A state lottery may finally become legal in Alabama this year, with tribal casino expansion plans offering to support a lottery, according to a Fantini Research report.

The National Legislative Preview, published by industry journal Fantini Research, reports that a $1bn offer from The Poarch Creek would see expansion for its casinos to include Class III gaming, which supports a state lottery.

The plan would promise $350m in projected tax revenue. The state is one of just five currently without a lottery, with legislation failing in the past two years.

The findings of the report also suggest a state-wide referendum is expected to allow casinos, racetracks and sports betting in Georgia, while Northern Virginia could get an additional $155m in tax revenue if legislation passes for a casino.

Sports betting is set to become available in Michigan within the next 12 months, after the state enacted legislation that legalizes sports wagering for both commercial and tribal casinos, which could serve as a model for others to follow.

Federal legislation has also been introduced to pave the way for tribes to offer online sports betting without violating the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. 

California could be set for change, with hearings set to begin later this month into a state-wide sports betting referendum.

A Horse Racing Integrity Act is being considered, which would create an independent anti-doping authority to oversee a nationwide drug control program for horse racing, with 53% participating in a Reuters survey supporting the move.

Fantini’s review, compiled by its public policy editor Laura Briggs, examines the key issues facing the gaming industry in 2020, with sports betting currently legal in 20 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, with another 15 states to launch operations.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) (“Everi” or “the Company”) announced today that it has extended its relationship with the New York Lottery for 10 additional years, pursuant to a new agreement to provide the New York Lottery with the video lottery central system through September 2029. Everi’s central system currently monitors and administers more than 17,000 Video Lottery Terminals (“VLTs”) installed at nine facilities across New York State. The Company will continue to earn a fixed percentage of the net revenue generated by the installed VLTs.

Robert Williams, Executive Director of the New York State Gaming Commission, said, “During the nearly 16 years that video lottery gaming has operated at racetracks across the State, the Commission has offered innovative gaming entertainment to players, which has provided a consistent source of funding for education in New York and distributed more than $250 billion in prizes. Through the management of their central system, Everi has been a contributor to that success as a valued technological partner. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with the company for the next 10 years.”

Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi, commented, “We are honored to be selected by New York State to continue to support the success of their video lottery gaming enterprise. With more than 150 billion individual player transactions made since beginning the operation of the central system for video lottery gaming across racetracks in the State nearly 16 years ago, we remain committed to providing a state-of-the-art system that helps make management of the New York VLTs seamless and secure. We are pleased the New York Lottery has once again made Everi their choice to help them achieve ongoing success from these operations during the next decade.”

“Securing this contract extension with the State of New York would not have been possible without the significant contributions of a number of organizations within Everi throughout the competitive bid process,” said Keith Riggs, Senior Vice President, Engineering, at Everi. “We are proud to have been awarded the contract and to have the opportunity to continue to put forth a trusted and reliable platform that serves as an important source of revenue for New York State. We believe this win is a testament to our innovative video lottery gaming central system.”

London – January 6, 2020: GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today announced the release of quarterly key performance indicators1 for the fourth quarter of 2019, highlighting continued YoY growth reflecting high demand for Internet sports betting and Internet casino gaming in both New Jersey and the State of Pennsylvania together with high demand in Indiana for Internet sports betting (launched during the quarter).

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

“Continued year on year growth rate experienced in Q4 demonstrates our Platform technology’s ability to scale successfully for our diverse clients of real money U.S. Internet gambling, Simulated Gaming as well as our long- standing Italian clients. The fourth quarter benefitted from strong seasonal demand during the American Football NFL season; cross-selling of U.S. sports bettors to Internet casino gaming in the States of New Jersey and Pennsylvania; and the launch of Internet sports betting in the State of Indiana.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights

This Quarterly publication discloses the Active Player-Days, Average Revenue Per Active Player-Day (ARPDAU) and Gross Operator Revenue, in which GAN participates worldwide in regulated real money Internet gambling markets and Simulated GamingTM.

  • Gross Operator Revenue2 increased 189.1% year over year and 49.3% quarter over quarter to $120.8 million. This change was driven by strong growth in real money regulated gambling in the U.S. and seasonal growth experienced in both Italy’s regulated gambling market and Simulated Gaming.

