“Now, we have restructured our strategic focus to position Scientific Games in the next era and our growth paths to position Scientific Games in the global leader digital and sports to support our customers responsible driving revenues for their beneficiary programmes.”
Scientific Games has launched its Loteria augmented-reality game extension. It also describes itself as an “industry-state-of-the art” player loyalty system for Missouri Lottery.

Bergette has more than 35 years of experience in the lottery industry, as well as in various digital programs. She assumes a variety of new responsibilities in her new role, including managing the games studios, customer accounts, and delivering digital solutions.
