Scientific Games has launched a range of new eInstant games for Hungarian National Lottery operator Szerencsejáték.

The launch in Hungary expands Scientific Games’ digital lottery footprint to nearly 30 U.S. and international lotteries.

Szerencsejáték is one of the fastest-growing lotteries in Europe, with digital sales increasing 58% from 2018 to 2020 through collaboration with Scientific Games, and combined retail and digital sales increasing 17% from 2018 to 2020. Scientific Games also provides the Lottery with a sports betting programme, central gaming system and retail technology.

“Scientific Games is an important partner in our modernization efforts. The launch of our eInstant program last year has contributed to year-over-year growth. Our players are enjoying all of the new eInstant games, and we look forward to offering additional games throughout 2021 as part of our future sustainability and growth,” Gergely Koppány, Director of Game Development and Strategy at Szerencsejáték, said.

“We are excited to support Szerencsejáték’s modernization and financial goals with the continued launch of digital lottery games.
