Scientific Games has secured another lottery contract, this time in Germany.
Following recent renewals in Iowa and Connecticut, the supplier has now been awarded a new, three-year contract to provide instant games to existing partner LOTTO Thüringen in central Germany.
Scientific Games won the contract after a “competitive procurement process,” with its games planned to launch in 2021 and there being an option of extending the contract by a further year.
Jochen Staschewski, LOTTO Thüringen CEO, said: «We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Scientific Games and the sustainable growth of instant game revenues in Thuringia.
“This is one of the few lottery markets in Germany that continues to grow.
«Our growth is largely driven by instant products; therefore, we plan to further develop our portfolio of instant games sold at retail as well as offer our players digital instant games to enjoy at home and via mobile.»
John Schulz, Scientific Games senior VP of instant products, said: «We have offered LOTTO Thüringen instant game products with value adds that have proven ability to responsibly increase revenue for our lottery customers.”
