Scientific Games has won a highly competitive procurement for the Vermont Lottery’s gaming systems technology contract, winning the new business from a global competitor. Generating maximum revenues for the State of Vermont’s Education Fund, Scientific Games’ advanced platforms, retail solutions products and game services will power the Vermont Lottery for 10 years through the new contract, which may be extended for up to 10 additional years.
“After an extremely thorough evaluation of proposals to the Vermont Lottery, Scientific Games stood out as the clear choice to modernize the Vermont Lottery and to deliver outstanding player experiences,” said Sabina Haskell, Deputy Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery. “And our retailers will be equally delighted with the gaming system and support they will receive.”
US-based Scientific Games was selected as the Vermont Lottery’s gaming systems provider based on the highest overall score and its performance record of generating maximum profits for lottery beneficiary programs. The Company will provide its AEGIS open architecture enterprise gaming system and a central communications network, as well as WAVE retailer terminals and award-winning PlayCentral self-service machines across the network of Lottery retailers in the Green Mountain State. Scientific Games will also provide turnkey system operations and game services.
The Vermont Lottery will flip the switch to its new Scientific Games technology in the Fall of 2022, positioning the Lottery to meet its business growth objectives to provide millions of dollars in additional funding for Vermont’s Education Fund.
“Scientific Games is honored by the trust the Vermont Lottery has placed in our Company, our people and our products to support the Lottery’s mission of responsibly maximizing growth over the next 10 years and creating more funding for programs that make Vermont a great place to live,” said Pat McHugh, Lottery Group CEO for Scientific Games. “Our relentless commitment to innovation and alignment with our lottery customers’ business plans has positioned Scientific Games as the industry’s fastest-growing lottery systems provider.”
As part of the new contract, the Vermont Lottery will also benefit from Scientific Games’ retailer services to develop new and existing sales channels, including marketing, revenue optimization and operational services, and associated gaming products for the Vermont Lottery.
