Illinois-based American Vending Sales has renewed its exclusive distribution agreement with leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology, under which AVS will sell IGT games in the Illinois VLT market for another three years.

“We’re excited to continue our success in the highly competitive Illinois bar and tavern market,” said Eric Tom, IGT’s executive vice president of global sales. “IGT’s best-in-class games and content combined with AVS’ excellent customer service creates the winning formula of quality, performance and ROI that makes us the top choice for Illinois terminal operators.”
