Scientific Game’s platforms, retail solutions productions and game services will modernise the Lottery, aiming to maximise revenue for the State of Vermont’s Education Fund.
The company was selected based on the highest overall score and its performance record of generating maximum profits for lottery beneficiary programs, according to Scientific Games. It will provide its AEGIS open architecture enterprise gaming system and a central communications network, along with WAVE retailer terminals and PlayCentral self-service machines across Lottery retailers in the state.
“Scientific Games is honoured by the trust the Vermont Lottery has placed in our company, our people and our products to support the Lottery's mission of responsibly maximizing growth over the next 10 years and creating more funding for programs that make Vermont a great place to live,” said Pat McHugh, Lottery Group CEO for Scientific Games. “Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers' business plans has positioned Scientific Games as the industry's fastest-growing lottery systems provider.”
Scientific Games will also provide turnkey system operations and game services, with the Vermont Lottery to benefit from the company’s retailer services to develop new and existing channels, such as marketing and associated gaming products.
“After an extremely thorough evaluation of proposals to the Vermont Lottery, Scientific Games stood out as the clear choice to modernize the Vermont Lottery and to deliver outstanding player experiences,” said Sabina Haskell, Deputy Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery. “And our retailers will be equally delighted with the gaming system and support they will receive.”
