Via its Global Draw Ltd subsidiary, industry technology group Scientific Games Corporation (SGC) has secured a ‘landmark’ partnership with Norsk Tipping.
The new agreement will see SGC supply 3,000-4,500 Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) across approximately 1,000 locations across Norway, which will include convenience stores, bingo venues and other arenas.
Thorbjørn A Unneberg, EVP Market Operations Norsk Tipping, commented: “Having worked closely with Scientific Games over the years, we are delighted that they can extend their offering with us further.
“Scientific Games was the best qualified vendor throughout the public procurement process and they have developed a unique hardware solution that meets our high expectations in terms of quality and design. We look forward to seeing the new terminals rolled out next year, and growing our successful partnership.”
Under the partnership, Norsk Tipping has become the first European customer of Scientific Games to secure partnerships with the company for lottery, gaming and digital services, extending its current offering of iGaming, eInstant games, instant lottery games, lottery gaming systems and retail technology.
Phil Horne, SG Gaming UK CEO, added: “Scientific Games has a wealth of gaming and lottery expertise across its business units. Using a collaborative approach and bringing in the best resources from across the Company was key to securing this deal, demonstrating that we will meet all customer needs and deliver a specific, tailored gaming solution. This has been an exciting project from the start – it has really allowed us to demonstrate our core strengths while delivering the right product for Norway.
“The modular design combines sleek contemporary style with a host of advanced functions and features to provide an entertaining and engaging experience for the Norwegian player. The flexibility of the new product means that it will work in any retail environment.”
