Scientific Games Launches New South Carolina Education Lottery Players’ Club Rewards Program





Scientific Games announces the South Carolina Education Lottery has an all-new Players’ Club Rewards program that elevates the lottery experience for players around the state. The achievement-based program recently launched, bringing a host of new features offering players the opportunity to enter all instant and draw game tickets for chances to win cash and exciting prizes. Scientific Games’ award-winning customer relationship management (CRM) services and robust business intelligence tools are integrated into the rewards program, enabling SCEL to create powerful player engagements and personalized experiences. The rewards program is offered online and through the mobile app the company developed for SCEL. The launch marks Scientific Games’ eighth comprehensive rewards program currently in market.

“We’re excited to launch the new Players’ Club Rewards Program which supports all instant and draw game tickets and gives our players fun, new options for rewards through base points and achievements. We’ve worked with Scientific Games to develop a rewards program that is not only highly engaging for our players, but helps drive sales,” said Ammie Smith, Director of Product Development for the SCEL.

Players’ Club Rewards members can earn SCEL COIN with every ticket entered into the rewards program and by completing achievements. SCEL COIN can then be entered into weekly, monthly, and specialty prize drawings. Additionally, every member has a personalized dashboard and a suite of convenient features including scanning tickets through the mobile app.

“The new Players’ Club Rewards Program allows the SCEL to engage with its players more effectively by leveraging all aspects of the rewards program and our CRM services,” said Amy Warner, Senior Director of Digital Engagement for Scientific Games. “We pioneered the industry’s first comprehensive player rewards program in 2009 and have continually advanced its features and capabilities over the past 14 years. Our goal is to ensure today’s players can easily and conveniently engage with the lottery and its games and enjoy unique ways to be rewarded with more opportunities to win cash and prizes.”


The new rewards program and enhanced mobile app are key components of Scientific Games Enhanced Partnership’s premier digital engagement services. The partnership includes the company’s world-leading instant game design and portfolio management services, as well as licensed brand services, data-driven analytics and insights, game manufacturing, advanced logistics, marketing, sales support, and product distribution across the SCEL’s network of more than 3,900 retailers.

Scientific Games launched the world’s first secure lottery retail instant game in 1974, the first digital instant game in the U.S. in 2014, and is a leading provider of digital games, mobile apps, player loyalty programs and other digital products and services for the global lottery industry.

Scientific Games continues the company’s 20+ years of digital lottery innovation with a game enhancement for the South Carolina Education Lottery that is impacting player engagement and increasing sales.

The Lucky Day digital second-chance promotion is driving sales for two retail scratch-off games, $1 Wild Luck and $2 Crazy LuckWild Luck is performing 36% higher than all $1 SCEL scratch-offs currently on sale and Crazy Luck is performing 17% higher than all SCEL $2 games launched this fiscal year. Since launching in early February, the two SCEL scratch-off games have topped $5.2 million in sales, with nearly 23,000 unique players entering more than 335,000 tickets online.

The Lucky Day promotion takes players with non-winning Wild Luck and Crazy Luck scratch-off tickets online to spin a digitally animated Lucky Day wheel for a second-chance opportunity to win $500. The animated wheel spin features the winning symbol from the player’s specific ticket and was designed and developed by Scientific Games as part of a unique omnichannel offering to crossover digital and physical experiences in a new and engaging way.

Ammie Smith, Director of Product Development for the South Carolina Education Lottery, said, “By linking our physical scratch-off ticket to the digital second-chance opportunity, we’re offering South Carolina players a unique omnichannel experience that they’re clearly enjoying, and it’s driving sales.”


Wild Luck and Crazy Luck are from the new line of VariPlay HD Games created by Scientific Games featuring high-definition, three-dimensional play symbols randomly placed from ticket to ticket by patented production technology to give players a unique experience every time. The intricate detail of the high-definition play symbols makes VariPlay HD Games a good fit for a digital game extension.

John Schulz, President of Americas and Global Instant Products for Scientific Games, said, “We are very pleased with the performance of VariPlay HD Games for our lottery customers overall, but the addition of one of our newest digital enhancements has truly made these $1 and $2 games big winners for the South Carolina Education Lottery in terms of sales performance. While these retail games were very strategically designed for SCEL’s portfolio using Scientific Games’ analytics and insights, players are responding to the simplicity of the Lucky Day digital enhancement.”

The SCEL is currently ranked No. 4 in the world for instant game per capita sales. The Lottery is one of 20 worldwide that participate in the Scientific Games Enhanced Partnership program, which includes world-leading instant game design and portfolio management services, as well as data-driven analytics and insights, game manufacturing, advanced logistics, marketing, sales support, digital and licensed brand services. In addition to instant games, the company provides SCEL with licensed properties, a mobile app and a customer relationship management program to directly engage with players and provide exciting content and direct, personalized messaging.

Scientific Games provides retail and digital games, technologies, analytics and services to 130 lotteries in 50 countries, including nearly every North American lottery.
