Lottery provider Scientific Games Corporation has extended its contract with the Delaware Lottery for an additional three years. The contract extension will take effect on February 1, 2015.
The contract extension allows Scientific Games to continue providing the Delaware Lottery with its instant lottery games. The company will also continue its Cooperative Services Program with the state lottery, including instant game design, marketing services, warehouse management, and inventory control and retail distribution.
The partnership between Scientific Games and the Delaware Lottery continues to grow strong; 38 years after the companies began working with each other. Delaware Lottery Director Vernon Kirk voiced his excitement over the new three-year extension, calling it “a great tool to maximize the state’s lottery market on its way to fulfill its mission of returning maximum contributions to the State of Delaware’s General Fund.”
Scientific Games Senior Vice-President Instant Products John Schulz elaborated on the latest extension, calling it another exciting opportunity for the company to continue expanding its business. “We are honored to continue to provide Delaware players with an entertaining instant product portfolio and to continuing partnering with the Delaware Lottery on a CSP program, which has been in place in the state since 1999,” Schulz said. “Our collaboration to ensure the right instant games are on sale at the right time with the right retailers has resulted in a 6.8% increase in their instant product category in fiscal year 2014 and 24% increase over last four fiscal years. We look forward to three more successful years.”
Over in China, lottery supplier China Vanguard Group (CVG) has announced a cooperative agreement with the Guizhou Province Sports Lottery Administration Centre. The deal involves CVG providing interactive self-service solutions like self-operated and franchise stores in Guizhou province, as well as lottery solutions, sales distribution and related services, for which the administration will pay CVG a percentage of total sales.
CVG’s lottery-related products are seen and played in 19 regions and provinces throughout the mainland. The Guizhou agreement is the latest example of the growing popularity of the lottery business, something CVG continues to believe has “huge market potential and is in line with the group’s recent development direction.”
