The related results of operations are presented as discontinued operations in the Company's financial statements for all periods presented. All financial results referenced in this press release are for continuing operations only, unless otherwise noted. Recently Executed Contracts New Contracts: oNorthstar New Jersey Lottery Group ("Northstar New Jersey"), a joint venture in which Scientific Games owns an approximate 18% equity interest, signed a long-term contract to provide marketing and sales services for the New Jersey Lottery until 2029. Under separate supply agreements, Scientific Games and GTECH will provide Northstar New Jersey with instant lottery games, lottery systems and equipment, and related services. Scientific Games is expected to have a 30% economic interest (and to be responsible for 30% of the capital requirements) associated with these supply arrangements. oThe Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund signed a 12-year concession agreement with the consortium in which Scientific Games is a participant, for the exclusive rights to the production, operation, circulation, promotion and management of the Greek State Lotteries; Scientific Games has a 16.5% equity interest in the consortium and will have exclusive responsibility for instant ticket design and production; commencement of operations under the new concession is subject to Greek parliamentary and competition authority approvals oLottery systems contract with the Hungarian State Lottery to provide next-generation central system hardware and software, additional lottery terminals and related services oInstant ticket cooperative services ("CSP") contract with Loteria Electronica Internacional Dominicana S.A.

Lorne Weil commented. "In addition to benefitting from strong U.S. lottery retail sales, we won a number of new contracts and extensions and have made significant progress on our pending acquisition of WMS. The New Jersey Lottery's award of a marketing and sales services contract to our joint venture reflects our success in demonstrating to lotteries how our industry-leading instant game management and other lottery outsourcing programs may help improve lottery performance. We are also pleased with the progress we continue to make in our planning for the successful integration of WMS, while both companies remain focused on serving our respective customers and securing future business." Jeffrey S. Lipkin, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "Our solid second quarter results reflected the benefits of our diverse, participation-based business model and the strength of our core businesses. We are focused on executing on our numerous recent contract wins, several of which we expect will be reflected in our results beginning later this year, and continuing to prepare for the closing of the WMS acquisition. We are pleased that we achieved several key milestones to the closing, including WMS stockholder approval and the successful syndication of our term loan to finance the transaction. We are also continuing to make good progress in the gaming regulatory approval process, with approvals received in a number of jurisdictions, and we remain on track for a fall closing. Importantly, we believe we have the right framework in place to successfully integrate WMS with Scientific Games to create a world-class global lottery and gaming company and deliver on the expected synergies." Business Update The Company's second quarter results reflected the strong performance of its core lottery businesses. The instant ticket and draw game retail sales of the Company's U.S. customers increased 4.9% and 10.8%, respectively, during the quarter. Instant ticket sales continued to be propelled by strong performance in larger states, while draw sales benefited from a record Powerball^® jackpot of $591 million in the quarter. In Italy, instant ticket retail sales decreased 2.4% in the second quarter compared to the prior-year period, a comparable percentage decrease relative to the year-over-year percentage decrease in the first quarter of 2013. While instant ticket sales appear to have been impacted in part by continued challenging economic conditions in Italy, we believe we are seeing some signs of stabilization. In China, instant ticket retail sales declined 7.6% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior-year period, which we believe is primarily due to competition from other lottery products that is impacting instant ticket sales. The Company's U.K. gaming business faced challenging year-over-year comparisons against strong gross win levels in the prior-year period. Additionally, economic conditions in the U.K. affected player activity and gross win across all betting shops. While we had been able to grow this business in 2012 despite the economic backdrop, our gross win per terminal decreased modestly in the first two quarters of 2013, with gross win per terminal down 2.2% year-over-year in the second quarter. However, as anticipated, the Company is seeing a positive response from players as it continues to roll out new Infinity2 gaming terminals with enhanced functionality to Gala Coral. Revenue and profitability of the gaming business outside the U.K. were negatively affected by specific issues impacting two customers that the Company has been working to resolve. Significant progress was made during the second quarter toward completing the Company's pending acquisition of WMS, as WMS' stockholders approved the acquisition and the Company successfully syndicated the term loan acquisition financing. The Company also continues to make meaningful progress in securing the required gaming regulatory approvals. Key executives of both companies are leading the detailed integration planning efforts, which are focused on positioning the Company to realize the acquisition's expected scale benefits and synergy opportunities that have been previously outlined. The completion of the WMS acquisition remains subject to the approval of gaming regulatory authorities and other customary closing conditions. In connection with the pending WMS acquisition, the Company incurred regulatory costs, professional fees and other expenses totaling approximately $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2013, with additional transaction-related fees and expenses anticipated to be incurred throughout the balance of 2013.

