SG wins three top honors at Global Gaming Awards

Scientific Games on Tuesday announced it had received three top honors from the 4th Annual Global Gaming Awards in Las Vegas, including the highly-coveted "Land-based Supplier of the Year" Award.  

Voted upon by 60 judges from across the global industry, the prestigious "Land-based Supplier of the Year" Award recognizes the best land-based gaming supplier for product and services innovation.

The judges also awarded 2nd Place for "Land-based Product of the Year" to Scientific Games for its WILLY WONKA GOLDEN TICKET multi-state linked instant game, created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products. The award honors the equipment, technologies and features that have enhanced the gaming experience.

Launched by 12 U.S. lotteries thus far, with four more on the way, WILLY WONKA GOLDEN TICKET has topped $328 million in retail sales and nearly two million online second-chance entries (as of October 6, 2017).

Additionally, Scientific Games' Secret Santa Second-Chance Drawings promotion created for the Pennsylvania Lottery, received third place in the 2017 "Digital Product of the Year" category, which recognizes the features or innovations that have improved the interactive gaming sector. The holiday promotion topped $40 million in retail sales in Pennsylvania, setting an industry record for 15.8 million online entries -- 65 percent through the mobile app.  

"We are honored to accept these three awards from our esteemed gaming industry colleagues. This recognition reflects the 100 percent commitment to innovation our company has strived for this past year," said, Kevin Sheehan, chief executive officer at Scientific Games.
