The new deal is part of the Latvian state’s drive for responsible growth and funding to the country’s budget, as well as other programmes for Latvian children, and youth education and sports.

Thanks to the technology (which will launch in the spring of 2023), Latvijas Loto will meet its responsible growth objectives with a 50% increase in retailer points-of-sale across the European Baltic state.

As per the contract, Scientific Games will provide Latvijas Loto with its AEGIS open architecture enterprise gaming system and WAVE X retailer point-of-sale terminals, as well as support and maintenance services.

Edgars Lediņš, Chairman of the Board for Latvijas Loto, said: “After a 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.”

Pat McHugh, CEO of Scientific Games added: “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."

Most recently, Scientific Games and the Colorado Lottery extended their existing agreement, as part of a growth plan to drive contributions to services in Colorado.
