IGT Signs Licensing Agreement with Maryland Lottery





International Game Technology PLC announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency (Maryland Lottery) for IGT’s patented Cash Pop draw-based game. The Maryland Lottery expects to launch Cash Pop in May 2024 with four daily drawings at multiple price points from $1 to $10.

“The Maryland Lottery is always excited to launch new draw games, and IGT’s Cash Pop will be a novel addition to our portfolio. We’re confident that the 1 in 15 odds of winning a single ‘Pop’ will resonate with our existing players, and the gameplay is easy to understand, which will help us engage a new generation of players,” Kate Airey, Director of Product Development for the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, said.

“This licensing agreement between the Maryland Lottery and IGT for our proprietary Cash Pop game builds upon our strong momentum expanding the reach of this exciting game. Cash Pop has yielded significant sales in jurisdictions where it’s available, and we believe it will enhance Maryland Lottery’s draw game portfolio with its simplistic and flexible gameplay features that players readily embrace,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Lottery.

Cash Pop gives players the ability to strategize their wager and create their own personalized experience every time they play, which has proven to be highly engaging among players where Cash Pop is offered. Players wager one or more numbers from 1 to 15 and then select a wager amount of $1, $2, $5, or $10 per number. The player can also choose how many consecutive games to play. When the wager is placed, the terminal randomly assigns the value of the prize to be won if the number is matched, which produces a “two games in one” aspect to the game. Lotteries can also choose the frequency of the draws according to their needs, but each draw will be a single number from 1 to 15. Cash Pop has proven to be a solid sales producer with average weekly per capita sales of $0.10 across the US in the first quarter of 2023.
