Scientific Games is honored to be a trusted partner in their remarkable success. We appreciate the continued confidence in our games, innovative products, technology and services to maximize profits for Lotería Electrónica and their retailers.”
As part of the systems conversion, Scientific Games implemented a new, comprehensive suite of retail technologies, innovative products and services to support Lotería Electrónica’s growth and the region’s customer trends.
Víctor Pizarro Núñez, Assistant Secretary of the Puerto Rico Lotteries, said, “The system conversion we implemented for Lotería Electrónica de Puerto Rico was part of a long-term strategic growth plan that included integrating our draw and instant game technologies so that our products are more convenient for our retailers to sell, more accessible to our players, and more efficient for the Lotería Electrónica to manage. Scientific Games’ conversion went live with great success, and this is an important step forward to support our growth in the coming years.”