  • Active Player-Days3 at 9.0 million is an increase of 94.8% year over year and increase of 65.7% quarter over quarter.

With a population of 10.0 million (3.1% of the US population), the State of Michigan materially increases the number of Americans who will be permitted to gamble online. In total, 21.3% of Americans now live in States with legislation enabling Internet gambling. With Michigan's regulated Internet gambling market expected to commence in 2020, GAN is strongly positioned to serve Michigan casino operators in that State.

There are 26 casinos in Michigan comprising three commercial casinos in Detroit and a further 23 Native American casinos throughout the State. The Internet gambling market is forecast to generate $377 million in Gross Operator Revenue in the first 12 months of operations, increasing to $836 million in the fourth operating year (source: Regulus Partners, an International gambling consultancy).

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

"Including Michigan's population, 70 million Americans now enjoy laws enabling Internet gambling in their State. One year ago, Michigan passed legislation to regulate Internet gambling only for the former Governor to refuse to sign that bill into law. Yesterday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed HB 4311, and Michigan is now America's 13th State to regulate Internet gambling and, more importantly, the seventh State to regulate in 2019 alone. This reinforces our belief that the regulatory cycle for Internet gambling in the US will continue at a rapid pace into 2020 and beyond. This also signals States' increased appetite for enabling Internet casino gaming, as opposed to just Internet sports betting, in order to logically maximize the incremental State tax opportunity. GAN is the only fully licensed B2B-only platform vendor operating in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana with the requisite technical expertise and 'day one' experience in multiple US Internet gambling markets to credibly serve one or more of Michigan's 26 land-based casinos."

Leading gaming equipment made in Austria has a strong footprint in the Golden Palace Casino located in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France. This new casino belongs to the renowned Belgian Class II casinos operator Golden Palace Group, and opened in mid-2019, it welcomes guests to a state-of-the art gaming and dining offer.

The Golden Palace Group is Belgium’s leading operator in the Class II casinos segment, with an estate that comprises some 45 gaming halls and four sports betting shops across Belgium as well as a well-established online casino gaming and sports betting offer. Looking back on over 55 years of experience, the group owes its success the excellent quality of its products and services as well as a strong commitment to its social responsibilities. The latest addition to the Golden Palace business is a brand new land-based casino in France.

The new Golden Palace Casino is the group’s first live casino. It is located half an hour’s drive south of Calais, in Boulogne-sur-Mer, a major French fishing port and home to a well-developed fishing industry. The casino re-opened in July under the new Belgian management, boasting some 100 gaming machines and Roulette terminals as well as a broad offer of the most popular casino games, Roulette, Black Jack and Poker. 60 percent of the gaming equipment pertains to NOVOMATIC Winning Technology – in total 53 cabinets of the most modern variety as well as five Ainsworth machines. Guests, who fancy a break from gaming and like to enjoy excellent Belgian cuisine, are well advised to visit the casino’s restaurant ‘Mon cousin Belge’.

Featuring strongly in the slot floor are V.I.P. style machines like the V.I.P. Lounge™ 2.32, V.I.P. Lounge™ Curve 1.43 or the NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. Royal 2.65 – each with an integrated chair providing maximum comfort for the guests and a gaming choice that keeps them on the edge of their seats. The PANTHERA™ 2.27 offers players the CASH CONNECTION™ Link, and PANTHERA™ Curve 1.43 boasts the latest curve content in the NOVO LINE™ Interactive Concurve Edition 4 as well as a great variety of single games with titles such as Asian Dragon™ hot, Great American Wilds™, Voodoo Fortunes™ and many more. The GAMINATOR® Scorpion 2.24 rocks the floor with the THUNDER CASH™ Link and Superia-Games Premium Edition 2.

The ETG area of the Golden Palace Casino boasts a LOTUS ROULETTE™ Pro unit with six integrated player positions plus a NOVO LINE Novo Unity™ II installation for electronic Roulette with 14 connected EXECUTIVE SL™ terminals. Ainsworth features with the A600® and A640® cabinets with Mad Millions as well as the Super Charged 7S and Super Lite Vegas game mixes. Also, the myACP casino management system has been implemented at the casino with a number of modules and functionalities that facilitate the smooth and efficient casino operation in full compliance with the provisions of modern data processing regulations (GDPR), Anti-Money Laundering standards (AML) as well as the French Gaming Law.

