GTECH AWARDED FULL FACILITIES MANAGEMENT CONTRACT FOR THE NATIONAL LOTTERY OF IRELAND

 WEST GREENWICH, R.I., March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- GTECH (NYSE: GTK) announced today that the company has signed a contract to supply, operate and maintain a lottery system for Ireland's An Post National Lottery Company (NLC). The award was made based on a competitive procurement process.
 Included in the multiple-year contract is a provision for GTECH to upgrade the existing 1,900 on-line terminals and install up to 700 additional terminals to meet the expansion of the lottery planned by the NLC. GTECH has been a supplier of an on-line lottery system and services to the NLC under a contract awarded in 1988 that was due to expire in April of 1993.
 The contract is based of a full facilities management agreement in which GTECH will be responsible for providing comprehensive lottery products and services. The agreement provides for the installation of new equipment, including central systems, retailer terminals and an Instant Ticket Support System (ITSS) for more than 3,000 retailers, of which 1,900 are currently on-line.
 In commenting on the announcement, GTECH Chairman, Victor Markowicz, said, "We are very pleased to be able to continue our relationship with An Post National Lottery Company. This contract is indicative of an important industry trend -- lotteries asking suppliers for a total package of products and services. We look forward to sharing our experience and expertise in service and management support areas as yet unexplored by NLC."
 GTECH currently employs approximately 40 people in Ireland and expects to hire additional employees to meet the expanded requirements of the new contract.
 GTECH Corporation designs, produces, implements, operates and services computerized networks for government-sponsored or licensed lotteries on five continents. In addition, GTECH Corporation provides a wide variety of instant ticket support services. GTECH currently supplies and/or operates lottery systems for 25 U.S. customers and 34 jurisdictions outside the United States. GTECH Corporation employs approximately 1,000 people in Rhode Island and more than 3,000 worldwide.
