SCIENTIFIC GAMES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

(1)    Consolidated Financial Statements

Basis of Presentation

        The consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2003 and the consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2002 and 2003, and the consolidated condensed statements of cash flows for the nine months then ended, have been prepared by the Company without audit. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company at September 30, 2003 and the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2002 and 2003 and its cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2002 and 2003 have been made.

        Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's 2002 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended. The results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2003 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.

Reclassifications to Prior Year's Consolidated Financial Statements

        Effective January 1, 2003, the Company adopted FASB Statement No. 145, Rescission of FASB Statements No. 4, 44 and 64, Amendment of FASB Statement No. 13, and Technical Corrections ("SFAS 145"). SFAS 145 rescinds Statement No. 4, which required all gains and losses from extinguishment of debt to be aggregated and, if material, classified as an extraordinary item, net of related income tax effect, and requires the criteria in Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 30 to be used to classify gains and losses. Accordingly, the Company has reclassified the extraordinary losses incurred in 2002 to other deductions-early extinguishment of debt. These debt extinguishments totaled $15,590 of pre-tax expense. Certain other reclassifications have been made to the prior year's consolidated financial statements to conform to the current presentation.

(1)
Series A Convertible Preferred Stock paid-in-kind dividend is not included in the calculation of diluted net income per share in the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2003 since the preferred stock is assumed to have been converted.

(2)
Potential common shares are not included in the calculation of dilutive net loss per share in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2002 since the inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

        At September 30, 2002 and 2003, the Company had outstanding stock options, warrants, Performance Accelerated Restricted Stock Units and Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, which could potentially dilute basic earnings per share in the future. (See Notes 14 and 15 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2002 in the Company's 2002 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended.)

Stock-Based Compensation

        The Company has chosen to continue to account for stock-based compensation using the intrinsic-value method prescribed by Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 25. Accordingly, no stock compensation expense has been recognized for a substantial majority of its stock-based compensation plans. Had the Company elected to recognize compensation cost based on the fair value of the stock options at the date of grant under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation, as amended by SFAS 148, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation—Transition and Disclosure—an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 123, such costs would have been recognized ratably over the vesting period of the underlying instruments and the Company's net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share would have changed to the pro forma amounts indicated in the table below:

 
  Three Months Ended

(2)    Subsequent Event—Acquisition of IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc.

        On November 6, 2003, the Company acquired IGT's OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc. from International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) for $143,000 in cash subject to closing adjustments. Subsequent to the acquisition, the Company changed the name of IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc. to Scientific Games Online Entertainment Systems ("OES"). The results of OES will be included in the Company's results of operations from the date of acquisition. In its most recent fiscal year, OES had annual revenues of approximately $143,000.

        The acquisition of OES is expected to greatly strengthen the Company's presence in the lottery industry and accelerate its entrance into the video lottery systems business. The addition of OES expands the Company's geographic presence and significantly broadens its lottery product offerings. As a result of the acquisition, the Company will operate on-line lottery systems (lotto type games) in 15 states and throughout the Caribbean, in addition to supporting systems that OES delivered to customers in Korea, Norway, Switzerland and Shanghai. The acquisition also includes OES's Advanced Gaming System (AGS) video system contracts in six jurisdictions throughout the world, certain intellectual property and an exclusive license to specific IGT slot brands for both instant and on-line games. The Company is in the process of allocating the purchase price of OES, including performing a thorough analysis to estimate the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, and expects a majority of the excess of the purchase price over the historical value of the net tangible and intangible assets to be allocated to goodwill.

        Funding for the OES acquisition and related fees and expenses was provided on November 6, 2003 by amending and restating the 2002 Facility (as amended and restated, the "2003 Facility") to (a) permit the OES acquisition and related incurrence of indebtedness, (b) increase the revolving credit facility by $25,000 to $75,000, (c) enter into a $462,825 Term C Loan, of which $287,825 was used to repay in full the existing Term B Loan, $143,000 was used to pay the purchase price for the OES acquisition, and the balance is available for general corporate purposes, and (d) make certain other changes to the credit agreement. The Term C Loan carries interest at the Base Rate plus a margin of 1.75% per annum, or at the rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.75% per annum, with the provision that when the Consolidated Leverage Ratio is less than 2.00:1.00 then the Base Rate margin and the LIBOR margin drop to 1.50% and 2.50%, respectively. The Term C Loan matures in December 2009 and requires quarterly principal payments of $1,157 through December 31, 2008 plus four quarterly payments of $109,921 in 2009.

