|Scientific Games Corporation has announced that it been successful in the bid to provide on-line systems and services to the North Dakota Lottery in a seven-year contract worth $12.8 million. Scientific, who have won four of the last five lottery start up bids say they are, “confident that the North Dakota Lottery will experience a very smooth Powerball launch.'|
This comes hot on the heels of the news that the company has signed a licensing agreement that will allow lotteries to tie their games into the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships – America’s most prestigious horserace. This will enable them to launch themed lottery games and promotions tied to the big event.
'This is a powerful new addition to our expanding portfolio of sports-related lottery licenses, which we are proud to make available to lotteries throughout North America,' said chairman Lorne Weil, responding to the agreement. 'The Breeders' Cup is known as the 'definitive test of champions' and has consistently been the venue for some of racing's most memorable moments.”
The games and promotions are available exclusively through MDI Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Games.
