Scientific Games has signed a contract with Societe de la Loterie de la Suisse Romande (LoRo) to provide delivery, installation, maintenance and support of approximately 3,000 new lottery retail terminals along with new central application terminal software and related services.
The contract includes installation of both the WAVE and Flair retail terminals that will utilize the same application to sell lottery draw games, instant games and sports games. The contract was awarded through a competitive procurement process.
Jean-Luc Moner-Banet, CEO of Societe de la Loterie de la Suisse Romande, pictured, said: “We selected Scientific Games based on the design of their WAVE and Flair terminals and the single application that runs on both terminals. Scientific Games has also demonstrated to our respective departments that its terminal concept optimizes maintainability and minimises the number of cables required. We appreciate the customization of their solutions to best match our needs.”
“LoRo is well recognized as one of the most innovative and forward-looking lotteries inEurope,” commented John Donahue, Managing Director, International Lottery Systems for Scientific Games. “We are proud to be chosen by LoRo and are confident the Swiss retailers and players will appreciate the more modern terminals.”
Loterie Romande was created in 1937 by five Swiss cantons (now six) in the South/West of Switzerland. Loterie Romande was the first Lottery to sell scratch ticket games with instant wins in Europe in 1978.
In 2011, Loterie Romande generated lottery net sales of CHF370m (US$391m) with a profit of CHF205 million (US$217m) for good causes. Loterie Romande distributes all of its profits to good causes.
