First secure instant scratch-off tickets ever sold in the U.S. Printed by Scientific Games for Massachusetts in 1974.
Nearly 40 years ago, Scientific Games started as a small, innovative instant ticket printing company that has grown into a giant of a corporation, providing many products and services to numerous industries. Instant games have been a primary driver of Scientific Games' growth. The Company's ability to deliver consistently and reliably these fast-action products creatively, quickly and securely is a key reason Scientific Games manufactures more instant lottery tickets annually than all other lottery suppliers combined.
The investment Scientific Games has made in the instant category strategically aligns with this growth and coincides with a trend among lotteries internationally to lean more heavily on the instant category for incremental revenue. In Fiscal Year 2010, Scientific Games continues to serve as the primary instant ticket provider for eight of the top 10 U.S. lotteries, based on per capita sales (a key lottery industry performance benchmark).
Scientific Games' instant ticket and related services business comprise ticket design and manufacturing, as well as value-added services including game design, sales and marketing support, specialty games and promotions, inventory management and warehousing and distribution, and fulfillment services.
The Company focuses its product design efforts, program creations, and business decisions on what is best for the retailer and ultimately the player. That information is used to develop best-in-class support plans for lottery customers through the delivery of products and services to retailers and players. Scientific Games has a multitude of games within each category of our Lottery Game Portfolio.
