Scientific Games Corporation (Nasdaq: SGMS) announced that it has entered into a comprehensive agreement with Penn National Gaming (Nasdaq: PENN) to supply Tropicana Las Vegas and the recently opened Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, a full suite of the Company's transformative systems, games and table product solutions.

The milestone agreement, which follows an extensive competitive systems selection process, reinforces Scientific Games' position as the industry's leading supplier of value-adding solutions that address casino operators' entire casino floor needs.

As part of the agreement, Scientific Games secured 32 percent of Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego's games floor share. The property opened with 1,731 slot machines and 40 live table games, and the agreement includes placements of the Company's trailblazing new TwinStar™ cabinet, which supports Bally™ and WMS® game content, along with a host of other Scientific Games slot platforms and engaging Bally, Barcrest™ and WMS game content.

Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, developed and managed by Penn National Gaming on behalf of the Jamul Indian Village, opened on Monday, October 10, 2016 on the tribe's reservation in San Diego County, just 20 miles east of downtown San Diego.

Tropicana Las Vegas, which was acquired by Penn National in August 2015, has integrated Scientific Games' latest system solutions as part of its comprehensive reconfiguration and upgrading of the iconic Las Vegas Strip property's gaming floor. With the addition of Tropicana Las Vegas and Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, Scientific Games now provides its comprehensive systems solutions suite to 15 Penn National Gaming casino operations across the United States.

Scientific Games Chief Executive Officer and President Kevin Sheehan said, "We value our long standing partnership with Penn National Gaming and are pleased that they awarded us a significant share of games, platforms and table solutions for Jamul, as well as our systems business for both Jamul and Tropicana. We look forward to helping operations drive revenue, efficiencies and increased player excitement."

Penn National Gaming selected the Bally ACSC customer-driven slot monitoring, marketing and casino accounting system to capitalize on the power and reliability of its advanced new features, which includes multi-point bucket loyalty programs, patron choice promotion offers, patron card expiration enhancements, self-pay jackpots, local vs. tourist reinvestment strategies, and many more applications.

The ACSC system will connect 750 slot machines at Tropicana Las Vegas and 1,731 slot machines at Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego through high-speed networked floors and utilize the Bally iVIEW® Display Manager ("DM") on-device messaging technology to drive player communications, marketing and Elite Bonusing Suite™ promotions floorwide, creating more excitement and ways to win. The Elite Bonusing Suite features 12 different applications to amp up promotions and player-loyalty programs, including DM Tournaments, Dynamic Random Bonusing™, Video Poker Bonusing™ and Virtual Racing.

With the inclusion of these properties, Scientific Games' total under-contract iVIEW DM installations have reached more than 74,000 units worldwide, and there are more than 252,000 gaming machines using the iVIEW network globally.

Scientific Games is also providing its TableView™ real-time table rating and player-tracking system to Tropicana Las Vegas and Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, replacing the manual rating process previously used at Tropicana Las Vegas with touch-screen automation. TableView is fully integrated with the core ACSC system, providing a seamless view of the player and secure, instant access to table ratings and financial accounting data. Scientific Games' TableView system is installed on nearly 10,000 table games across the globe.

Another highlight of this integrated new contract is Penn National's investment in Scientific Games platforms and game content. Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego opened with 518 Scientific Games cabinets for a total of 13 different Scientific Games platforms, including the new TwinStar premium for-sale dual-screen cabinet as well as the high-performing Pro Wave® and the BLADE™ stepper, among others. Tropicana Las Vegas has also invested in TwinStar, Pro Wave, BLADE stepper, and BLADE S32 units to refresh their casino floor on the Las Vegas Strip.

Scientific Games' newest games at Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego and Tropicana Las Vegas include a variety of exciting for-sale and premium game titles for the two casinos, including CIRQUE DU SOLEIL KOOZA™, MONTY PYTHON™ Killer Bunny, PLAYBOY™ Don't Stop the Party, PLAYBOY™ Midnight Diamonds®, THE WIZARD OF OZ™ Not In Kansas Anymore, TITANIC™ Heart of the Ocean, WONDER WOMAN™ Gold, Fu Dao Le®, Cash'M if You Can!®, Quick Hit Jungle™, Zeus®, Kronos®, Goldfish Deluxe™, Bier Haus On Tap™, Dancing In Rio®, Hot Hot 8®, Quick Hit Volcano™, Guardian of the North®, Super Quick Hit™ PLAYBOY™ Sunset Sapphires™, Green Machine™, 5 Treasures®, 88 Fortunes®, Dragon Spin™, and a number of other engaging game themes.

From its table products suite, Scientific Games is providing Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego and Tropicana Las Vegas a number of its high-performing proprietary Shuffle Master™ table games including Three Card Poker™, Fortune Pai Gow Poker®, Ultimate Texas Hold 'em®, Dragon Bonus® Baccarat, Mississippi Stud®, and Let it Ride®.

Under the broad agreement with Penn National, Scientific Games will also provide its card-shuffling MD3® and iDeal Plus™ solutions to both properties.
