Scientific Games has announced it will be the lottery industry’s provider of Micromotion, a patented printing technology that creates the illusion of movement like that of holographic ticket stock.
Micromotion allows logos, play symbols and other game images to appear and move in three-dimension when the instant game ticket is viewed from different angles.
Jeff Martineck, Vice President of Instant Product Development for Scientific Games, said: “Micromotion™ is the newest, light reflecting value-add for lottery instant game tickets. Offering a limitless combination of light-reflecting patterns and effects, it’s a very cost-effective way to create visual impact at retail and offer a premium play experience.”
Scientific Games adapted the proprietary Micromotion printing technology to lottery instant game tickets after the Company’s research showed that games featuring light reflection experienced 9% on average greater sales than comparable instant games in the market.