(3)    Acquisition of MDI Entertainment, Inc.

        On January 17, 2003, the Company completed the acquisition of MDI Entertainment, Inc. ("MDI") through (i) a tender offer at $1.60 per share, in cash, (ii) the purchase of shares from MDI's President and Chief Executive Officer pursuant to a separate stock purchase agreement and (iii) a merger agreement, whereby the remaining eight percent of MDI common shares was converted into the right to receive $1.60 per share in cash. With the purchase of MDI, the Company significantly expanded its offerings of licensed branded products and prize fulfillment and related services. MDI focuses on helping lotteries attract players to new kinds of tickets and second chance games that allow players to win merchandise, such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles and trips and prizes such as tickets to NBA playoff games. The Company's portfolio of licensed brands now includes Mandalay Bay, NBA, Harley-Davidson, Wheel-of-Fortune, and many others. The Company expects that its acquisition of MDI will enable it to further expand the use of branded games and prize fulfillment services to continue to help its customers generate revenues to meet the needs of their beneficiaries. The acquisition was recorded using the purchase method of accounting and the acquired assets and liabilities have been recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the $22,958 purchase price over the fair values of the net assets acquired is currently estimated to be approximately $26,593 and has been recorded as goodwill. This estimate is subject to revisions until the

10



valuations of MDI's assets and liabilities are completed. The operating results of MDI have been included in the Company's consolidated operating results since the date of acquisition. Had the operating results of MDI been included as if the transaction had been consummated on January 1, 2003, the Company's pro forma operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2003 would not have been materially different from the actual reported results.

(5)    Income Tax Expense

        Income tax expense was $7,519 and $20,921 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2003, respectively. Due to the recognition of the income tax asset from the net operating loss carryforward ("NOL") in the fourth quarter of 2002, the effective income tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2003 was approximately 36%, which differed from the federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to foreign and state income taxes.

        For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2002, income tax expense totaled $706 and $13,247, respectively. This expense primarily reflects foreign and state income taxes, and a $9,790 charge in the first quarter of 2002 related to the adoption of SFAS 142, which caused the Company to reduce the recorded amount of the NOL from $18,520 to $8,730 to reflect the reduced amount of net taxable temporary differences that are expected to reverse during the NOL carryforward period because of the cessation of amortization of the tradename and employee workforce intangible assets. No current tax benefit was recognized on domestic operating losses in either period in 2002 in excess of the amount of net taxable temporary differences that are expected to reverse during the NOL carryforward period.

        Parts and work-in-process include costs for equipment expected to be sold. Costs incurred for equipment associated with specific wagering system service contracts not yet placed in service are classified as construction in progress in property and equipment.

(8)    Debt

        At September 30, 2003, the Company had approximately $17,320 available for borrowing under the Company's revolving credit facility under the Company's senior secured credit facility (the "2002 Facility"). There were no borrowings outstanding under this facility, but the Company had issued approximately $32,680 in letters of credit under the facility at September 30, 2003. At December 31, 2002, the Company's available borrowing capacity under the 2002 Facility was $28,171. As of September 30, 2003, there was $287,825 outstanding under the Term B Loan under the 2002 Facility, and $65,584 of the Company's 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes (the "Notes") were outstanding.

