“Santa Casa’s decision to launch interactive instant win games from our industry-leading content portfolio several years ago has been a game changer for them, greatly enriching their entertainment offering and expanding their customer base. Since the beginning of our partnership, SCML has experienced impressive online success with record sales year over year,” said Ilan Rosen, CEO of NeoGames.

Lynne Roiter, Secretary General and Vice President of Legal Affairs, who had taken over for Mr. Patenaude as Interim President and CEO, praised the human and professional qualities of this beloved colleague: “Over the past 30 years, many of us got to know Simon well. Highly respected as a colleague and manager, he was particularly known for his dedication, leadership, charisma and concern for the good of our company. But more than that, he was considered a great man for his human qualities, his sense of humour, close ties with employees and genuine interest in the people around him.”

Kevin Sheehan, CEO and President, said, "Scientific Games is focused on building momentum. The dedicated efforts of our employees combined with the benefits that our products and technology solutions deliver to our gaming, lottery and interactive customers and players led to year-over-year increases in revenue, AEBITDA and free cash flow. The breadth and depth of our new products showcased at the Global Gaming Expo ("G2E") and National Association of State and Provincial Lotteries ("NASPL") tradeshows demonstrate our commitment to innovation and solutions that help our customers more fully engage with their players to create growth. With the most comprehensive portfolio of solutions available to the gaming and lottery industries, we continue to raise the bar with new products that help our customers grow revenue and generate profitable returns on their investment."

"I am really pleased to deliver an excellent set of results for Q3. Our unparalleled service drove a 37% growth in operator turnover, which led to strong results for Kambi of 25% growth in operating profit. I am highly encouraged by the partnership we have signed with the prestigious gaming company NOVOMATIC Lottery Solutions, where we are joining forces to create a state-of-the-art omni-channel solution for government regulated lotteries, which is a key target segment for Kambi. This partnership strengthens our outreach to potential clients in the lottery sector. Part of our growth strategy is to build on our retail offering. We have seen tangible results as our retail service is being rolled out in several regions and is gaining momentum." says Kristian Nylén, CEO of Kambi.

NeoGames CEO Ilan Rosen said, “Our emphasis at WLS this year – Pamper Your Players – highlights how an in-depth understanding of players enables lotteries to cater to player needs and wants. Meeting player expectations is key to enhancing customer satisfaction and increasing business results.” “For most lotteries, retail and iLottery are two separate worlds that are managed differently. In one, the player is anonymous; in the other, well known. With NeoGames, the lottery dissolves the barriers between channels, supercharging the player experience and generating new revenues.”

Lotto sales could top a billion dollars for the first time in this financial year. If they do, it will be the result of growth strategies Lotto has adopted, as well as a bit of luck. "It's an awfully big number, and one we are fast approaching, and quite possibly in this financial year," Lotto chief executive Wayne Pickup said.

“The moment they hear the carolers sing, many Pennsylvanians reflexively smile, sing along and mentally count the weeks until they can put up the tree,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “We are proud that our popular commercial brings back so many warm memories for viewers and has become a Keystone State holiday tradition.” PA Lottery’s Beloved ‘Snowfall’ Commercial Returns for 25th Season

"Players love this limited-time Raffle promotion because it offers the best odds to become Florida's next millionaire," said Florida Lottery Secretary Tom Delacenserie. "Seven $1 million prizes will be awarded in this year's Grand Prize Drawing; and those who buy early will have even more chances to win."
