Scientific Games & Fremantle Renew Deal
As a result of the revived agreement, the American gaming technology company will continue to create unique real money titles for lottery operators across Canada and the USA. Some of the upcoming game themes are set to include Family Feud, Press Your Luck, and The Price is Right.
Three New Games to Be Released
Commenting on the agreement, President of Commercial Operations at Fremantle Rick Glankler has noted that Fremantle’s game shows and Scientific Games’ innovative lotto titles are the perfect match. He said that his firm cannot wait to see more thrilling lottery games created around three of its most iconic and well-recognized game shows.
During its business partnership alongside the renowned producer of television shows, Scientific has created and launched more than 100 different games, each one featuring one of the three brands mentioned above. Additionally, in 2009 the firm also released a multi-state linked title with a The Price is Right theme, that saw no less than 16 US lotteries signing up as licensees.
Hosting events throughout Las Vegas, lotto winners were given the opportunity to play live on stage for prizes and cash jackpots. They could even be selected to spin the legendary ‘big wheel’ for the chance to win up to $1 million in cold, hard bank notes.
Scientific’s Executive VP of Lottery Licensing Kyle Rogers has noted that his firm’s innovation teams are already hard at work to create the new Fremantle-inspired lottery games. Their goal, he says, is to offer the best possible collection of licensed titles to lottery operators and their players across the globe.

In related news, Scientific Games has also reported an update to its deal with the Oneida Indian Nation. The deal, which was first announced earlier in 2019, was related to the potential New York legal sports betting industry, and would see potential sportsbook launches at numerous properties in the state.
Now, this agreement has been granted a positive determination from the National Indian Gaming Commission as further updates in the state have started to make legal wagering seem like a very real possibility.