Subsequent Event—Refinancing of Debt

        On November 6, 2003, the Company amended and restated the 2002 Facility (as amended and restated, the "2003 Facility") to (a) permit the OES acquisition and related incurrence of indebtedness, (b) increase the revolving credit facility by $25,000 to $75,000, (c) enter into a $462,825 Term C Loan of which $287,825 was used to repay in full the existing Term B Loan, $143,000 was used to pay the purchase price for the OES acquisition, and the balance is available for general corporate purposes, and (d) make certain other changes to the credit agreement. The Term C Loan carries interest at the Base Rate plus a margin of 1.75% per annum, or at the rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.75% per annum, with the provision that when the Consolidated Leverage Ratio is less than 2.00:1.00 then the Base Rate margin and the LIBOR margin drop to 1.50% and 2.50%, respectively. The Term C Loan matures in December 2009 and requires quarterly principal payments of $1,157 through December 31, 2008 plus four quarterly principal payments of $109,921 in 2009. The 2003 Facility is secured by a first priority, perfected lien on: (i) substantially all the property and assets (real and personal, tangible and intangible) of the Company and its wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries, (ii) 100% of the capital stock of all of the direct and indirect wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the capital stock of all of the wholly-owned first-tier foreign subsidiaries of the

15



Company and (iii) all inter-company indebtedness owing between the Company and its wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. The 2003 Facility is supported by guarantees provided by all of the Company's direct and indirect wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries.

        In addition, the 2003 Facility will be subject to the following mandatory prepayments, with certain customary exceptions: (i) 50% of the net cash proceeds from the sale or issuance of equity, (ii) 100% of the net cash proceeds from the sale or issuance of debt securities; (iii) 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of assets and casualty insurance proceeds, subject to a reinvestment exclusion limited to $20,000 per annum, and (iv) 50% of the Company's excess cash flow (as defined in the credit agreement governing the 2003 Facility), or 0% if the leverage ratio is less than 2.50 to 1.00.

        The credit agreement governing the 2003 Facility contains certain covenants that, among other things, limit the Company's ability, and the ability of certain of the Company's subsidiaries, to incur additional indebtedness, pay dividends or make distributions or certain other restricted payments, purchase or redeem capital stock, make investments or extend credit, engage in certain transactions with affiliates, engage in sale leaseback transactions, consummate certain asset sales, effect a consolidation or merger, sell, transfer, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all assets, or create certain liens and other encumbrances on assets. Additionally, the credit agreement governing the 2003 Facility contains the following financial covenants that are computed quarterly on a rolling four-quarter basis as applicable:

        For purposes of the foregoing limitations, Consolidated EBITDA means the sum of (i) consolidated net income, (ii) consolidated interest expense with respect to all outstanding indebtedness, (iii) provisions for taxes based on income, (iv) total depreciation expense, (v) total amortization expense and (vi) certain adjustments, in each case for the period being measured, all of the foregoing as determined on a consolidated basis for the Company and its subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP.

        The table below reconciles the change in the carrying amount of goodwill, by reporting unit, which is the same as operating segment, for the period from December 31, 2002 to September 30, 2003. The Company recorded a $915 increase in goodwill in 2003 in connection with an earnout payment pursuant to the SERCHI (as defined below) purchase agreement. Goodwill in the amount of $775, which was directly related to the value of customer service contracts acquired as part of the June 5, 2002 acquisition of 65% of the issued and outstanding shares of Serigrafica Chilena S.A. ("SERCHI"), was reclassified to intangible assets effective January 2003 as a result of the completion of the final purchase price valuation and allocation during the first quarter of 2003. The Company recorded an increase to goodwill on January 9, 2003 of $26,593 related to the initial purchase price allocation of the MDI acquisition, subject to revision pending the completion of the final valuation and allocation of the purchase price.

SCIENTIFIC GAMES CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR
THE THREE AND NINE MONTH PERIODS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2003

Background

        The following discussion addresses our financial condition as of September 30, 2003 and the results of our operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2003, compared to the same periods in the prior year. This discussion should be read in conjunction with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002, included in our 2002 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended.

        We operate in four business segments: Lottery Group, Pari-mutuel Group, Venue Management Group and Telecommunications Products Group.

        Our Lottery Group provides instant tickets and related services and lottery systems. Instant ticket and related services includes ticket design and manufacturing as well as value-added services, including game design, sales and marketing support, inventory management and warehousing and fulfillment services. In addition, this division includes promotional instant tickets and pull-tab tickets that we sell to both lottery and non-lottery customers. Our lottery systems business includes the supply of transaction processing software for the accounting and validation of both instant ticket and on-line lottery games, point-of-sale terminal hardware sales, central site computers and communication hardware sales, and ongoing support and maintenance services for these products. This product line also includes software and hardware and support services for sports betting and credit card processing systems.

