Scientific Games announces entry into Ukrainian market

Scientific Games Corporation has made its way into the Ukrainian market, rolling out its broad range of slots and real-money games titles into the country with the help of partner operators.

SG officially enters Ukrainian market

The Deal: One of the gaming industry’s conglomerates has successfully penetrated Eastern Europe after securing necessary licenses and certification to market their products in the country.  

The Products: Scientific Games will be supplying its Ukraine-facing operators with electronic gaming machines, tables, and progressive jackpots. Prior to its entry, the gaming giant struck several deals with notable casinos in the jurisdiction, including Slots City, Storm Ukraine, and Billionaire Casino. The company revealed its intention to offer its products to other operators in the coming months. 

SG’s Twinstar Matrix Upright cabinet, Twinstar Slant cabinet and Twinstar J43 vertical screen cabinets will be making their debuts on the casino floor of the properties mentioned. These cabinets offer a diverse range of content, which has generated substantial numbers in other European markets. Once SG completes all integration phases, Ukrainian customers will gain access to a slew of exciting slot games. Asian Link themes Duo Fu Duo Cai and Jin Ji Bao Xi and updated versions of Super Colossal Reels Spartacus Gladiator of Rome will also become available in this market.

The Objective: SG’s global expansion has exploded over the past few years, establishing a market foothold in emerging markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Industry observers link the group’s entry into Ukraine to its ambitious goal of controlling a fair share of the world’s gaming market.
