Scientific Games has agreed to provide its Enhanced Partnership program to the Kansas Lottery for the next five years, with an option to extend for a further five years.

According to Scientific Games, the program will provide the Kansas Lottery with a range of services including portfolio management and game planning services, data analytics, advanced logistics, and marketing support. 

“We are excited to advance our collaboration with Scientific Games through this expanded partnership,” said the Kansas Lottery Executive Director Stephen Durrell. “The track record of this technology-driven program is promising, and it provides an opportunity for us to grow the performance of our entire game portfolio.”

As well as the Enhanced Program, Scientific Games confirmed that it will deploy its SCiQ retail ecosystem at select Kansas Lottery retailers which provides real-time, store-level sales analytics. Scientific Games says that the SCiQ system can improve instant game inventory management.

“The Kansas Lottery is adding the SGEP program and technology that will expertly manage instant products across its network of approximately 1,700 retailers using data analytics,” added Scientific Games President Americas and Global Instant Products John Schulz. “This takes vision and a willingness to create change in their instant game program and we commend the Lottery’s leadership team on their work to continually improve profits for the state of Kansas.”

Earlier this month, Scientific Games extended its partnership with the New York Lottery to provide instant scratch-off games. The company began working with the Empire State’s Lottery in 1976 and now provides products to a network of approximately 14,000 lottery retailers.
