Scientific Games Passes Go – Takes MONOPOLY Brand Online in Wagering and Social Casino Formats

LAS VEGAS – May 13, 2015 – Scientific Games Corporation (“Company”) today announced several milestones in its relationship with the Hasbro MONOPOLY brand across the Company’s Interactive business.

Scientific Games Interactive recently launched the MONOPOLY Big Event™ online slot game for European customers of its Remote Game Server. MONOPOLY Big Event™ is the first slot launched under the MONOPOLY brand since Scientific Games became the exclusive digital distributor of wagered MONOPOLY branded content outside of North America. MONOPOLY Big Event™, created by the Company’s Barcrest game development studio, is an HTML5 execution of the Company’s recently introduced UK retail product of the same name, and is available simultaneously for players wagering on web and on mobile devices from launch. Scientific Games becomes the exclusive global online distributor of wagered MONOPOLY branded casino games this summer.

In addition, Scientific Games Interactive has finalized a deal that brings its MONOPOLY-branded content to social casino game players through native iOS®, Android®, and Kindle® applications. Previously announced rights to distribute MONOPOLY branded social casino content in browser-based executions.

And further expanding on its success with the MONOPOLY brand, Scientific Games Interactive recently launched the land-based player favorite slot title Super MONOPOLY Money™ Cool Nights™ for social casino fans around the world. Now available for players of the Jackpot Party Social Casino game on Facebook®, Super MONOPOLY Money Cool Nights is the first of many social casino executions expected to launch in Calendar 2015 from the Company’s Hasbro brand library, with future launches planned for multi-channel availability on web, smartphones, and tablet devices.

Jordan Levin, President, Interactive at Scientific Games, said, “With nearly two decades of MONOPOLY brand casino game development and more than 65 unique titles in our library, we couldn’t be more excited about the launch of our authentic MONOPOLY brand games for social casino and online wagering players. The addition of this and other top-tier brands from the Hasbro library to our Interactive business and distribution platforms is a marquee milestone in our journey to provide the world’s most compelling online casino entertainment.”
