Scientific Games

This new game system will be used to power the Bavarian State Lottery’s 3,300 retail outlets and all digital sales.

Symphony now supports two German state lotteries and will also enable Lotto Bayern to provide multi-channel sales.

Lotto Bayern products include Eurojackpot, Lotto 6aus49, Spiel 77, Super 6, GlückSpirale, Die Sieger-Chance, Keno, Plus 5 and Toto, as well as pull tab tickets and instant scratch cards.

Lotto Bayern President Claus Niederalt said: “Scientific Games is a trusted long-term technology and service partner that not only meets our very demanding architectural goals with its new Symphony platform, but also offers a transformation path that facilitates our transition from the monolithic architecture to the new modular architecture.”

The Munich lottery provider generates more than €400 million ($424.7 million) in taxes for the Bavarian state budget. These funds allow additional support for areas such as sports, culture, monument preservation and other public areas that might otherwise be underfunded.

Scientific Games Vice President of Strategic Sales and Marketing Matthias Müller said: “Lotto Bayern has taken a smart step into the future with our new Symphony gaming system technology. This advanced modular system from Scientific Games gives Lotto Bayern the agility to quickly adapt to ever-changing consumer behaviors and rapidly evolving retail and digital sales environments.”

Scientific Games has been serving Lotto Bayern since the mid-1990s.
