Scientific Games has signed a seven-year agreement to partner with the German lottery, Saarland-Sporttoto, to advance its instant games business strategy.
The collaboration sees the lottery join more than 20 other companies on the Scientific Games Enhanced Partnership programme.
SG will provide the lottery with new instant games design and portfolio management software, plus technology-driven analytics and insights, game manufacturing, advanced logistics, technologies to support inventory management and distribution and services to retailers throughout the southwest German state.
