SG Signs Two U.K. Deals

Scientific Games Corporation announced it has reached an agreement with two casino companies in the United Kingdom.

SG has signed an agreement with the Rank Group Plc. to supply Rank with its Operator Wide Area Progressive System for table games at its casinos in the United Kingdom.

It will be the world’s largest table-game wide-area progressive jackpot to be offered by a single operator.

The Rank Group, which is the largest casino group in Europe, chose Scientific Games as its preferred business partner to install the WAP system on its blackjack tables. The initial rollout covers 21 tables in 10 casinos across the U.K., with 86 more progressive tables to be installed by the end of this year.

Overall, the progressive jackpot will be offered on 107 tables in 53 properties, a world record in table-game progressives.

In addition, SG Gaming announced a major new four-year agreement to provide server-based terminals to Talarius adult gaming centers in the U.K.  

 Under the agreement, SG Gaming will provide its fully integrated server-based gaming platform across an additional 92 Talarius adult gaming centers (AGC), taking the total number of SG Gaming’s server-based terminals to around 500 across the Talarius estate. The rollout will begin this month, delivering a range of Clarity and T8 terminals to all sites.

The agreement was reached following the completion of a successful trial across a number of sites in the Talarius estate. With SG Gaming terminals already installed in Talarius venues across the U.K., the rollout represents the conversion of these terminals to the server-based gaming platform, along with the installation of arcade customized Clarity terminals and the additional purchase of T8 terminals.
