Latvijas Loto Extends Partnership With Scientific Games

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Lavia's national lottery Latvijas Loto has announced that they've extended their current technology agreement with Scientific Games, and will continue to leverage the company's backend tools moving forward.

The deal will go into effect now, but will see Scientific Games providing new and updated lottery systems to the operator beginning of spring of next year. The lottery group said earlier that they're looking to expand the points of sales across the country, and Scientific Games will also be providing terminals for these locations. Maintenance services are also included in the agreement.

Both groups have been working together for over 20 years, and with a continuing supply agreement in place, it's unlikely we'll see the deal end anytime soon.

Regarding the extension, Latvijas Loto Chairman Edgars Ledins said, "After thorough evaluation, Latvijas Loto chose to modernise our systems technology with Scientific Games so that we may continue to deliver outstanding player experiences and meet our growth potential.

"We look forward to the efficiencies this technology advancement will bring to our entire operation, and our retailers will be delighted with the new terminals and support they will receive."

Scientific Games CEO Pat McHugh also commented, adding: "Scientific Games is honoured by the longstanding partnership and trust Latvijas Loto has placed in our company, our people and our products to support its mission of responsibly maximising growth over the next 10 years.

"Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers' growth plans has positioned Scientific Games as the lottery industry's leading systems technology provider in Europe and the fastest growing in the US."
