New York-listed gaming supplier Scientific Games has agreed a deal to enhance Tabcorp’s Keno offering in Australia.

The Keno upgrade will see Scientific Games supply 750 of its advanced WAVE retail terminals to Tabcorp’s pubs and clubs across Australia.

“Scientific Games has proven to be a valuable business partner to Tabcorp,” said Tabcorp general manager of Keno Terry Fowler. “They have helped us develop and enhance our Keno business in Australia.

“We appreciate Scientific Games’ global gaming expertise, as well as their technology innovation and commitment to responsible gaming. Our Keno players will enjoy a more modern experience with the new WAVE terminals.”

Keno can be played approximately every three minutes, with players matching their numbers to the numbers drawn for a chance to win over AUD$1m, from as little as $1 per game.

Including this latest deal, Scientific Games will have deployed nearly 80,000 WAVE terminals in lottery and gaming retail locations around the world.

“With the upgrade to these advanced retail terminals for Keno players, Tabcorp is again demonstrating their commitment to enhancing the player experience,” said Michael Conforti, president of global strategic accounts for Scientific Games.
