Scientific Games has announced a new, long-term provider contract with Latvijas Loto, the National Lottery of Latvia.

The organisations have worked side-by-side for over 20 years but this latest agreement will see Scientific Games provide new technology as part of a plan to ‘drive responsible growth and funding’ to benefit the Latvian state budget, as well as other programmes for Latvian children, youth education and sports.

The new technology will launch in the spring of 2023 as Latvijas Loto looks to meet its responsible growth objectives, targeting a 50% increase in retailer points-of-sale in the European Baltic state.

“After thorough evaluation, Latvijas Loto chose to modernise our systems technology with Scientific Games so that we may continue to deliver outstanding player experiences and meet our growth potential,” said Edgars Lediņš, Chairman of the Board for Latvijas Loto.

“We look forward to the efficiencies this technology advancement will bring to our entire operation, and our retailers will be delighted with the new terminals and support they will receive.”

Scientific Games will also look to aid Latvijas Loto’s growth with its AEGIS open architecture enterprise gaming system and WAVE X retailer point-of-sale terminals, as well as offering support and maintenance services.

“Scientific Games is honoured by the longstanding partnership and trust Latvijas Loto has placed in our company, our people and our products to support its mission of responsibly maximising growth over the next 10 years,” added Pat McHugh, CEO for Scientific Games.

“Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers’ growth plans has positioned Scientific Games as the lottery industry’s leading systems technology provider in Europe and the fastest growing in the US.”

The firm has recently announced a number of other new deals in various continents, including North America and South America.
