favorite IGT games available on a single machine. Looking ahead, Olympic also has plans to expand the use of the IGT Cloud to their properties in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania over the next twelve months.
