Under the agreement, Scientific Games will provide the lottery with instant games, lottery systems and retail technology. It will also supply a draw-based game system for the launch of the country’s first electronic lottery draws.
The agreement also extends to business intelligence software and an instant game management system, designed to streamline game inventory control and logistics.
The extension continues a partnership that has lasted for more than 20 years.
“We are very pleased to extend our excellent relationship with Scientific Games through an instant game contract that includes new technology and enables us to launch a new mode of instant and draw-based lottery games for the enjoyment of our players, and ultimately generate more funds to support our causes in Ecuador,” Lotería Nacional de Ecuador general manager Jorge Medina said.
Scientific Games’ president of Americas and global instant products John Schulz added: “We are honoured to expand our 20-year relationship with Lotería Nacional de Ecuador with our world-leading instant game services, and by launching electronic draw games for the very first time in Ecuador.
“Drawing upon our global experience with national lotteries, our goal is to support the Lottery’s retailer network expansion with our patented technologies to drive more profits for Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil’s social work.”