        In January 2003, we significantly expanded our offerings of licensed branded lottery products and prize fulfillment and related services with the acquisition of MDI. MDI focuses on helping lotteries attract players to new kinds of tickets and second chance games that allow players to win merchandise, such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles and trips and prizes such as tickets to NBA playoff games. Our portfolio of licensed brands now includes Mandalay Bay, NBA, Harley-Davidson and Wheel-of-Fortune, plus many others. We expect that our acquisition of MDI will enable us to further expand the use of branded games and prize fulfillment services to continue to help our customers generate additional revenues.

        In November 2003, we completed the acquisition of IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) for $143 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments. (See "Recent Developments.") We expect that the acquisition will greatly strengthen our presence in the lottery industry and accelerate our entrance into the video lottery systems business. The acquisition also expands our geographic presence and significantly broadens our lottery product offerings.

        Our Pari-mutuel Group is comprised of our North American and international on-track, off-track and inter-track pari-mutuel services, simulcasting and communications services, and video gaming, as well as sales of pari-mutuel systems and equipment.

        Our Venue Management Group is comprised of our Connecticut off-track betting operations, and our Dutch on-track and off-track betting operations.

        Our Telecommunications Products Group is comprised of our prepaid cellular phone cards business.

        Our revenues are derived from two principal sources: service revenues and sales revenues. Service revenues are earned pursuant to multi-year contracts to provide instant tickets and related services and on-line lottery and pari-mutuel wagering systems and services, or are derived from wagering by

24



customers at facilities we own or lease. Sales revenues are derived from sales of prepaid phone cards and from the sale of wagering and lottery systems, equipment, and software licenses.

        The first and fourth quarters of the calendar year traditionally comprise the weakest season for our pari-mutuel wagering business. As a result of inclement weather during the winter months, a number of racetracks do not operate and those that do operate often experience missed racing days. This adversely affects the amounts wagered and our corresponding service revenues. Wagering and lottery equipment sales and software license revenues usually reflect a limited number of large transactions, which do not recur on an annual basis. Consequently, revenues and operating results can vary substantially from period to period as a result of the timing of revenue recognition for major equipment sales and software licensing transactions. In addition, instant ticket and prepaid phone card sales may vary depending on the season and timing of contract awards, changes in customer budgets, inventory ticket levels, lottery retail sales and general economic conditions. Operating results may also vary significantly from period to period depending on the addition or disposition of business units in each period.

Results of Operations: See Note 4—Business Segments

Three Months Ended September 30, 2003 compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2002

Revenue Analysis

        For the three months ended September 30, 2003, revenues of $132.1 million improved $16.9 million or 15% overall as compared to the prior year quarter, reflecting a $16.4 million or 17% increase in service revenue and a $0.5 million or 2% increase in sales revenue.

        The increase in service revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2003 is primarily attributable to a $16.0 million or 28% increase in revenues in the Lottery Group as compared to the prior year quarter, of which $8.6 million represents an increase in licensed branded lottery products and prize fulfillment and related services, primarily attributable to the addition of MDI beginning in 2003, $1.9 million represents an improvement in revenues related to the Company's cooperative services programs and European lottery operations, and $4.0 million represents an improvement in lottery ticket sales, primarily in the U.S. and Latin America. Pari-mutuel Group service revenues were equal to the previous year at $21.3 million, reflecting lower Handle (dollars wagered) based service revenue offset by favorable foreign exchange rates. Venue Management Group service revenues increased approximately $0.4 million or 2% compared to the prior year quarter due primarily to increased Handle in its raceview centers and more favorable exchange rates in The Netherlands.

        The $0.5 million increase in sales revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2003 is primarily attributable to higher pari-mutuel and lottery systems and equipment sales, partially offset by a $0.3 million or 3% decline in revenues in the Telecommunications Products Group as compared to the prior year quarter due primarily to price competition in the European prepaid cellular phone card market partially offset by the impact of favorable exchange rates and increased sales volume.

