Danske Spil migrates to Scientific Games

20 November 2017

Danish state-owned operator Danske Spil has migrated to a new gaming system supplied by Scientific Games.

The conversion from the Danish Lottery's legacy system to the new system went live earlier this year and will support Danske Spil's multi-channel environment.

Scientific Games will also provide 24-hour a day systems’ operations from fully redundant European centralised data centres.

Having won the competitively bid gaming systems contract from an incumbent supplier, Scientific Games said that the conversion will significantly advance the Lottery's retail, web and mobile channels.

“We knew that we were looking for a flexible, channel-agnostic system for our Lottery; our strategy for the lottery market is aggressive and progressive, and a new system is a core part of that strategy,” Danske Spil chief executive Susanne Mørch Koch said.

“We need our technology platforms to be scalable, so that we can ramp up or down and add hardware components that would not require replacing the entire system, this has been a must-have requirement for our new lottery solution.”

Pat McHugh, senior vice-resident, global lottery systems at Scientific Games, added: “There is a great deal of excitement and collaboration surrounding this conversion, as we expand our support to welcome Danske Spil to the Scientific Games’ lottery systems family.

“Scientific Games has aligned with Danske Spil's business goals to deliver our most advanced, open architecture system in Denmark with flexible, scalable technology that will support the Lottery's growth.”
