Scientific Games announced that the Montana Lottery has extended its existing five-year instant “scratch” games contract for two years through August 2022. Scientific Games, the world’s largest creator, manufacturer and manager of lottery instant games, is the sole provider of Montana Scratch games, with some of the most innovative instant games in the U.S.
The Montana Lottery is consistently one of the first lotteries to opt for strategic product enhancements from Scientific Games, including specialty papers, finishes and inks like foil, holographic, MicroMotion™, HD Games™, Sparkle®, LuxVelvet® and LuxTouch®, in addition to products with more chances to play and win such as two-sided play with Scratch My Back® games.
“We are delighted to continue our innovation with Scientific Games on Montana Scratch games for two more years through this contract extension,” said Angela Wong, Director of the Montana Lottery. “We look forward to strengthening our current Montana Scratch offering with more exciting new games that both entertain players and responsibly drive state funding to benefit all Montanans.”
Scientific Games has served as a trusted provider to the Montana Lottery since the Lottery’s inception in 1987, and was selected as the Lottery’s sole primary instant games provider to help drive maximum proceeds to the state of Montana. The Lottery’s proceeds support the Montana STEM Scholarship Program and the General Fund which supports the majority of state government and programs.
“The Montana Lottery has always been a leader in launching scratch games that feature our newest manufacturing techniques and licensed brands. They are typically one of the first lotteries in the U.S. to try innovative approaches to traditional instant games, and we are honored by the trust they continue to place in our Company for more than 30 years,” said John Schulz, Senior VP Instant Products for Scientific Games.