Gross Profit Analysis

        Gross profit of $55.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2003 increased $10.5 million or 23% as compared to the same period in 2002, reflecting an $11.0 million or 29% improvement in service revenues, partially offset by a $0.5 million or 7% decline in sales revenues. Margin improvements related to service revenues were primarily attributable to the addition of MDI beginning in 2003, increased revenues in our cooperative services programs and European lottery operations, cost improvement in the on-line lottery business and increased lottery ticket sales, primarily in the U.S. and Latin America, as compared to the prior year quarter. An increase of $0.7 million or 7% in gross margin in the Pari-mutuel Group was primarily due to cost savings in the U.S. pari-mutuel

25



business, a new service contract customer in Poland and favorable euro exchange rates. Decreased gross profit on sales was due to an unfavorable mix of systems and equipment sold, and decreased sales revenue in the Telecommunication Products Group which contributed approximately $0.3 million or 7% less in gross margin during the second quarter of 2003 as compared to the same period in 2002 primarily due to lower prices, partially offset by improved volumes and favorable exchange rates.

Expense Analysis

        Selling, general and administrative expenses of $18.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2003 were $3.9 million or 27% higher than for the same period in 2002, of which $1.6 million is attributable to the acquisition of MDI in 2003, $1.3 million is attributable to increased sales and marketing costs, compensation, medical costs and professional service fees, and $1.0 million is attributable to costs from the relocation of our racing operation from Delaware to Georgia.

        Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of service contract software, of $11.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2003 increased $0.9 million or 9% from the same period in 2002, primarily due to the acquisition of MDI and increased amortization expense on intangible assets.

        Interest expense of $6.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2003 decreased $3.6 million or 37% for the same period in 2002, primarily as a result of the debt reduction program we began in 2002. (See "Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital.")

Early Extinguishment of Debt

        As explained in Note 1 above, the Company adopted SFAS 145 effective January 1, 2003. As a result, we were required to reclassify to "other deductions-early extinguishment of debt" the losses reported in 2002 as extraordinary expense.

        Income tax expense of $7.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2003 increased $6.8 million from $0.7 million for the same period in 2002 due to the recognition of the income tax asset from the NOL carryforward in the fourth quarter of 2002. In the third quarter of 2002, income tax expense principally reflected state and foreign tax expense. We estimate that our cash tax rate for fiscal 2003 will be approximately 18%.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2003 compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2002

Revenue Analysis

        For the nine months ended September 30, 2003, revenues of $384.1 million improved $47.7 million or 14% overall as compared to the prior year period, reflecting a $42.6 million or 15% increase in service revenue and a $5.2 million or 10% increase in sales revenue.

        The increase in service revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 was primarily attributable to a $42.0 million or 24% increase in revenues in the Lottery Group as compared to the prior year period, of which $18.0 million represents an improvement in licensed branded lottery products and prize fulfillment and related services, primarily attributable to the addition of MDI beginning January 10, 2003, $6.7 million represents an improvement in revenues related to the Company's cooperative services programs and European lottery operations, and $15.3 million represents an improvement in lottery ticket sales, primarily in the U.S. and Latin America. Pari-mutuel Group service revenues were approximately $0.9 million or 2% lower than the prior year period primarily due to lower Handle caused by severe winter weather conditions in the northeast, the war in Iraq, a slowing economy and a horsemen's strike in Chicago, partially offset by favorable foreign

26



exchange rates. Venue Management Group service revenues increased approximately $1.5 million or 3% compared to the prior year period due primarily to increased Handle in its raceview centers, increased commissions from the Mohegan Sun Casino, and more favorable exchange rates in The Netherlands.

        The $5.2 million increase in sales revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 is primarily attributable to higher levels of systems and equipment sales in the Lottery Group, coupled with a $1.1 million or 3% improvement in revenues in the Telecommunications Products Group as compared to the prior year period, due primarily to increased volume and the impact of favorable exchange rates in the European prepaid cellular phone card market, partially offset by lower prices.

