Four Mattel brands available to Scientific Games customers are MAGIC 8 BALL, ROCK ‘EM SOCK ‘EM ROBOTS, and UNO in the U.S. and Canada, and SCRABBLE and UNO in a number of international regions.
Scientific Games’ longstanding relationship with Mattel spans nearly 20 years and more than 80 lottery games to date. The global lottery company’s innovation and game design teams have licensing rights to feature the classic Mattel brands across multiple lottery products including instant scratch, pull tab, draw-based and Fast Play games sold at retail, as well as digital lottery games sold online. Scientific Games plans to expand the use of the Mattel brands in the rapidly growing Fast Play and digital game categories.
