Scientific Games (SG) has strengthened its offering for the Lativan lottery market via the launch of a new central gaming system for Latvijas Loto, the national lottery operator.

Latvijas Loto will integrate SG’s AEGIS system as a result of the 10-year contract, with the duo targeting a ‘seamless transition’ from the operator’s existing technology with the ultimate goal of accelerating future growth.

SG’s new system supports sales for the draw-based games Eurojackpot, Vikinglotto, SuperBingo, Latloto 5/35, Keno and Loto5, as well as the London-based supplier’s own instant games.

Edgars Lediņš, Chairman of the Board of Latvijas Loto, said: “We are extremely happy with our recent system conversion to more advanced technology. Scientific Games continues to provide superior products and services, making our decades-long partnership a true success. 

“Our new central system will provide enhanced data security and flexibility to support Latvijas Loto through our next era of responsible growth to benefit the Latvian state budget, as well as separate education and sports programs for Latvian children and youth.”

The contract will also see SG provide its WAVE X retail terminal to the Lativan national lottery, in addition to maintenance and support services across the operator’s network.

SG is long-term provider of tech and solutions to Latvijas Loto, having been partnered with the lottery for over 20 years. The duo’s latest collaboration follows the renewal of their agreement in September 2022.

Michael Conforti, SG’s President of International & Strategic Accounts, remarked: “We’re pleased that our collaboration with Latvijas Loto has resulted in a successful transition to a new central system to power lottery sales in Latvia. 

“The agility of the new system will allow Latvijas Loto the opportunity to grow and add products and distribution channels in the coming decade.”
