North America Lottery Supplier
As Scientific Games’ lottery team prepares for life as an independent entity from its colleagues in sports betting and gaming, it can rest easy in the knowledge that it has firm foundations in place.
Those foundations go back to the company’s foundation in 1973 but it has hardly rested on its laurels and in 2021 it has put in place the next building blocks for growth.
In 2021 it won two new 10-year contracts with the Pennsylvania Lottery to provide instant games and systems technology. The continuation of the Pennsylvania partnership is no surprise given SciGames’ role in helping the iLottery programme to over $2bn in sales in less than three years.
It also extended its contract with New Hampshire and upgraded it to what it calls an “enhanced partnership”. It now has 14 of these partnerships throughout the US. And the supplier is doing great things in Canada too. The addition of iLottery and iCasino at Atlantic Lottery powered it to 50 per cent year-on-year growth.
Brookfield Business Partners has just bought an extremely valuable asset indeed.
