US – Scientific extends Minnesota deal

By - 18 August 2014

Scientific Games has signed an extension of its contract with the Minnesota Lottery to continue as a provider of instant lottery games.

Under the agreement, the Company will continue as the secondary instant game provider to the Minnesota Lottery for two additional years beginning July 1, 2014.

“The extension of our instant games contract with Scientific Games demonstrates that the games they design and produce have served as a great asset to our instant game portfolio,” said Ed Van Petten, Director of the Minnesota Lottery. “From licensed brands to unique play action and prize structures, these games are among the favourites with players in Minnesota. We have worked with Scientific Games since 1990 to create games that provide entertainment, value and engagement with the Lottery’s brand. We are delighted to continue our collaboration to drive increased returns to the state’s general fund and the environment.”

In addition to traditional instant games, Scientific Games also provides the Minnesota Lottery with its Sciplay ecommerce solution, which facilitates the sale of both draw games and eInstant games via web and mobile channels. In February 2013, Scientific Games and the Minnesota Lottery launched eScratch games, representing the first-ever deployment of eInstant games by a US lottery.

John Schulz, Senior Vice President, Instant Products for Scientific Games said: “Our work with the Minnesota Lottery has been a great example of innovating through customer solutions. We look forward to providing the Minnesota Lottery and its players with even more creative, engaging and relevant instant games over the next two years through this contract extension.” In fiscal year 2013, the Minnesota Lottery generated more than $553m in total retail sales, which included nearly $360 million in instant game products.
