New York-listed Scientific Games has entered into an agreement with Italian gaming operator Sisal to exclusively supply its range of Wave lottery terminals across the country.
The agreement comes as the result of Scientific Games winning a private, limited tender, which Sisal conducted in preparation for a public tender to operate the lottery game SuperEnalotto. Last week, Sisal signed the 9-years contract after sawing off competition from Lottomatica and Sazka subsidiary Italian GNTN Holding to land the SuperEnalotto deal.
Sisal plans to install the Wave retail terminals throughout Italy in 2020, which will become one of the largest lottery terminal point-of-sale networks in the world.
“The unique combination of Scientific Games’ laser sharp operations team and their innovative product portfolio helped Sisal achieve the best technical score possible on the licence tender,” said Sisal managing director for lottery Marco Caccavale.
Italian operator is a long-term user of Scientific Games’ WAVE terminal technology, having in 2010 become one of the first operators in the world to place an order for the machines. The initial order was for 20,000 WAVE terminals.
The latest agreement comes after Scientific Games earlier in September was granted a 10-year contract to supply instant win games and its retail technology to Turkish national lottery Milli Piyango.
“We are honored they chose us as their business partner. It also confirms that Scientific Games is on the right path to execute our global strategy to serve our gaming and lottery customers across multiple gaming verticals,” Scientific Games chief executive officer for lottery Pat McHugh commented.Follow us on
