Betting firm Scientific Games has announced that they've signed an extension with Staatliche Lotterieverwaltung, which is known to non-Germans as Lotto Bayern to help provide lottery services in the state of Bavaria.
The deal will see the two groups working together for the next four years, with an extension of five additional years if both groups agree to the terms. SG already provides 3,500 point of sale terminals for lottery games, and they'll be providing digital lottery services moving ahead. Lotto Bayern is the second-largest lottery within Germany, serving the state of Bavaria and their 13 million residents.
Commenting on the deal Scientific Games VP of Sales and Marketing for International Lottery Accounts Matthias Muller said, "It's important for Scientific Games to provide our lottery customers with market-driven, cloud-ready and ultra-reliable systems, like Symphony.
"Symphony accelerates time-to-market for new products and services while integrating new solutions to implement new games, providing Lotto Bayern players with the latest state-of-the-art technology."
The two groups have worked together for 25 years.
