American betting group Scientific Games has announced that they're becoming a distributor of SidePlay Entertainment, and will offer the group's iGames to the North American lottery market.
The agreement will see Scientific Gaming providing the games through their Open Gaming System, and the first market to get the games will be the state of Pennsylvania. The developer's newest game 'Piggy Bank Payout' is already live in the Keystone State, and other games are coming online in the very near future.
Commenting on the agreement Scientific Games VP Lottery Digital Content Studio Amy Bergette said, "We're delighted to bring exciting new e-instant game entertainment to Pennsylvania Lottery players first through our newly-formed partnership with SidePlay Entertainment. These new games will be a great addition to our offering of ilottery content that can be enjoyed conveniently from players' desktop or laptop computers, tablets and mobile devices."
SidePlay Entertainment Steve Hickson added: "In partnership with Scientific Games, our team has worked closely with the team at the Pennsylvania Lottery to refine game content for their players. We're delighted to be helping the lottery broaden the variety of ilottery content available in the state and in turn, providing a significant contribution to programmes for older Pennsylvanians. We're looking forward to a continued and successful partnership with both the Pennsylvania Lottery and Scientific Games."
