Scientific Games announced the successful launch of its instant ticket gaming system in Switzerland. The Company’s technology is now powering instant game sales for Swisslos Interkantonale Landeslotterie (“Swisslos” or the “Lottery”), one of the Top 10 largest instant game lotteries in Europe (La Fleur’s 2021 World Almanac, total instant game sales), serving a population of approximately 6.4 million across a network of 4,100 retailers.
Dr. Roger Fasnacht, Director of Swisslos, said, “We have partnered with Scientific Games on technology for nearly 30 years, and we are now excited to launch an instant ticket gaming system to manage our instant game logistics with a technology-based, advanced approach that ensures our players and retailers have the products they need, when and where they need them, which helps us responsibly grow sales and ultimately, our beneficiary proceeds.”
Swisslos instant games represented USD $410 million of its $1.1 billion total lottery retail sales in 2020. In addition to instant games and the new instant ticket management system, Scientific Games provides the Lottery with a central lottery gaming system, WAVE™ retailer point-of-sale terminals, terminal software, and a sports betting solution.
“The launch of this new instant ticket management system is a testament to Swisslos’ vision for modernized, streamlined operations to expertly manage its products,” said Christian Kometer, Managing Director International Lottery Systems, for Scientific Games. “We are honored to continue our trusted relationship with Swisslos over the last three decades by continually advancing technologies to support Swiss players, retailers and maximize profits for the Lottery’s beneficiary programs.”
