Scientific Games has accelerated further investment in iLottery innovation with SG Studios and the exciting SG Content Hub and partner program recently announced. The company will showcase the platform and exciting, new digital games at the North American Association of State & Provincial Lotteries 2023 Conference to be held in Milwaukee from October 30 to November 2. Scientific Games is partnering with more than 15 game studios globally for the SG Content Hub’s curated selection of high-performance iLottery games.
“SG Studios is a premiere game studio with a 50-strong production team creating some of the highest-performing iLottery games in the market today. Our roadmap plans are growing, and we will add games from a total of 20 partner studios accessible through the SG Content Hub by the end of 2024. These are some of the most highly respected digital content providers in the industry,” said Steve Hickson, VP of Digital Games for Scientific Games. “Our focus is on providing high-performing games with unique mechanics and incredible art design to lottery customers.
Among the iLottery games debuting at the North American conference are GAME OF THRONES, announced this summer, and MONOPOLY Property Payout, a 3D progressive jackpot game, both created by SG Studios.
“Today, we are seeing our games consistently outperforming competitive games from other providers in the market. Our goal is to continually provide Lottery customers with games that drive incremental growth in their iLottery business. We are seeking partner studios that offer unique, high-quality, lottery-focused game mechanics that will complement our own studio portfolio to join our SG Content Hub partner program,” said Hickson.
Along with the rich SG Content Hub feature set, game studios joining the partner program will also have the potential to access select licensed properties from Scientific Games’ portfolio of 100+ licensed brands to develop new iLottery game experiences.
The SG Content Hub and partner program is a unique combination of lottery content aggregation and game content partnership program with best-in-class, lottery-focused game studios across the globe. In addition to improving access to lottery-focused games and distribution, the SG Content Hub provides scalable features that work with partner games as well as the company’s games, including progressive, linked and multi-jurisdictional jackpots.
The SG Content Hub partner program delivers streamlined operations, simplified technical integrations, iLottery game portfolio management, and enhanced data analytics to ensure lotteries get access to a huge volume of game content delivered via one simple integration.

The team here at USI are thrilled to be working with Jill and the team at MVC. The collaboration and cohesive partnership through USI’s integrity initiatives will provide the best coverage and real time alerts to the Missouri Valley Conference,” Matthew Holt, CEO & co-founder of USI, said.
The Missouri Valley Conference – the nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference – continues to be a leader in college athletics and is one of the nation’s most progressive conferences, celebrating its 117th season in 2023-24. The Valley brand remains very strong, both regionally and nationally, and the great athletic tradition of the Conference remains a compelling force in recruiting student-athletes and in marketing all the MVC programs. League members have worked together to focus on common goals and objectives, placing a high value on league harmony, while continuing to invest in athletic programs to compete at the highest level.
