Internet betting software group Scientific Games has announced that they've signed a partnership deal with Ladbrokes Coral and will supply terminals for the company's retail shops throughout the UK.
The agreement will see SG overseeing the supply of terminals in more than 3,500 shops in the UK over the next 7 years. The terminals will be of the Equinox 2.4 variety, including state of the art software to facilitate different wagers. The machines are slated to be released in waves beginning later this year.
Commenting on the agreement SG Gaming UK CEO Phil Horne said, "This deal - which is the largest in our history - comes during one of the most significant years ever for SG Gaming for product innovation as we have continued to work with our customers to develop and launch our biggest, most innovative and most exciting new product range to date, creating an offer that can help our customers adapt with confidence to the changing gaming environment.
"We have worked closely with the team at Ladbrokes Coral to provide them with an innovative gaming product that we believe will complement and enhance their overall retail offer, and we are very excited about working with them on the next stage of this successful partnership."
Ladbrokes Coral Retail Managing Director Mark Chambers also commented, noting: "SG Gaming has shown us that it is a forward-thinking supplier, not only with its impressive new products and investment in the sector but also with its continued focus on driving the direction and implementation of player protection measures across the industry.
"We look forward to continuing to work with them as we build on this partnership."
