NEW YORK, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (Nasdaq: SGMS) (the "Company") today announced that it has signed a three-year extension to its contract with the Delaware State Lottery to supply both lottery and central monitoring systems. The extension, which will continue to provide for a range of services and support for draw-based lottery, keno, video lottery games and instant game pass-through transactions, will begin in February 2015. The extension also calls for the installation of a minimum of 450 WMS multi-game video lottery terminals (VLTs) at charitable gaming organizations in Delaware. The VLTs will be monitored and controlled by the Company's AEGIS® central management system, one of the most flexible, open technology systems in the lottery industry.
"Our successful partnership with Scientific Games has contributed considerable growth to the Delaware Lottery," said Vernon Kirk, Delaware State Lottery Director. "We are excited that for the first time ever, licensed charitable gaming organizations across Delaware will now benefit from fan-favorite video lottery terminals with the added security and controls of a central monitoring system."
"The Delaware State Lottery is well known as an industry leader in responsibly regulating new gaming opportunities to create jobs and maximize proceeds for the citizens of Delaware. Starting with the first instant games in 1976, Scientific Games has been a trusted supplier to the Delaware State Lottery, delivering innovative games, technology and services. In late 2013, we also helped the Lottery successfully launch the first comprehensive iGaming system in the U.S.," said Pat McHugh, President of North American Lottery Systems for Scientific Games. "We are honored to continue our long-standing relationship with the Delaware State Lottery with this contract extension and look forward to continued successes."
"This agreement demonstrates the synergies we envisioned with the acquisition of WMS, whereby Scientific Games can offer a wide variety of premium products and solutions across multiple distribution channels for our customers," said Brooks Pierce, Chief Revenue Officer of Gaming for Scientific Games. "By leveraging the expanded resources of our combined organization, we are able to provide the Delaware State Lottery with a comprehensive offering of instant, draw and keno games, a central management system, video lottery terminals, sports betting and iGaming to support the Lottery's continued growth."
In fiscal 2013, the Delaware State Lottery had a record year with $47.5 million in instant game sales, as well as a 9% increase in draw game sales from fiscal year 2012 to 2013 driven by stronger sales of Powerball®, Hot Lotto® and sales from newly launched keno at select retailers.
