(PRESS RELEASE) -- Scientific Games Corporation and Blue Ribbon have partnered to offer jackpots via the Company’s Foundation Innovation platform and Open Gaming System content aggregation platform.
The OGS has quickly become one of the industry’s most powerful two-sided distribution platforms. With almost 2,500 games from studios worldwide, OGS is connected to over 200 operators across every major regulated market.
