The Kansas Lottery has gone live with a new gaming system supplied by its technology partner Scientific Games Corporation. The new technology, powered by SG’s Momentum lottery enterprise suite, features the WAVE family of lottery retail terminals; the AEGIS open-architecture gaming system; SciTrak Ultra instant games inventory management system; and OrderCast, the predictive ordering engine.
Additionally, the firm has supplied automated workflow to support the Kansas Lottery’s back office system integration, and add flexibility with automated licensing and paperless claims. It has also deployed Infuse, a suite of products, services and expertise that help lotteries plan, predict, inform and innovate through the use of actionable business intelligence.
Terry Presta, executive director at the lottery, commented: “We are excited to confirm that our new gaming system from our new technology partner is officially ‘live’ across our network of 1,700 retailers. Our partnership with Scientific Games supports the Lottery’s mission to responsibly grow revenue for the State of Kansas with new and enhanced products and services. Our players will delight with new game experiences, and our retailers will benefit from a variety of operational efficiencies from the technology innovation.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the Kansas Lottery to the Scientific Games’ systems family, said Pat McHugh, senior vice president of global lottery systems for SG. “The new enterprise gaming system and related services will help the Lottery achieve the strategic goals it set to maximize returns to State of Kansas programs. We are honored to be the provider of choice to help the Lottery grow over the next decade and serve its players and retailers by continuously integrating the industry’s most innovative game content, products, and technology.”
In September 2017, Scientific Games was awarded a new 10-year contract for lottery gaming systems and related services by the Kansas Lottery, which may be renewed by the Lottery for up to five years.
