The Ecuadorian National Lottery will launch electronic draw-based lottery games for the first time in the country as it enters into a new contract with Scientific Games.
Lotería Nacional de Ecuador has awarded a new, 10-year contract to Scientific Games that also includes instant games, lottery systems and retail technology.
Jorge Medina, general manager of Lotería Nacional de Ecuador, said: “We are very pleased to extend our excellent relationship with Scientific Games through an instant game contract that includes new technology and enables us to launch a new mode of instant and draw-based lottery games for the enjoyment of our players, and ultimately generate more funds to support our causes in Ecuador.”
Revenues generated from the sale of Lotería Nacional’s instant and draw games will benefit Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil, a non-profit organisation in Ecuador founded in 1888 for health, education and social protection. The organisation’s vision is to expand its social and charitable work to all corners of Ecuador in favour of people in conditions of vulnerability and extreme poverty.
Lotería Nacional’s new agreement with Scientific Games includes business intelligence software, as well as an instant game management system that streamlines game inventory control and logistics.
John Schulz, president of Americas and global instant products for Scientific Games, said: “We are honoured to expand our 20-year relationship with Lotería Nacional de Ecuador with our world-leading instant game services, and by launching electronic draw games for the very first time in Ecuador. Drawing upon our global experience with national lotteries, our goal is to support the Lottery’s retailer network expansion with our patented technologies to drive more profits for Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil’s social work.”
