Scientific Games

Scientific Games Corporation has deepened its cooperation alongside the Nederlandse Loterij after adding sports betting to its instant games partnership.

The long-time partner of the US gaming tech firm, the lottery has upgraded its offering with an agreement that covers the supplier’s managed trading services and access to Scientific Games’ full pre-match, in-play and risk management services.  

Maurice Meijer, chief technology officer for Nederlandse Loterij, said: “Moving onto Scientific Games’ sports betting platform was important to us, as we strive to offer our customers the best experience with Nederlandse Loterij and its brands every day. 

“We are very content with the smooth go-live process, due to the close cooperation of both of our teams. Since enhancing our offering, we’ve received strong customer feedback welcoming the new user interface. Scientific Games are an important partner for us, as we look to grow our customer base.”

Currently providing sports solutions to 24 lotteries worldwide, Scientific Games states that it “was among the first” to receive WLA certification as a responsible gaming supplier, and the first supplier member of the Global Lottery Monitoring System.

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP sportsbook, digital at Scientific Games, explained: “Credit to the teams across Nederlandse Loterij and our in-house development teams. National and state lotteries are increasingly looking for best-in-class, high performance technology and services. More than that, they are asking for demonstrable regulated market expertise. 

“Nederlandse Loterij is a valued customer of ours and we’re delighted that our sports betting technology will sit at the core of their player experiences. We anticipated the pace of regulatory change across the globe through enhanced software development and hardware deployment at scale and at speed. 

“A strategic decision that has become the foundation for our accelerated digital expansion. In the last eight weeks we have launched six sportsbooks across the globe for leading brands in our major regulated markets. Demand has driven a total transformation in our ability to deploy world class services at a pace and quality that are second to none.”
