Scientific Games signs contract with Ohio lottery

Scientific Games announced it has signed a new two-year contract to provide instant games and related services to the Ohio Lottery. 

The contract, awarded through a competitive procurement process, began in July and includes instant games as well as marketing, licensed brands and interactive services.

Ohioans purchased a record $1.5 billion in instant games in fiscal year 2015, an 8.8 percent increase over the prior year.

Since 2001, Scientific Games has been the primary instant game provider to the Ohio Lottery, which is currently ranked among the Top 15 lotteries worldwide for instant game per capita sales.

“We look forward to partnering with the Ohio Lottery to drive continued growth of instant games to benefit education in the state,” said John Schulz, SG senior vice president.

“We will continue to provide a great entertainment value for Ohio players with exciting new instant games like the two $30 games launched in 2015, innovative new play styles, favorite licensed brands, and interactive mobile and internet promotions to complement instant game retail sales.”
