New York-listed lottery and gaming supplier Scientific Games has been awarded a new contract to provide German state lottery Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz with instant win games and related services.
The new five-year contract sees Scientific Games continue to supply the lottery with instant win products and its Cooperative Services Programme (CSP) for instant game management, extending a relationship that dates back 30 years.
Since launching a decade ago, the CSP has helped grow Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz's instant product sales by almost 382 per cent. Originally launched for the New York Lottery in 1985, CSP allows lottery operators to outsource a range of operational, administrative, marketing and logistical functions relating to instant win games to Scientific Games.
"Scientific Games has collaborated with Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz on a full category management approach to marketing their instant games, and we are honored to have their trust in our partnership and continue our great work together for another five years," Scientific Games senior vice president of instant products, John Schulz, said.
Alongside the instant win products, Scientific Games has provided the lottery with its central gaming system, retailer terminals and sports betting software under separate contracts.
"We are pleased that we were able to prevail in the Europe-wide tender and Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz once again chose Scientific Games as their instant games partner due to our local resources and knowhow, logistics infrastructure in close proximity to the Lottery's premises and retail network, as well as our more than four decades of experience with instant games," Scientific Games managing director for Germany, Matthias Müller, added.
Shares in Scientific Games Corporation (NSQ:SGMS) closed down 2.82 per cent at $44.80 per share in New York Tuesday.
