Scientific Games has been named the primary instant games partner for Loto-Québec. A new five-year contract significantly expands the number of instant scratch games the company will design and produce locally for Loto-Québec players. Scientific Games recently invested millions of dollars to advance production technologies
and innovation at its Québec facility.

The company has been a supplier for more than five decades to Loto-Québec, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. Scientific Games is certified globally by the World Lottery Association as a Responsible Gaming Supplier.

“Scientific Games is a longstanding Loto-Québec business partner and employer in Québec. The company’s leaders understand what we are trying to accomplish by creating new instant-game entertainment for our players. They also support us in creating greener scratch games to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Isabelle Jean, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Lotteries at Loto-Québec.

“We have made a significant investment in production technologies at our Montreal facility to innovate new games for the enjoyment of Québec players and support the lottery in its mission,” said John Schulz, President, Americas & Global Instant Products for Scientific Games. “With five instant-game production facilities on four continents, our global scale allows us to support Loto-Québec and all of our customers.”

Scientific Games has produced more than 4,500 instant games for Loto-Québec at its Montreal facility over the past 50 years, including the Lottery’s very first game. The facility also produces games for four Canadian provincial lotteries and the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation, as well as lotteries in the U.S., France, Hungary, Australia, and other countries.

Scientific Games is the world’s largest instant-games creator, producer, and services provider, and the primary provider to nine of the Top 10 performing instant-game lotteries in the world (La Fleur’s 2022 World Lottery Almanac). The company’s products generate more than 70% of global instant game retail sales.

Scientific Games provides games, technology and services to 130 lotteries in 50 countries around the globe, including nearly every North American lottery.
