New York-listed Scientific Games has been selected to provide a range of lottery services for the Turkish national lottery Milli Piyango.
The exclusive ten-year deal will see Scientific Games supply lottery instant games, 15,000 WAVE retail terminals and supporting systems to Sisal-Şans, the joint venture between Italian gaming operator Sisal and Turkish conglomerate Demirören Group which secured the Milli Piyango concession last month.
“On behalf of all of our teams at Scientific Games, from game creation to innovative and secure products, we are honored by the trust placed in us to meet their growth objectives as the exclusive supplier of retail terminals, a portfolio of instant games and supporting systems for the Turkey national lottery,” said Pat McHugh, Scientific Games executive vice president and group chief executive, Lottery.
The rollout of the new products is planned for 2020.
“We have a trusted, 25-year relationship with Scientific Games and selected their products to support as the best possible option for our strategic and high-profile project in Turkey,” commented Marco Caccavale, managing director of the lottery business unit of Sisal.
Şans Dijital board member Sinan Oktay added: “The success of gaming entertainment in any market is led by exciting game content, innovative products and technology.
“We selected Scientific Games to support our national lottery operation because we are convinced they are the only company capable of helping us achieve our significant growth objectives in the market, which rely in large part on developing retail engagement and a very substantial instant ticket business.”
Scientific Games and its Turkish partner, Şans Dijital, were also recently selected to exclusively deliver and operate sports betting and managed trading in Turkey.
