Scientific Games (SG), a major gaming technology provider, recently announced that it had extended its instant and hybrid Lottery games supply contract with Canadian Crown Corporation, Loto-Quebec. The partnership has now been extended for another 12 months, until January 31, 2022.
This marks an astounding 50-year partnership and this recent extension serves to prolong the cooperative association where Scientific Games produce Loto-Quebec’s instant games.
Scientific Games has produced over 4,500 instant games for the Lottery, including some unique products like Boite à Bingo, La Poule aux Oeufs d’Or, and Ultime.
Local and loving it
The games that Scientific Games produces for Loto-Quebec, and four other Canadian Crown Provincial Lotteries, are all created at the company’s Montreal studio and manufacturing facility. The five-decade-long tradition of locally-produced games has added great value to provincial programs.
Scientific Games’ Senior Vice President, Instant Products, John Schultz expressed how the company is thrilled to continue advancing instant Lottery games for the local market. Schultz enthused about Scientific Games’ products, saying that they were without equal in the lottery industry world-wide. He explained that the company utilises close analytics and market-insights in the creation of all its products.
Embracing social responsibility
Scientific Games supplies all of the Top 10 instant Lotto games in the world that represent over 70% of all global sales of instant gaming products.
Schultz explained that the company is proud of its status as a large-scale manufacturing employer in Montreal, and its rich bank of local talent.
Scientific Games has thrown its weight behind several responsible gaming campaigns and movements across the regulated world, including the National Council on Problem Gambling’s “Gift Responsibly, Lottery Tickets Aren’t Child’s Play” campaign.
The campaign aggressively raises awareness around the risks of prematurely introducing children to Lottery products to underage children. Scientific Games has lent its support since 2018.
