Scientific Games has signed a five-year extension to its instant games and services contract with the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation.
Under the agreement, Scientific Games will continue to provide the Lottery with game design and game planning services, as well as analytics and insights, manufacturing, advanced logistics, warehousing and distribution.
The deal will also cover support in terms of the Lottery’s retail services.
“Through the partnership, we have the data and technology needed to effectively and efficiently design games, distribute them to our retailers around the state, and ultimately deliver trusted products to our players and generate more dollars for educational programs benefitting Tennessee students,” Tennessee Lottery president and chief executive Rebecca Paul Hargrove said.
Scientific Games’ senior vice president for lottery instant products, John Schulz, added: “Scientific Games’ long-time collaboration with the Tennessee Lottery’s team has delivered outstanding results and serves as a model for many U.S. lotteries.
“We continue to innovate new games and refine our SGEP program and technology to drive their success, and we get better every year together.”
The extension comes after Scientific Games last week reported a 19.9% decline in revenue to $2.72bn in 2020, as product sales collapsed amid land-based closures, but this was partially offset by growth in social and igaming revenue.
