Scientific Games and the Minnesota Lottery have extended their existing four-year contract to help drive funding for the environment, education and health services in the state for an additional two years through June 2022.
Scientific Games has provided instant games to the Minnesota Lottery since its inception in 1990 through legacy companies.
“Branded games like SLINGO have been popular with our players, which helps generate funding to support Minnesota’s state services. We are happy that Scientific Games will continue to help us deliver what our players want for the next two years,” said Wes Harms, Director of Operations for the Minnesota Lottery.
Scientific Games lottery instant products senior VP John Schulz added: “We do extensive research and focus groups on licensed brands and play styles so that our creative teams can design games that appeal to players and drive maximum profits for our lottery customers.”
Scientific Games reported its Q2 results earlier this month. The operator saw a net loss of $198m for the three months, a significant increase from loss of $75m in 2019.
Group revenue was $539m, a 36% drop year-on-year.
