Video lottery agreement disputed in lawsuit

By Whitney Brakken | Dec 20, 2013

PRINCETON - A licensed operator of video lottery terminals is seeking a declaration their contract automatically renewed.

Randomworld Ltd. filed a lawsuit Nov. 8 in the Circuit Court of Mercer County against Opportunity Knocks Inc., seeking a declaration its two Video Lottery Agreements with the defendant automatically renewed according to the contract terms.

The complaint states on Nov. 10, 2003, Opportunity Knocks entered into the two agreements with Randomworld for video lottery terminals. The agreement states the contract term is for 10 years and automatically renews for a successive 10-year period, absent written notice provided at least 30 days before the expiration, according to the complaint.

The plaintiff says on Nov. 6, 2013, the defendant attempted to cancel the contract, but it did not comply with the terms because there was not 30 days notice and therefore the contract should be renewed under the terms.

Randomworld is seeking an order declaring the contract automatically renewed for another 10-year period. The plaintiff is being represented in the case by attorneys Russell D. Jessee and Katherine M. Mullins of Steptoe & Johnson PLLC.