Massimo Menegalli, President of Golden Palace: “Next to the quality NOVOMATIC is known for and which is one of the main reasons we are working with NOVOMATIC for years now in Belgium as distributor and operator, we are pleased to start working with them also in France. We are convinced that also the French customers will like these new gaming technologies. Furthermore, I was impressed by the speed and alertness with which NOVOMATIC helped us to furnish our Golden Palace casino in Boulogne-sur-Mer, we managed to this in two weeks’ time.”

David Rivière, General Director NOVOMATIC France adds: “It was a pleasure to support Golden Palace with their first casino project. We wish them every success and would like to say ‘Thank you’ for their trust and support.”

NOVOMATIC Key Account Director for Germany, BENELUX, Iceland, Portugal & France, Robert van Roosendaal said: “I would like to congratulate the Golden Palace Group on the elegant style and attractive gaming offer of their first casino operation. It is plain to see with how much proficiency and attention to detail this casino has been designed, and it is very gratifying that NOVOMATIC gaming equipment has been selected to feature with such a large number of units.”

LAS VEGAS and ATLANTA, Dec. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the "Company") announced that the Pennsylvania Lottery (the "Lottery") has awarded the Company a new contract for iLottery online/mobile games following a highly competitive procurement process. Scientific Games launched the Lottery's iLottery program in May 2018, and through the new contract will continue providing iLottery technology, online/mobile games and services for seven years with three additional one-year renewal options.

The Pennsylvania Lottery's iLottery program is the most commercially successful iLottery online/mobile launch in North America to date. Total sales for the Lottery's digital games topped $342 million as of May 2019, the one-year anniversary of the program. That mark significantly surpassed any previous iLottery launch in the industry's history, and hit $642 million in December 2019. The best-selling online/mobile games in Pennsylvania are MONSTER WINS, FOXIN' WINS and VOLCANO ERUPTION, with the GRUMPY CAT™ game debuting in April 2019 and quickly gaining popularity.

Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko said, "Our iLottery games have proven a fun, new way to play the Pennsylvania Lottery. Selling lottery online is a big part of our effort to modernize the lottery, appeal to new customers and meet our players where they already are, which is online, while generating new funds to benefit older Pennsylvanians. Sales of these new digital products as well as sales for our instant and draw-based games at Pennsylvania Lottery retailers grew beyond all expectations over the last year."

Svitko said that the Lottery has experienced another record-breaking year. With $4.5 billion in total retail sales led by $3 billion instant scratch game sales, fiscal year 2018-19 was its eighth consecutive year of more than $1 billion in transfers to benefit older Pennsylvanians.

"We thank the Pennsylvania Lottery for its trust in our iLottery technology, games and expertise to drive the most profits for programs benefitting older Pennsylvanians. Beyond the tremendous growth of instant and draw games, our iLottery partnership has generated significant incremental revenue. Scientific Games will continue to invest in innovation that keeps the Lottery relevant to consumers, and ultimately maximizes its returns to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania," said Pat McHugh, Chief Executive Lottery for Scientific Games.

The Company's new iLottery contract includes implementation, operation, maintenance and support of the iLottery solution and services, iLottery and web application, and web-based presence. Scientific Games also provides responsible gaming controls, a powerful Customer Relationship Management (CRM) suite and resources to enhance player engagement, and an innovative affiliate program that benefits Pennsylvania Lottery retailers. As part of the affiliate program, the Pennsylvania Lottery's more than 9,800 retailers are incentivized for every player they register for the iLottery program.

Scientific Games is also the current provider of the Pennsylvania Lottery's instant games as well as systems and retail technology. In 2018, the Pennsylvania Lottery ranked among the top 10 performing lotteries in the U.S. and the top 20 in the world (La Fleur's Almanac).

Scientific Games launched the world's first secure retail instant game in 1974, the first digital instant game in the U.S. in 2014, and is the leading provider of lottery interactive games, mobile apps, player loyalty programs and other interactive products and services in the U.S. lottery industry. The Company provides games, technology and services to more than 150 lotteries around the globe, including nearly every North American lottery.
