Worldwide gaming supplier Scientific Games Corporation has announced a deal to acquire a majority stake in EsysnetG, a video bingo content studio based in Sao Paulo, Brazil for an undisclosed fee.

The acquisition provides Scientific Games with access to EsysnetG's existing and future video bingo content for the development of online, mobile, and land-based games that can be placed in markets around the globe.

Announcing the deal in a statement on the Scientific Games website, Group Chief Executive, Gaming Derik Mooberry said: "We are excited to welcome EsysnetG into the Scientific Games family.

“This acquisition will enable us to provide our customers with expanded, engaging video bingo content and is yet another example of our continued investment in solutions that help the Company offer the broadest portfolio of innovative products in the industry."
