According to the firm, the planned cross-platform approach aims to provide top-tier game brands to players globally, including games in brick-and-mortar casinos, online and mobile, as well as real money and free-to-play social gaming platforms.

“We are thrilled to introduce the world to Light & Wonder, a company that will build great games and franchises that offer players a seamless experience across platforms”, said Light & Wonder Chief Executive Officer Barry Cottle.

“Our powerful new strategy required a powerful new identity to distinguish us and our unique offerings and capabilities”, Cottle noted.

According to the press statement, the decision follows a series of major strategic moves, such as the sale of Scientific's lottery and sports betting assets for $7.2 billion in late 2021.

The company's new name, Light & Wonder, is the culmination of input from major stakeholders and the company's strategic vision.
