International Game Technology said it had among the best quarterly results in its history in the three months to end March, fuelled mainly by growth in global lottery.

Revenue gained 25 percent year-on-year to $1 billion. Income from continuing operations was $138 million and adjusted EBITDA of $450 million.

“We delivered some of our strongest profit results ever during the first quarter, fueled by robust player demand and significant, structural cost savings,” said Marco Sala, CEO of IGT. “Our Global Lottery segment achieved record same-store sales levels on impressive increases around the world. The Global Gaming segment is demonstrating swift, progressive recovery, including accelerated momentum for Digital & Betting activities. We expect to return to 2019 levels for key financial metrics this year.”
