The Scientific Games Corporation has announced it will support Lotterie Nazionali, the operator of Gratta e Vinci in Italy, following the successful integration of its advanced core instant ticket system technology with the gaming system provided by its joint venture partner.
Having supplied instant ticket system technology to both Lotterie Nazionali and its predecessor, Consorzio Lotterie, since 2004, Scientific Games will now see its newly integrated system power more than 60,000 retail points of sale.
Pat McHugh, Group Chief Executive Lottery, for Scientific Games, said, “We’re proud of our long-standing relationship with Lotterie Nazionali, and excited to provide our new instant ticket system technology in Italy. Our games and technology are continually advancing with focus on responsibly maximizing lottery returns to lottery beneficiaries.”
Gratta e Vinci instant games launched in 2004 and has seen its product category grow to over $10bn in annual retail sales by 2018, registering a compound annual growth rate of more than 23%.
In addition to supplying the Lotterie Nazionali, Scientific Games also supplies the majority of instant games purchased by players in Italy as well as across the European continent, with its systems and games generating more than 70% of lottery instant game retail sales globally.
