Delware Lottery renews contract with Scientific Games

Delaware LotteryDelaware Lottery: Delware Lottery renews contract with Scientific Games

Scientific Games will continue to provide cooperative services to the Delaware Lottery for at least another three years under terms of an agreement announced today.

Instant ticket services to be provided include warehousing, marketing, distribution and installation of game management software. The contract is valued at $7.1 million over the three years, and includes three one-year extension options.

Over the current contract, Delaware Lottery sales have risen more than 46 percent under Scientific Games' marketing programs and the company's web-based management system has been well-received by the lottery's retailers. Games featuring the licensed properties of the firm's MDI subsidiary have also proven popular in Delaware.

"We've found that Scientific Games handles the overall lottery systems management well, with excellent systems and data security," said Wayne Lemons, Director of the Delaware Lottery. "We've enjoyed solid instant ticket sales growth, with consistent and reliable logistical support."

"Delaware may be a small state, but it's an important customer for us," said Scientific Games Chairman and CEO Lorne Weil. "It runs one of the most comprehensive suites of games in the United States and sets high standards for all of them. We're pleased to answer those standards."

The Delaware Lottery is the state's fourth-largest source of revenue, transferring more than $2.1 billion to the General Fund since 1975 and $234 million in fiscal 2005. Most state services, including public and higher education, health and social services, and public safety, are financed through the General Fund.

Oh that's just great.  That means that despite the people of Delaware making known VOCIFEROUSLY their objection to the COMPUTERIZED LOTTERY in Delaware, that Delaware's OFFICIALS have once again decided to SCREW the players and renew the COMPUTERIZATION for 3 more years.

I stopped playing Delaware's lottery games and encourage EVERYONE else to do so too!

Doesn't anybody listen to the PEOPLE anymore???

Hey, if you stop playing all computerized lottery games, the state gets NO REVENUES!~

Let's DO IT!

      I don't think you understood the article. They renewed their scratch-off manufacturing contract. Their draw games were not affected by this contract renewal. If the article did involve a computerized drawing, Todd would have included a footnote.

        DS9 is correct: the contract is for instant games:

        Instant ticket services to be provided include warehousing, marketing, distribution and installation of game management software. The contract is valued at $7.1 million over the three years, and includes three one-year extension options.

        A cooperative services agreement is where the vendor basically does everything, from marketing the game through the supply chain. 

        Here's a link to the cooperative services page at Scientific Games: http://www.scientificgames.com/sgcorp/coop_services.asp

        As far as I know, Scientific Games does not offer a drawing computer; just the systems that track the numbers played (among other things).

        I do agree with Greg as far as Delaware's awful computerized drawings are concerned.  If I were a Delaware resident, I would be making my voice heard on a weekly basis.

          DS9?

          Scientific Games actually services the draw computer for Indiana, which simply uses an unhooked ticket machine, like you find in the store, to draw their numbers. Deleware uses an entirely different computer, one that is supposedly more random.

          But honest and random, or rigged worse than a 50's game show, computer drawings are, in my opinion, bad simply because there's no drama involved with the drawing. Just a flicker of a screen, *YAWN*. The mystery of what's going on only makes things worse.
