Scientific Games Extends Relationship With Washington Lottery

The Washington Lottery has chosen Scientific Games to continue offering betting services to players in the Evergreen State, continuing a relationship that has been in place for more than 40 years.

Scientific Games provides instant lottery games to players in the state and has grown instant game revenues by 60% during the last ten years. That will continue for another six years, with an additional renewal available for four years.

The state's lottery funds go toward financial aid for college students, early childhood education, vocational programs, responsible gaming, and economic development.

During the announcement of the new extension, it was also revealed that the LOTERIA games are the most popular scratch cards in the state. The games have generated more than $460 million in gaming revenues to the state since they were released.

Regarding the partnership, Washington Lottery Instant Product Manager Gaylene Gray said: "Our work with Scientific Games has made a difference. We've been able to offer our players entertaining scratch game experiences while responsibly driving more funding for the good cause programs that enrich our communities. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Scientific Games as into the next phase of innovation and growth for our products."

Scientific Games President of Americas and Global Instant Products John Schulz added: "It is a pleasure to continue our collaboration with Washington's Lottery on its very successful product portfolio as primary instant game provider. The Lottery's team has always embraced innovation and is willing to try new ideas that entertain players and drive more funding for vital programs in the state."
