ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Scientific Games Corp., a scratch-off lottery ticket maker in Atlanta, Georgia. The company's paranoia about getting hacked is one reason it is entrusted with so much business. Scientific Games gets a single-digit percentage fee of the retail sales of games it prints. Scientific Games produces 125 new games a month, and each one germinates within the company's database of 15,000 existing games, measured against more than 50 attributes.
