Scientific Games Wins Danske Spil Gambling Contract

The market for platforms related to online gambling is a competitive one that governments and regulators examine closely for the necessary elements that keep their systems safe and secure. A recent announcement that the Danish state-owned operator Danske Spil has migrated to a new gaming system supplied by Scientific Games which gives the punter a reason to at least check it out.

The old Danish Lottery's legacy system has given way to the new platform which has been live since earlier this year noting it will support the regulator’s multi-channel environment. Operations provided by Scientific Games will be 24-hour seven days controlled by redundant European centralised data centres.

The intense biding for the Danish system won by Scientific Games commented that the new platform will advance the Lottery's retail, web and mobile channels significantly.

Danske Spil’s Chief executive officer Susanne Mørch Koch commented, “We knew that we were looking for a flexible, channel-agnostic system for our Lottery; our strategy for the lottery market is aggressive and progressive, and a new system is a core part of that strategy,” adding, “We need our technology platforms to be scalable, so that we can ramp up or down and add hardware components that would not require replacing the entire system, this has been a must-have requirement for our new lottery solution.”

Senior vice-president, global lottery systems at Scientific Games, Pat McHugh, also commented on the acquisition of the contract,  “There is a great deal of excitement and collaboration surrounding this conversion, as we expand our support to welcome Danske Spil to the Scientific Games’ lottery systems family.”  McHugh continued, “Scientific Games has aligned with Danske Spil's business goals to deliver our most advanced, open architecture system in Denmark with flexible, scalable technology that will support the Lottery's growth.” Danske Spil's move is an example of a regulator willing to make things better for its consumers.
