The Scientific Games Corporation, popularly known as Scientific Games or SG, has announced the first test for the innovative self-service ticket selling tech with its proprietary PlayCentral HD product. Saxony’s lottery, the Sachsenlotto, which is recognized for piloting modernization upgrades to enrich its lottery offering and player experience, has already placed a couple of PlayCentral HD lotto vending cabinets across different preliminary sites, such as retailers, malls and, of course, the store at the Saxony’s Lottery HQ.
The newly installed ticket vending gear will allow the use of debit cards as a payment option. Besides, they will sell Sachsenlotto scratch-offs, which lately have turned out to be the most flourishing lotto games not only in the Saxony state but all across Germany. There’s no other state lottery in Germany that provides self-service vending services for instant tickets.
The PlayCentral machines HD are tailor-made for the Sachsenlotto, and they come complete with age verification to comply with responsible betting conditions, in addition to the payment card technology incorporated with the Lotto’s payment service provider.
Currently, Scientific Games boasts of supplying more than 12,000 self-service vending machines globally. This comprises various PlayCentral versions, which, besides being custom-made for quality and size, include a seamless player check-out experience that’s similar to online shopping. So far, the company has been supplying Sachsenlotto with its world-class lottery instant games and vendor point-of-sale tech for over 25 years.
To top it all off, Scientific Games supplies all 16 German state lotteries and over 150 lotteries worldwide with games, technology and services. The company’s products make over 70% of instant lotto game retail sales worldwide.
