Scientific Games to help Delaware Lottery’s sports betting expansion

By Harrison Sayers

Scientific Games has announced that it will be responsible for implementing the state of Delaware’s expansion into full-scale sports betting.

A deal between Scientific Games and the Delaware Lottery agreed in 2009, to provide content and manage services, has placed Scientific Games in a favourable position as the state becomes the first in the US to add full- scale sports betting following the removal of PASPA.

The continuation of this deal will see Scientific Games providing integrated sports wagering technology, content and managed services to help with the new sports betting expansion.

Having previously offered online sports betting for professional American Football matches, new laws in Delaware allow for regulated sports betting, to be launched through the Delaware Lottery.

Scientific Games has already overseen the Delaware Lottery’s growth from $10m to over $46m across a network of casino and lottery retailers in the state.

The company also currently provides Delaware Lottery with lottery instant games, draw-based games including Keno, online gaming and video lottery gaming.

Discussing the new sports betting expansion and his company’s role in it Pat McHugh, Senior Vice President, Global Lottery Systems for Scientific Games, said: "Since Delaware is known as 'The First State', it's appropriate they were first in the nation to expand regulated sports betting after the PASPA ruling. We are proud to support the Delaware Lottery's long history of industry firsts, and thrilled to be their trusted provider of an integrated sports betting program serving both casinos and lottery retailers across the state.

"The combination of Scientific Games and NYX Gaming Group earlier this year created a global leader across iLottery, online gaming and sports betting that offers unrivalled capabilities to lotteries worldwide. As an integrated company, we are ready to serve our customers like the Delaware Lottery with the gaming entertainment industry's leading sports platforms, content and services."

Commenting on the new opportunity Vernon Kirk, Delaware Lottery Director, added: "In anticipation of the Supreme Court's ruling on PASPA, we have been working with Scientific Games, our long-time sports betting provider, as well as training our lottery and casino staff, so that we were ready to launch full-scale, head-to-head betting on single games.”
