Scientific Games Selected by Delaware Lottery as Primary Vendor with 888 to 
Operate Internet Gaming Systems and Services 
Recommended as internet gaming provider for the first U.S. state to implement 
comprehensive intrastate iGaming including poker, slots and bingo; Williams 
Interactive to provide game content 
NEW YORK, May 3, 2013 /CNW/ - 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 
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.