("WMS") As previously announced on January 31, 2013, Scientific Games entered into an agreement to acquire WMS for $26.00 in cash per common share, or approximately $1.5 billion in the aggregate. WMS' stockholders approved the proposed merger at a special stockholders' meeting on May 10, 2013, which satisfied a key condition to closing. On May 22, 2013, Scientific Games successfully completed the syndication of a contemplated $2.3 billion term loan facility that, together with a previously syndicated $300 million revolving credit facility, is expected to comprise the financing necessary to complete the merger. Scientific Games has also received notice from the Federal Trade Commission of early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 in connection with the merger, which satisfied the related closing condition. Completion of the transaction remains subject to approvals by gaming regulatory authorities and customary closing conditions. Scientific Games and WMS have filed applications (or otherwise provided the required documentation or information) in each of the approximately 50 jurisdictions where gaming regulatory approval is a condition to closing or have received confirmation that receipt of such approval is not required prior to closing, with approvals received in a number of jurisdictions. The Company expects the transaction to close in the fall of 2013. However, no assurance can be given that the merger will be completed.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Attributable EBITDA, as used herein, is based on the definition of "consolidated EBITDA" in our credit agreement (summarized below), except that attributable EBITDA as used herein includes our share of the EBITDA of all of our equity investments (whereas "consolidated EBITDA" for purposes of the credit agreement generally includes our share of the EBITDA of our Italian joint venture but only the income of our other equity investments to the extent it has been distributed to us). Attributable EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is presented herein as a supplemental disclosure and is reconciled to net income (loss) in a schedule below. Attributable EBITDA includes adjustments only to the extent contemplated by the definition of "consolidated EBITDA" in our credit agreement (which adjustments are summarized in the paragraph below). For purposes of calculating our financial ratios under the credit agreement, consolidated EBITDA is calculated over a trailing period of four consecutive fiscal quarters and more recent adjustments may replace older adjustments within such four-quarter period, subject to any caps specified in the credit agreement with respect to particular categories of adjustments (as discussed below). Accordingly, the aggregate amount of any such adjustments within a particular category reported in our quarterly earnings releases over a four-quarter period may exceed such cap over such period (but will not exceed such cap in any particular quarter). Note that the adjustment referred to in clause (9) in the paragraph below was added to the definition of "consolidated EBITDA" as part of the March 11, 2011 amendment to our credit agreement and revised as part of the August 25, 2011 amendment to our credit agreement. "Consolidated EBITDA" means, for any period, "consolidated net income" as defined in the credit agreement (i.e., generally our consolidated net income (or loss) excluding the income (or deficit) of our equity investments (other than our Italian joint venture) except to the extent that such income has been distributed to us) for such period plus, to the extent deducted in calculating such consolidated net income for such period, the sum of (1) income tax expense, (2) depreciation and amortization expense, (3) interest expense (other than any interest expense of our Italian joint venture in respect of debt for borrowed money of such joint venture if such debt exceeds $25,000,000 in the aggregate), (4) amortization or write-off of debt discount and debt issuance costs and commissions, discounts and other fees and charges associated with debt (see line item captioned "Debt-Related Fees and Charges" in the schedules below), (5) amortization of intangibles (including goodwill) and organization costs (see line item captioned "Amortization of Intangibles" in the schedules below), (6) earn-out payments with respect to certain acquisitions that we have made or any other "permitted acquisitions" (generally, acquisitions of companies that are primarily engaged in the same or related line of business and that become subsidiaries of ours, or acquisitions of all or substantially all of the assets of another company or division or business unit of another company), including any loss or expense with respect to such earn-out payments (see line item captioned "Earn-Outs for Permitted Acquisitions" in the schedules below), (7) extraordinary charges or losses determined in accordance with GAAP, (8) non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, (9) any cash compensation expense incurred but not paid in such period so long as no cash payment in respect thereof is made or required to be made prior to the scheduled maturity of the borrowings under the credit agreement (provided that up to $993,000 of non-cash compensation expense accrued prior to August 25, 2011 may be added back notwithstanding that cash payments may be required to be made in respect thereof prior to the scheduled maturity of the borrowings) (see line item captioned "Deferred Contingent Compensation Expense" in the schedules below), (10) up to $3,000,000 of expenses, charges or losses resulting from certain Peru investments (see line item captioned "Peru Investment Expenses, Charges or Losses" in the schedules below), (11) the non-cash portion of any non-recurring write-offs or write-downs as required in accordance with GAAP (see line item captioned "Non-Recurring Write-Offs under GAAP" in the schedules below), (12) advisory fees and related expenses paid to advisory firms in connection with "permitted acquisitions" (see line item captioned "Acquisition Advisory Fees" in the schedules below), (13) certain specified "permitted add-backs" (i.e., (A) up to $15,000,000 (less the amount of certain permitted pro forma adjustments to "consolidated EBITDA" in connection with material acquisitions) of charges incurred during any 12-month period in connection with (i) reductions in workforce, (ii) contract losses, discontinued operations, shutdown expenses and cost reduction initiatives, (iii) transaction expenses incurred in connection with potential acquisitions and divestitures, whether or not consummated, and (iv) restructuring charges and transaction expenses incurred in connection with certain transactions with Playtech Limited or its affiliates, and (B) reasonable and customary costs incurred in connection with amendments to the credit agreement) (see line item captioned "Specified Permitted Add-Backs" in the schedules below) (provided that the foregoing items (1) through (13) do not include