Scientific Games Corporation is one of the most diverse suppliers for all things related to gaming and betting. Lotteries, sports betting, horse racing, online casino games, land based terminals and cabinets, social gaming, the list is endless. With annual revenue exceeding $3 billion, the NASDAQ listed company is one of the heavyweights in the global gaming industry.
The history of Scientific Games goes back to their foundation year 1973 when they introduced the first secure instant lottery game. These were counterfeit-proof scratch cards that could be sold at lottery shops in the entire USA. Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, their initial focus was on sports betting and lottery games. Only decades later did they enter the market for casino games with the acquisition of companies like Barcrest, WMS, Bally Technologies and Shuffle Master, which they incorporated into their subsidiary SG Interactive.
The internet age saw them shifting a large part of their focus to online gaming and betting. More recently they acquired Red 7 Mobile and the NYX Gaming Group. Today, they are one of the world’s leading supplier of computerized and mechanical slot machines, table games, iGaming and iLottery products, instant lottery games, lottery gaming systems, terminals and services, server-based interactive gambling terminals, gambling control systems, social gaming, and sports betting.
In 2018, they bundled all their subsidiaries for online casino games from their own arm SG Interactive and from the newly acquired NYX Gaming Group as well as those for digital gaming and sports betting technology into SG Digital. The group has at present a total of nine game studios across three continents: Bally, Barcrest, NYX Gaming Group (BetDigital, NextGen Gaming, Side City Studios), Red 7 Mobile, Shuffle Master and Williams Interactive (WMS).
Some of their most popular games are 300 Shields, Raging Rhino, Super Monopoly Money, Montezuma, Rainbow Riches, Wild Times, Valhalla and Zeus. Anyone, who has been a few times to land based casinos in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia will have played at least once on some of their slots. Many of them such as Raging Rhino and Rainbow Riches have achieved legendary status among the slotting community.
