Scientific Games Wins Massachusetts Lottery Contract
Following a competitive procurement process, Scientific Games has once again been selected as the primary vendor to supply instant tickets and related services to the Massachusetts State Lottery. The initial three year contract, with two one-year extension options, will be worth approximately US$12 million per year to the company, commencing July 2009.
Joe Wright, CEO of Scientific Games, said: "The Massachusetts State Lottery has created an unparalleled instant ticket success story and become an icon in the lottery world. We have worked with the Massachusetts Lottery since inception and we are very pleased to continue our long-term partnership.
"The Massachusetts Lottery is the perfect example of what a state lottery can be and we are looking forward to helping them generate record results."
Mark J. Cavanagh, Director of the Massachusetts State Lottery, added: Scientific Games has helped the Massachusetts Lottery to achieve record sales year after year to the point where instant tickets now generate 70% of our lottery's total retail sales.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with Scientific Games in growing the instant ticket lottery and contributing more to the cities and towns of the Commonwealth."
Last year the Massachusetts State Lottery generated over $4.7 billion in retail sales and contributed nearly $1.0 billion to the cities and towns of the Commonwealth.
