Scientific Games has been named the primary instant games partner for Loto-Québec through a new, five-year contract that significantly expands the number of instant scratch games the company will design and produce locally for Loto-Québec players.
Scientific Games has been a supplier to Loto-Québec for more than five decades and recently invested millions of dollars to advance production technologies and innovation at its Quebec facility.
The company, certified by the World Lottery Association as a Responsible Gaming Supplier, has produced more than 4,500 instant games for Loto-Québec at its Montreal facility over the past 50 years, including the lottery’s very first game. That facility also produces games for four Canadian provincial lotteries as well as lotteries in the U.S., France, Hungary, Australia and other countries.
“Scientific Games is a longstanding Loto-Québec business partner and employer in Québec. The company’s leaders understand what we are trying to accomplish by creating new, exciting instant game entertainment for our players. They also support us in creating greener scratch games to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Isabelle Jean, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Lotteries at Loto-Québec, in a release.
“We have made a significant investment in production technologies at our Montreal facility to innovate new games for the enjoyment of Québec players and support the lottery in its mission,” said John Schulz, President, Americas & Global Instant Products for Scientific Games. “With five instant game production facilities on four continents, our global scale allows us to support Loto-Québec and all of our customers with unparalleled game production capacity and distribution solutions that make Scientific Games the lottery business partner of choice.”
Scientific Games’ products generate more than 70 per cent of global instant game retail sales, with the company providing games, technology, and services to 130 lotteries in 50 countries around the globe, including nearly every North American lottery.
