Scientific Games SYMPHONY gaming system technology will be launched through the Stuttgart-based lottery operator, which means that Lotto Baden-Württemberg must migrate the gaming system that it currently has.
The agreement also makes Lotto Baden-Württemberg the first state lottery operator in Germany to implement the SYMPHONY system.
Likewise, Scientific Games will provide the German company with software support and maintenance, as part of the agreement. SG will offer its services to Lotto Baden-Württemberg from its technological operations base in Vienna, Austria.
Following the signing of the agreement, the chief executive for Lottery Games at Scientific Games, Pat McHugh said:
“We thank Lotto Baden-Württemberg for their continued confidence in our leadership in systems technology with our new SYMPHONY gaming system.”
McHugh said they will continue to
“provide the best products that generate the most profit for our lottery customers, their retailers and players with technology that safely integrates all product entertainment game lines and offers operational efficiencies.”
The vice president of sales and marketing of Scientific Games International Lottery Systems, Matthias Müller, for his part, added that:
“SYMPHONY is an autonomous system that can be implemented more efficiently than other systems, allowing faster implementation of market requirements.”
He said the system is specially
“designed to easily integrate third-party solutions through its open interface.”
Of the 16 German state lotteries, Lotto Baden-Württemberg is the third largest company and has more than 3,000 authorized retailers. Last year the state company reported a decrease in sales to 977.9 million euros. The fall was attributed to Eurojackpot’s lowest prize jackpots in 2019, which also affected the German state lottery market.
