Scientific Games today announced an all-new ilottery game, Monopoly Property Payout, featuring the number-one licensed brand in the lottery industry and including a progressive jackpot, all wrapped up in a fun, simulated- 3D experience. The game will debut at the North American Association of State & Provincial Lotteries 2023 Conference to be held October 30 to November 2 in Milwaukee.

Created by the company’s team of 100% lottery-focused game designers at SG Studios, Monopoly Property Payout is a new addition to the company’s ilottery portfolio of more than 185 licensed and recognizable brands and more than 150 different e-instant games. SG Studios develops games in 10 languages for lotteries around the world, including the Pennsylvania Lottery, which will be the first to launch Monopoly Property Payout  later this year.

“We’ve built an ilottery game showcasing the iconic elements of the Monopoly brand that players across the globe know and love. The simulated 3D game board offers an immersive Monopoly game play experience that stays true to the brand. Players can unlock multiple themed bonus rounds, such as Chance and Free Parking, along with special features where players have the chance to win cash prizes,” said Steve Hickson, VP of Digital Games for Scientific Games.

The innovative three-dimensional game layout is an evolution of the connect-style ilottery game mechanic. The progressive jackpot adds a level of excitement and anticipation for players as the jackpot continues to grow in real time while they play. SG Studios is well advanced with the planning of a second Monopoly ilottery game that has the potential to be offered as a linked-progressive jackpot series, with both games contributing to the same jackpot.

Eugene Evans, Senior Vice President of Digital Strategy and Licensing for Hasbro, said: “The Monopoly brand continues to demonstrate its strength in attracting fans to our partners from analog to digital, from Monopoly Go! on mobile to this new expression in ilottery from our long-time partner Scientific Games.”

The Monopoly Property Payout game is available via the new SG Content Hub, which offers one-stop frictionless access to multiple ilottery game studios and integrates seamlessly with a lottery’s existing gaming systems and ilottery technology.

Scientific Games collaborates closely with lotteries to plan and manage successful ilottery portfolios, along with assisting in game studio contract negotiations, pain-free studio integrations, and billing, creating an entirely streamlined digital content management process.

“Our goal is to apply Scientific Games’s 50 years of lottery experience in game portfolio management to help lotteries build dynamic high-performing ilottery programs from SG Studios and other hand-picked innovative studios worldwide,” said Hickson. “We’re setting the global standard for the highest quality lottery games coupled with seamless content delivery that meets and often exceeds responsible gaming standards.”

One of the first companies to be certified by the World Lottery Association as a responsible-gaming supplier, Scientific Games provides retail and digital games, technology, analytics and services to 130 lotteries in 50 countries around the globe.
