New York-listed Scientific Games has entered into an agreement with Italian gaming operator Sisal to exclusively supply its range of Wave lottery terminals across the country.
Having provided lottery retail technology to Sisal since 1997, Scientific Games won a private, limited tender conducted by Sisal, which was recently awarded the GNTN (SuperEnalotto) concession for another 9 years.
Sisal plans to install the Wave retail terminals throughout Italy in 2020, which will become one of the largest lottery terminal point-of-sale networks in the world.
"The unique combination of Scientific Games' laser sharp operations team and their innovative product portfolio helped Sisal achieve the best technical score possible on the license tender,” said Sisal managing director of lottery Marco Caccavale. “We are extremely proud to be the operator of the GNTN concession in Italy for the next nine years."
Scientific Games chief executive officer for lottery Pat McHugh commented: "This new agreement with Sisal demonstrates the value of our award-winning retail products in one of the largest and most competitive markets.
“We are honored they chose us as their business partner. It also confirms that Scientific Games is on the right path to execute our global strategy to serve our gaming and lottery customers across multiple gaming verticals."
