The deal will commence from July of next year.

Scientific Games has announced a new 10-year contract for lottery gaming systems and related services with the Kansas Lottery, which may be renewed by the state-run lottery for up to five years at a time.

Driven by Scientific’s advanced lottery system platform, innovative products and marketing services, the system’s implementation is scheduled for July 2018.

Kansas Lottery Executive Director Terry Presta said: "Our new gaming system from Scientific Games aligns with the Kansas Lottery's goals and vision for the future, which places more emphasis on advanced technology to enhance the Kansas Lottery's overall performance.

“We selected Scientific Games as a technology business partner because we believe their technology solution can enhance our player insights, game innovation and retail operations, and ultimately help us maximise profits for our state beneficiaries in Kansas."

The new technology launched by Scientific will feature the company's second deployment of WAVE X lottery retail terminals, part of its commerce-ready family of WAVE terminals and AEGIS, the company's open-architecture gaming system proven in many of the most progressive lotteries worldwide.

At its core, AEGIS includes SciTrak Ultra, Scientific Games' instant games inventory management system, and OrderCast, the most accurate predictive ordering engine in the industry.

Additionally, the Las Vegas-based firm will deploy its Infuse, an offering of products, services and expertise that help lotteries plan, predict, inform and innovate through the use of actionable business intelligence.

Patrick McHugh, Senior Vice President of Lottery Systems for Scientific Games, said, "We are honored the Kansas Lottery has chosen to switch to Scientific Games as their new gaming systems provider.

“Our technology, product innovations and very successful implementations in both US and international jurisdictions is proving that Scientific Games is the business partner of choice to enable lotteries to maximize profits and serve their retailers and players with continually advancing convenience, flexibility and security."

Totally Gaming says: Another stellar deal for Scientific Games Corporation, reinforcing its status as one of the global leaders in providing services to lottery and gambling organisations. This time they have struck a lucrative, long-term deal with the Kansas Lottery, a state-run lottery that has been in operation since way back in 1987. Scientific now provides games, technology and services to more than 150 lotteries worldwide, including nearly every lottery in North America - not a bad portfolio to have!
