PR Newswire

NEW YORK, May 2, 2013

NEW YORK, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Scientific Games Corporation (Nasdaq:
SGMS) today announced that it has been selected with its partners as the
primary vendor team to operate Internet Gaming Systems and Services for the
Delaware State Lottery, subject to successful contract negotiations.

Scientific Games teamed with 888 Holdings (LSE: 888) and Williams Interactive
LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc. (NYSE: WMS), to provide
a full turnkey solution for the gaming platform, content, and operational
services using advanced responsible gaming tools and sophisticated player
tracking, in response to the Delaware State Lottery's Internet Gaming System
and Services request for proposal (RFP). The RFP includes internet poker,
casino table games, and video lottery games.

This joint effort combines 888's decade-long experience being at the forefront
of the online gaming industry with Scientific Games' proven ability to provide
added value, turnkey solutions to government-sponsored (B2G) and commercial
(B2B) gaming operators and Williams Interactive's premium iGaming products and
services.

The Lottery evaluation committee's recommendation followed a competitive
selection process designed to identify service providers best suited to serve
the needs of the Delaware Lottery. The contract will be for an initial term
of five years and includes four additional one-year contract extension
options.

Delaware became the first U.S. state to implement comprehensive intrastate
iGaming including poker, slots and bingo when the General Assembly passed the
Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act of 2012 in June 2012. Delaware has long
been an industry model for state regulated gaming. This is another example of
Delaware's leadership in protecting state-sponsored gaming rights to maximize
proceeds for its citizens. The Delaware Lottery will be the sole regulator of
real-money internet gaming for the State with the games branded and marketed
through the State's three casinos. The State plans to launch internet games
this year.

Lotteries are increasingly pursuing opportunities to develop additional
revenue sources for their good causes. This joint effort to support the
Delaware Lottery's expansion into internet gaming is a prime example of the
synergies that can be achieved by Scientific Games' pending acquisition of
WMS, as previously announced on January 31, 2013. Completion of the
transaction remains subject to approvals by WMS stockholders and gaming
regulatory authorities and other customary closing conditions.
