Scientific Games and Blue Ribbon Partner to Offer Game Expanding Features on Open Gaming System Content
LAS VEGAS – July 12, 2019 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) and Blue Ribbon have partnered to offer jackpots via the Company’s Foundation Innovation platform and Open Gaming System (OGS™) content aggregation platform.
The OGSTM has quickly become one of the industry’s most powerful two-sided distribution platforms. With almost 2500 games from studios worldwide, OGSTM is connected to over 200 operators across every major regulated market.
The partnership sees Blue Ribbon provide their cutting-edge jackpots marketing platform to any OGSTM content, packaged in a seamless overlay. For the first time this will give Scientific Games’ partners the capabilities to control the jackpot as a true marketing tool and will make it easy for players to enjoy a new gaming experience tailor made for them. Blue Ribbon will give OGSTM partners an innovative way to engage better with their players and to offer a new set of incentives tools which will improve both player acquisition and retention.
Dylan Slaney, SVP Casino and Platforms for SG Digital, the interactive division of Scientific Games, said: “We’re starting to finalise our full portfolio of casino content and technology under the umbrella of ‘Open Casino,’ which includes our player account, our Open Gaming System, the world’s best content and now, new revolutionary features such as missions, tournaments and jackpots. Combining platform scale, ground-breaking content and feature innovation is where the magic will happen for player experiences. Blue Ribbon is known industry-wide for their innovative game functionality. Pairing their jackpot innovation with our world-leading OGSTM platform is the perfect combination, bringing players new ways to enjoy our games with an added layer of game-expanding features. We’re thrilled to work with Blue Ribbon as we prepare the launch of our Open Casino portfolio.”
Amir Askarov, CEO for Blue Ribbon, said: “Scientific Games is one of the leading gaming platform providers in our industry, and we’re excited to enable our unique player engagement platform on their OGSTM platform.
