“We believe the future lies in the integration of systems to enable frictionless purchase everywhere lottery products are sold. Through this collaboration with Scientific Games, together we have the full breadth of products to deliver the future today.”
Michael Martin, VP of retail solutions for Scientific Games, added, “We are excited to expand our tech innovation with Abacus to further advance the convenience of selling and purchasing lottery products at retail. Self-checkout is a transformative change for convenience retailers and the innovation strength of Abacus and Scientific Games provides lotteries a cohesive and seamless approach for meeting player journeys for an ever-changing lottery market.”
