Tuesday March 3,2015 : SCIENTIFIC GAMES EXTENDS RELATIONSHIP WITH CANADA'S ATLANTIC LOTTERY CORP.
US company will provide an internet-based iLottery gaming system.
Scientific Games, a US technology company that has previously supplied Canada's Atlantic Lottery Corporation with instant games, is to extend the relationship with a new five-year contract to provide a lottery gaming system and internet-based iLottery gaming system.
The deal includes the provision of ongoing operational monitoring and maintenance support beginning in mid-2017.
Implementation is expected to begin this month, with conversion to the new system in 2016. The five-year contract, awarded by ALC after a competitive procurement process, includes extension opportunities up to 15 years, for a total of 20 years.
ALC operates the gaming business on behalf of the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. With this new contract, ALC will replace its current lottery gaming system with a next generation gaming system and iLottery platform that will support its retail and internet gaming channels with advanced functionality and services.
