Online and offline casino game creator and provider of lottery machines and instant games; Scientific Games, has today announced that it has extended its instant games agreement with lottery provider in Germany; LOTTO Thuringen.
The contract that has been awarded to Scientific Games is to run for a period of three years with the option to be extended for one year and includes a new instant win game to be launched by the lottery provider next year known as eInstants.
According to reports, the two companies have been partners for around twenty years and Scientific Games has been responsible for the lottery provider’s growth over the last 5 years in the instant product sector.
Chief executive officer of LOTTO Thuringen Jochen Staschewski commented on the deal extension and what the new agreement means for his firm:
“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.”
As with other lottery providers, Scientific Games has been instrumental in not only company growth, but also revenue increases across a number of product markets in the gaming industry.
Senior vice president of instant products at Scientific Games John Schulz added:
“We have offered LOTTO Thüringen instant game products with value adds that have proven ability to responsibly increase revenue for our lottery customers around the world. The potential of instant games, sold both at retail and online/mobile, is not fully realized in Europe however they are the biggest and most successful lottery product category in the U.S. and still growing.”
