Scientific Games has been named as the winner of the Vermont Lottery’s gaming systems technology contract.
As part of the contract, Scientific Games will offer its Aegis open architecture enterprise gaming system and central communications network for Vermont Lottery services, as well as its Wave retail terminals and PlayCentral self-service machines throughout Vermont.
The contract is set to last for 10 years, with the option to extend for an additional 10.
Scientific Games said it was chosen for the contract due to its performance record in generating revenue for lottery beneficiary programs.
“After an extremely thorough evaluation of proposals to the Vermont Lottery, Scientific Games stood out as the clear choice to modernize the Vermont Lottery and to deliver outstanding player experiences,” said Sabina Haskell, deputy commissioner of the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery.
“And our retailers will be equally delighted with the gaming system and support they will receive.”
As well as providing technology services, the Vermont Lottery will also take advantage of Scientific Games’ sales channel development to focus on marketing and revenue optimization.
The Vermont Lottery will begin to implement Scientific Games’ technology in late 2022.
“Scientific Games is honored by the trust the Vermont Lottery has placed in our Company, our people and our products to support the Lottery’s mission of responsibly maximizing growth over the next 10 years and creating more funding for programs that make Vermont a great place to live,” said Pat McHugh, Lottery CEO for Scientific Games.
“Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers’ business plans has positioned Scientific Games as the industry’s fastest-growing lottery systems provider.”
