Electronic Draw Games Will Launch for the First Time in Ecuador
ATLANTA – July 21, 2022 – Lotería Nacional de Ecuador, the Ecuador National Lottery, has awarded a new, 10-year contract to Scientific Games that includes instant games, lottery systems, retail technology, and a draw-based lottery game system that will launch Ecuador’s first-ever electronic draw games.
Jorge Medina, General Manager of Lotería Nacional de Ecuador, said, "We are very pleased to extend our excellent relationship with Scientific Games through an instant game contract that includes new technology and enables us to launch a new mode of instant and draw-based lottery games for the enjoyment of our players, and ultimately generate more funds to support our causes in Ecuador.”
