New York-listed lottery and gaming supplier Scientific Games has expanded its partnership with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) to include its digital sports betting solution.

The agreement will see Scientific Games provide a fully upgraded suite of digital sports betting and iGaming solutions to BCLC, including player account management services for an additional 5 years through 2024.

Scientific Games already provides the lottery with its OpenPlatform player account technology and will now also supply its OpenSports sportsbook solution to the operator.

The new integration for mobile and desktop comprises the OpenBet betting engine, OpenPlatform player account technology, and OpenTrade managed trading services.

“We’ve worked closely with BCLC for years, and we’re excited to continue building momentum with them in the Canadian market,” said SG Digital group chief executive Jordan Levin. “Our gaming platforms and sportsbook solutions are a perfect fit for their large audience, and the continued trust, confidence, and innovation on both sides will drive positive growth in the industry.”

BCLC interim VP digital & enterprise services Cameron Adams added: “We’re excited to continue our relationship with Scientific Games and offer a comprehensive array of sports betting technology to our players. Scientific Games has helped power significant growth for BCLC’s PlayNow.com digital gaming site over the past several years, and this will help us to continue to grow and evolve our customer experiences into the future.”

Shares in Scientific Games Corporation (NSQ:SGMS) closed up 1.95 per cent at $23.55 per share in New York Friday.
