TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Computer blunders in the Kansas Lottery's Pick 3 game last week could cost international gaming giant Gtech a contract to run the state-owned casino games.
Gtech, an Italian-owned firm, manages state lottery and casino data systems for gambling jurisdictions worldwide, including Kansas. In April the firm was tentatively awarded the state's casino data systems contract.
Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten told The Kansas City Star that final contract negotiations with Gtech are now at a standstill. He said talks won't move ahead until Gtech can establish some degree of credibility.
