Scientific Games has announced the official launch of its latest generation, advanced Symphony lottery gaming systems technology, which will power Lotto Baden-Württemberg and its network of more than 3,000 licensed retailers in Stuttgart, Germany.

Scientific Games state Symphony will position the lottery to drive sustainable growth in retail and online channels, as well as bring new games and services to market. The new system is currently supporting the lottery’s full line of lottery products including Lotto 6aus49, EuroJackpot, GlücksSpirale, KENO, TOTO, Oddset sports betting, and other instant games.

Georg Wacker, Managing Director of Lotto Baden-Württemberg, said: “As the first lottery worldwide to launch the latest generation Symphony platform, we are leading the way for other lotteries in the industry to understand the importance of systems technology and third-party integration capabilities for future growth.

“We are extremely pleased with our decision to continue collaborating with Scientific Games as our technology partner, and launch Symphony as our next-generation gaming system to support our retail and digital growth plans for the coming years.”

Scientific Games developed the new Symphony lottery gaming platform with a self-contained systems architecture that integrates existing technology infrastructure and third-party systems seamlessly across all product lines.

The company states this accelerates the lottery’s ability to respond to rapidly evolving consumer and retailer needs, and quickly bring new games and services to market in both retail and digital channels. Symphony implementation is its next-generation solution built upon the modular architecture currently operational for Danske Spil and Norsk Tipping.

Pat McHugh, Lottery Group Chief Executive for Scientific Games, added: “Lotto Baden-Württemberg has demonstrated their trust in Scientific Games’ cloud-based, omnichannel technology and our sustainable growth expertise.

“We thank the Lottery and its leadership for its continued innovative vision to drive maximum, sustainable growth and profits.”

Scientific Games has been Lotto Baden-Württemberg’s technology provider since 1992 through legacy companies, and currently provides technology-based products and support from its European lottery technology facility in Vienna, Austria. Both technology teams of the lottery and the company worked throughout 2020 on the systems integration project, which was announced in January.

Matthias Müller, VP Strategic Sales & Marketing, International Lottery Accounts for Scientific Games, who helped lead the project, stated: “We congratulate Lotto Baden-Württemberg on its decision to advance operations and be prepared for future challenges and positioned for sustainable growth.

“Symphony is the right platform to support the Lottery’s strategic plans to shorten time to market for new products and services, integrate new gaming verticals, further develop retail and online channels, and integrate new technologies and partners. Symphony supports all of these goals.”

Earlier this month, Scientific Games announced it will supply and deploy lottery instant games, e-instant digital games, and WAVE lottery retailer terminals to SISAL S.p.A. (SISAL) in Morocco
