New York-listed gaming supplier Scientific Games has deployed its casino management system at the first of 28 casinos in the Canadian province of Alberta.

The deployment follows an agreement signed with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) in November 2015 to replace a competitor’s casino management system in all 28 of the independently-operated casinos in the Canadian province.

The Grand Villa Casino Edmonton became the first venue to successfully install the supplier’s system late last year, with Scientific Games taking a phased approach to eventually manage all of the 14,000 slots throughout Alberta.

"Given the unique requirements of the AGLC and its various casino properties, we needed a system that could support the AGLC's multiple-service provider environment," said Niaz Nejad, chief operating officer of the AGLC. "We believe that Scientific Games' elite casino management system will provide us with the necessary support, and we look forward to seeing results."

Scientific Games senior vice president of gaming systems, Cath Burns, added: “We are proud that our systems solutions were able to accommodate the particular requirements the AGLC had in administering the gaming aspect of its 28 casinos, while allowing the casino operators to maintain a certain level of autonomy in managing their individual properties.

"We are excited to have our casino management system implemented throughout the Alberta province and we look forward to our continued partnership with the AGLC."

Shares in Scientific Games Corporation (NSQ:SGMS) closed in New York Wednesday up 1.29 per cent at $54.80 per share, having set a new 52-week high of $55.50 per share earlier in the day.
