Bringing the power of INTELLIGEN™ to the retail site.
i-LINK™ is the industry’s first and only GSA-certified lottery prize validation terminal and retailer site controller. It’s the essential link between the INTELLIGEN™ central system, its Value-Added Modules, and VLTs that gives you direct and secure control over your distributed gaming operation.
i-LINK is highly configurable to match the requirement of the job. As a retailer terminal, it’s a VLT status and performance monitor, and a ticket validator with cash management and reporting functions. As a site controller, it’s a powerful local VLT host capable of functioning as a local G2S game download host, a web server and jackpot display driver. Even if communication with the central system is disrupted, all VLTs on-site will continue to operate without interruption.
