Scientific Games’ UK division SG Gaming has agreed a new five-year supply deal with British high street arcade operator Praesepe.
The new deal sees the existing partnership with Praesepe, which now spans over a decade, expanded with over 700 new gaming products to be supplied across the operator’s Cashino and Beacon Bingo brands.
The launch will ultimately see over 1,800 SG Gaming terminals now rolled out across the operator’s estate, including 581 Equinox 2.7 terminals and an expanded suite of T8 terminals. The roll-out is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter.
“The introduction of the new Equinox terminals is an exciting development for Praesepe and will help us elevate our gaming offer to the next level,” said Praesepe head of product Andy Tipple. “We’re confident that players across our Cashino and Beacon Bingo venues will be thrilled by these new additions and the entertaining games available.
“Scientific Games’ continued hardware innovation and access to an unrivalled content offering has always impressed and proved popular with our players. As well as the new Equinox terminal, we are thrilled to expand on the number of ever popular T8 terminals across the business and look forward to working closer with the SG Gaming team, as we develop our retail gaming experience.”
SG Gaming UK group commercial director Simon Johnson commented: “We’re delighted that Praesepe has chosen to strengthen this partnership further with the addition of our premium products and popular terminals across its estate. The agreement enables both Praesepe and its customers to benefit from our leading gaming content and the immersive gaming experience that our Equinox terminals provide.”
Johnson said that the supplier believed that the comprehensive deal would help to drive cashbox performance and provide Praesepe with an innovative new set of tools to offer their players.
“Backed by the wider Scientific Games Group, SG Gaming continues to invest and grow its product and technology offer across the Arcade sector,” he continued. “This significant deal will enable both our teams to continue to work closely together to ensure that Praesepe has the best and most engaging gaming offer throughout their arcade venues across the country.”
