Scientific Games Seals a 10-Year Deal With Kansas Lottery
Scientific Games has announced the signing of the latest partnership deal with the government-owned Kansas Lottery.
The new ten-year deal, which comes into effect in July next year, will see Scientific Games supply its lottery gaming systems, products and other related services, such as marketing, to the Topeka-headquartered company. The main goal of the new partnership is to maximise the profits and modernize the operation.
Kansas Lottery will use Scientific Games’ technology for the first time in its three-decades-long history.
Long List of Products and Services
Under the provisions of the new deal, Kansas Lottery will be able to use a wide array of Scientific Games’ products, including WAVE X lottery retail terminals and AEGIS, the company’s open-architecture gaming system. This means the Kansas Lottery will use the SciTrak Ultra instant games inventory management system and OrderCast predictive ordering engine, offered by AEGIS, with back-office processes supplied by Scientific Games.
Aside from these, Scientific Games will also offer Infuse, its line of products and services aimed at helping lotteries to plan, predict, inform and innovate through the application of business intelligence.
The two companies are already working together, since earlier this year Scientific Games started supplying the Kansas Lottery with instant games and other related technology via Lapis Software Associates, acquired back in July.
Improving Overall Performance
Kansas Lottery executive director Terry Presta said the new gaming system supplied by Scientific Games aligned with the company’s goals and vision. According to him, the main objective for the future places more emphasis on advanced technology in order to improve the overall performance.
Presta explained Kansas Lottery had selected Scientific Games as a partner because the company believed its technology could enhance its retail operations, which would positively reflect on the efforts to maximise profits.
Scientific Games Senior VP of lottery systems, Patrick McHugh added the technology produced by his company was proving that Scientific Games had the capacity to enable lotteries to maximise profits and serve their retailers and players with the very best products available in the market.
