LOTTO Bayern, the state lottery operator for the German Province of Bavaria, has sanctioned an upgrade of its operating systems which expands its lead technology supplier contract with Scientific Games for a further four years.
Updating stakeholders, Scientific Games confirmed that LOTTO Bayern will become one of its first lottery partners to install its ‘new self-contained SYMPHONY system’.
The all-round technology upgrade will see LOTTO Bayern incorporate an open-architecture game management system to improve the lottery operator’s sales network efficiencies, while maximising profits for its beneficiaries.
“For more than 25 years, LOTTO Bayern has trusted Scientific Games to provide best-in-class lottery products and solutions to serve its retailers and entertain players,” said Pat McHugh, Group Chief Executive, Lottery for Scientific Games.
“Our new SYMPHONY open-architecture gaming system advances LOTTO Bayern’s operations and helps drive maximum profits for beneficiaries.”
Recording online/mobile sales and up to 3,500 licensed retail points-of-sale, state-owned LOTTO Bayern is the second largest of the 16 German lotteries.
Proceeds from LOTTO Bayern will support Bavaria’s state programmes for sports, welfare, heritage and nature conservation projects and directives
“It’s important for Scientific Games to provide our lottery customers with market-driven, cloud-ready and ultra-reliable systems, like SYMPHONY,” added Matthias Müller, VP Sales & Marketing International Lottery Accounts for Scientific Games.
“SYMPHONY accelerates time-to-market for new products and services while integrating new solutions to implement new games, providing LOTTO Bayern players with the latest state-of-the-art technology.”
