Scientific Games Corporation announced that it has signed a contract with the West Virginia Lottery to supply the Company's latest Central Monitoring and Control System, Connexus. The new system will monitor approximately 14,000 gaming machines in more than 1,350 licensed Limited Video Lottery locations and five casinos throughout the State of West Virginia. This technically sophisticated, next-generation system will replace Scientific Games' AEGIS video system and provide real-time monitoring of security events and financial meters and verify that only properly certified software is running on all gaming machines connected to the system.
John Myers, acting director of the West Virginia Lottery, said, "After a thorough and competitive procurement process, the selection of Scientific Games and their Connexus system allows us to provide both our licensed retailers and casinos with a modern monitoring and accounting platform that we feel confident will meet the current and future needs of our stakeholders."
Scientific Games is recognized for its innovation, leading entertainment products and global security. In addition to Connexus, the Company's comprehensive portfolio includes gaming machines, game content and systems; table games products and shufflers, instant and draw-based lottery games, as well as server-based lottery and gaming systems; sports betting technology; player loyalty and rewards programs; and interactive content and services.
"The West Virginia Lottery takes its role of ensuring the integrity, security and viability of West Virginia's gaming business very seriously," said Gavin Isaacs, president & CEO, Scientific Games Corporation. "Being chosen to deploy our next-generation Connexus system is a tribute to the very high standards by which the West Virginia Lottery operates and the powerful, yet cost efficient and flexible attributes of the Connexus system."
