Islensk Getspa, Scientific Games Launch Successful Conversion

18 Jul 2005

ICELAND – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Islensk Getspa announced today that the largest system conversion in Iceland's history was successfully launched on July 5th, 2005. In six months Scientific Games (Nasdaq: SGMS) designed and implemented a new modern and technologically advanced online gaming system that will run over the seven-year life of the contract.

"We are extremely pleased to provide a state-of-the-art online lottery system that meets the needs of Islensk Getspa as it seeks to expand and modernize for the benefit of the Icelandic people," said Scientific Games Systems President, Bill Huntley. "Scientific Games appreciates the Islensk Getspa selection and we look forward to continuing our relationship with a dedicated and highly regarded partner."

The system in Iceland comprises over 300 new EXTREMA terminals and an integrated central system with advanced software specifically for Iceland. A future project phase will add over 130 new STAN terminals that will allow customer self-service play of online games as well as real-time credit card processing from the terminals.

"Scientific Games is a proven partner in the lottery industry, and has delivered a modern gaming system that provides new, cutting-edge touch screen terminals, enhanced ease of use and speed, along with the capacity to play new and exciting games in the dynamic Scandinavian market," stated Bergsveinn Sampsted, the Managing Director of Islensk Getspa. "We are especially happy that Scientific Games was responsive to our particular needs including completing the conversion in a compressed period of time and also to connect to our internet sales system where we can now sell all of our lotto and sport games." In addition, Bergsveinn stated, "The new system will also enable us to implement new products into the market faster than before, which is crucial in the fast moving Scandinavian market that has already faced a heavy competition from internet based companies."
