New York-listed gaming and lottery supplier Scientific Games has secured a four-year extension to its instant games contract with Washington’s Lottery.

The extension sees Scientific Games continue to design and produce instant games for the lottery through March 2024, as well as providing a new mobile app and player loyalty program to the lottery.

Scientific Games has provided the lottery with instant games since its launch in 1982 and currently serves as its primary supplier of instant games, including Lucky for Life and licensed branded games such as SLINGO and LOTERIA.

"Our team has worked hard with Scientific Games to drive responsible year-over-year growth in our instant game products, which in turn has generated more profits to support education and other state programs in Washington," said Gaylene Gray, instant product manager for Washington’s Lottery. "We look forward to working with Scientific Games for four more years to offer our players new conveniences with a new mobile app, and to further grow their loyalty through entertaining promotions and second-chance play."

John Schultz, Scientific Games senior vice president, instant products, added: "It has been a pleasure to serve this outstanding lottery in the northwest US. We are honored to have our instant games contract extended so we can continue working together to drive maximum profits to benefit education and other important programs in communities throughout the great state of Washington."
