Scientific Games awarded Ukrainian lottery contract

20 September 2007

NEW YORK -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Scientific Games (Nasdaq: SGMS) announced that it has been awarded a contract with MSL, the largest Ukrainian Lottery, to supply instant tickets and cooperative services. The contract begins in April 2008 and will run for five years, with options to extend for additional one-year increments. The company will handle the manufacturing and distribution of instant tickets throughout Ukraine, including shipping, warehousing, telemarketing, distribution and will advise on game design and marketing issues as well as support on retail network optimization and expansion. Revenues to Scientific Games will be based on a percentage of sales. MSL currently operates 10 lotteries in Ukraine, spanning a population of 47 million people and approximately 16,000 retailers.

"We are proud to become a partner of the Ukrainian Lottery through MSL," said Lorne Weil, Chairman and CEO of Scientific Games. "We look forward to growing instant ticket sales throughout MSL's large network of retailers in the spring of 2008. Ukraine is widely considered one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and we hope to grow funds for charitable causes at a similar pace."

"After witnessing Scientific Games' success in other European countries, we realized Scientific Games would be the perfect partner to help grow instant ticket sales in the Ukraine," said Georgiy Lozhenko, President of MSL. "MSL has a history of cooperating with well-known foreign and domestic companies and we believe Scientific Games will help MSL continue to be a strong leader and take our lottery to the next level."