write-offs or write-downs of accounts receivable or inventory and, except with respect to "permitted add-backs", any write-off or write-down to the extent it is in respect of cash payments to be made in a future period), (14) to the extent treated as an expense in the period paid or incurred, certain payments, costs and obligations made or incurred by us in connection with any award of a concession to operate the instant ticket lottery in Italy, including any up-front fee required under the applicable tender process (see line item captioned "Italian Concession Obligations" in the schedules below), (15) restructuring charges, transaction expenses and shutdown expenses incurred in connection with the disposition of all or part of our racing and venue management businesses, together with any charges incurred in connection with discontinued operations and cost-reduction initiatives associated with such disposition, in an aggregate amount (for all periods combined) not to exceed $7,325,000 (see line item captioned "Racing Disposition Charges and Expenses" in the schedules below) and (16) up to 5,250,000 pounds Sterling during any four-quarter period of expenses or charges incurred in connection with the payment of license royalties or other fees to Playtech Limited or its affiliates and for software services provided to Global Draw or Games Media by Playtech Limited or its affiliates (see line item captioned "Playtech Royalties and Fees" in the schedules below), minus, to the extent included in the statement of such consolidated net income for such period, the sum of (1) interest income, (2) extraordinary income or gains determined in accordance with GAAP and (3) income or gains with respect to earn-out payments with respect to acquisitions referred to above (see line item captioned "Income on Earn-Outs for Permitted Acquisitions" in the schedules below), provided that the aggregate amount of "consolidated EBITDA" that is attributable to the Company's interest in its Italian joint venture that would not have otherwise been permitted to be included in "consolidated EBITDA" prior to giving effect to the March 11, 2011 amendment to the credit agreement will be capped at $25,000,000 in any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters (or $30,000,000 in the case of any such period ending on or prior to June 30, 2012). "Consolidated EBITDA" is also subject to certain adjustments in connection with material acquisitions and dispositions as provided in the credit agreement. The foregoing definitions of "consolidated net income" and "consolidated EBITDA" are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such definitions in our credit agreement, which was amended and restated on August 25, 2011, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 31, 2011. Free cash flow, as included herein, represents net cash provided by operating activities less total capital expenditures (which includes lottery and gaming systems expenditures and other intangible assets and software expenditures). Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that is presented herein as a supplemental disclosure and is reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities in a schedule below. EBITDA from equity investments, as included herein, represents our share of EBITDA from equity investments, which is defined as equity in earnings from our equity investments (whether or not any such earnings have been distributed to us) plus income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense and interest (income) expense, net of other. EBITDA from equity investments is a non-GAAP financial measure that is presented herein as a supplemental disclosure and is reconciled to earnings from equity investments in a schedule below. The Company's management uses the foregoing non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures to: monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company's business operations, as well as the performance of its equity investments, which have become a more significant part of the Company's business; facilitate management's internal comparisons of the Company's historical operating performance of its business operations; facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; review and assess the operating performance of the Company's management team; analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments. Accordingly, the Company's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors to provide them with disclosures of the Company's operating results on the same basis as that used by the Company's management. In addition, the Company's management believes that attributable EBITDA is helpful in assessing the overall operating performance of the Company and its equity investments and highlighting trends in the Company's and its equity investees' core businesses that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures, because this non-GAAP financial measure eliminates from the Company's and its equity investees' earnings financial items that management believes have less bearing on the Company's and its equity investees' performance, such as income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense and interest (income) expense. Moreover, management believes attributable EBITDA is useful to investors because a significant and increasing amount of the Company's business is through its equity investments. Management further believes that attributable EBITDA and free cash flow provide useful information regarding the Company's liquidity and its ability to service debt and fund investments. Management believes that EBITDA from equity investments is helpful in monitoring the financial performance of the Company's equity investments and eliminates from the equity investees' earnings financial items that management believes have less bearing on the equity investments' performance. The Company's management also believes attributable EBITDA is useful to investors because the definition is derived from the definition of "consolidated EBITDA" in our credit agreement, which is used to calculate the Company's compliance with the financial covenants contained in the credit agreement. Moreover, attributable EBITDA and free cash flow (calculated by subtracting total capital expenditures (which includes lottery and gaming systems expenditures and other intangible assets and software expenditures) from attributable EBITDA) are metrics used in determining performance-based bonuses (subject to certain additional adjustments in the discretion of the Compensation Committee (e.g., to take into account changes in applicable accounting rules during the year)). Accordingly, the Company's management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, provides both management and investors with financial information that can be useful in assessing the Company's financial condition and operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures used herein should not be considered in isolation of, as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
