Scientific Games pens long-term extension with Latvian national lottery
Under the agreement, Scientific Games will provide its latest gaming systems technology to Latvijas Loto, with the updated systems scheduled to go live in spring 2023.
Latvijas Loto said this would help it meet its responsible growth objectives of a 50% increase in retailer points-of-sale, with Scientific Games to supply its Aegis open architecture enterprise gaming system and WaveX retailer point-of-sale terminals, as well as support and maintenance services.
The new deal extends a working partnership that stretches back more than 20 years, while Scientific Games also provides the lottery with instant games.
“After thorough evaluation, Latvijas Loto chose to modernise our systems technology with Scientific Games so that we may continue to deliver outstanding player experiences and meet our growth potential,” Latvijas Loto chairman Edgars Lediņš said.
“We look forward to the efficiencies this technology advancement will bring to our entire operation, and our retailers will be delighted with the new terminals and support they will receive.”
Scientific Games chief executive Pat McHugh added: “Scientific Games is honoured by the longstanding partnership and trust Latvijas Loto has placed in our company, our people and our products to support its mission of responsibly maximising growth over the next 10 years.
“Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers’ growth plans has positioned Scientific Games as the lottery industry’s leading systems technology provider in Europe and the fastest growing in the US.”
