Scientific Games acquires Karma Gaming interactive titles
Scientific Games has purchased Karma Gaming’s entire portfolio of interactive games.
Under the agreement, which was completed in June of this year, Scientific Games now owns a range of titles that includes second-chance and eInstant games.
In a statement released this week confirming the deal, Scientific Games said that the acquisition will boost both its interactive strategy and product roadmap, as well as support its aim to “lead lotteries into the digital future”.
Jim Kennedy, executive vice-president and group chief executive of lottery at Scientific Games, said: “Through continuous R&D, the creation of more innovative games and promotions by our Digital Content Studio, and strategic acquisitions such as this portfolio of games from Karma Gaming, Scientific Games continues to expand our interactive business with products that help our lottery customers provide unique solutions to lottery players that help them to move seamlessly between the retail and mobile/online lottery entertainment experience.
“As a trusted business partner, we understand the unique regulatory challenges lotteries have when it comes to mobile and internet offerings, and we know that lotteries have constraints on delivering innovative games and promotions that can continue to entertain and engage their players.
“By providing consumer analytics, creative interactive games and promotions, loyalty programs, mobile apps and secure technology for the sale of eInstants and other games online, Scientific Games remains committed to helping lotteries continue to evolve.”