Gross Profit Analysis

        Gross profit of $162.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 increased $28.1 million or 21% as compared to the same period in 2002, reflecting a $27.9 million or 24% improvement in service revenues, and a $0.2 million or 1% improvement in sales revenues. Margin improvements related to service revenues as compared to the prior year period were primarily attributable to improvement in revenues related to our cooperative services programs and European lottery operations, and improvement in lottery ticket sales, primarily in the U.S. and Latin America, and the addition of MDI beginning January 10, 2003. An increase of $0.5 million or 2% in gross margin was a result of cost improvements, partially offset by lower Handle-related service revenues in the Pari-mutuel Group as explained above. Increased sales revenue contributed approximately $0.2 million or 2% in gross margin increase during the nine month period of 2003 as compared to the same period in 2002 primarily due to higher levels of lottery systems and equipment sales. Telecommunications Products Group gross margins equaled those of the prior year period due primarily to increased volume, offset by lower prices.

Expense Analysis

        Selling, general and administrative expenses of $56.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 were $11.5 million or 26% higher than for the same period in 2002, primarily due to $4.4 million of incremental selling, general and administrative expenses for SERCHI and MDI, a $5.3 million increase in sales and marketing costs, compensation, medical costs and professional service fees, a $0.5 million favorable settlement of litigation in 2002, and $1.3 million in costs associated with relocating our Autotote Systems pari-mutuel operations from Delaware to Georgia.

        Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of service contract software, of $33.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 increased $1.8 million or 6% from the same period in 2002, primarily due to the acquisition of MDI, increased amortization expense on intangibles as a result of reclassifications made pursuant to the final purchase price allocation of SERCHI, and the amortization of deferred installation costs of new lottery contracts.

        Interest expense of $18.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 decreased $14.2 million or 43% from the same period in 2002, primarily as a result of the debt reduction program begun in 2002. (See "Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital.")

Income Tax Expense

        Income tax expense of $20.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 increased $7.7 million from $13.2 million in the same period in 2002 due to the recognition of the income tax benefit from the net operating loss carryforward in the fourth quarter of 2002. In the first quarter of 2002, we also recorded a charge of $9.8 million relating to the adoption of SFAS 142, which caused us to reduce the recorded amount of our NOL from $18.5 million to $8.7 million to reflect the reduced amount of net taxable temporary differences that are expected to reverse during the NOL carryforward

27



period because of the cessation of amortization of the tradename and employee workforce intangible assets. No current tax benefit was recognized on domestic operating losses as of September 30, 2002 in excess of the amount of net taxable temporary differences that are expected to reverse during the NOL carryforward period.

Critical Accounting Policies

        Our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Preparing consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by the application of our accounting policies. Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in our 2002 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended. Critical accounting policies are those that require application of management's most difficult, subjective, or complex judgments, often as a result of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods. Critical accounting policies for us include revenue recognition on percentage of completion contracts related to lottery development projects and pari-mutuel systems software development projects, capitalization of software development costs, evaluation of the recoverability of assets, the assessment of litigation and contingencies, accounting for stock-based compensation, accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities, and accounting for income and other taxes. Actual results could differ from estimates.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital

        In July 2002, we completed the public offering and sale of 14.4 million shares of our Class A Common Stock at a price of $7.25 per share (the "2002 Offering") and used the net proceeds of approximately $98.4 million (after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and prior to deducting offering expenses) to redeem approximately $83.0 million of our 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes ("Notes"). As a result of these transactions, our capital structure improved, and Standard & Poor's Ratings Group and Moody's Investors Service, Inc. upgraded our credit ratings to BB- and Ba3, respectively, where they remain today. In December 2002, we replaced our existing senior secured credit facility (the "2000 Facility"), with the 2002 Facility, which consisted of a $50.0 million revolving credit facility due 2006 and a $290.0 million Term B Loan due 2008. In May 2003, we repurchased an additional $1.5 million of our Notes. At September 30, 2003, approximately 82% of our debt is in variable rate instruments. Consequently, we are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates. The effect of a 0.125% change in the interest rates associated with our unhedged variable rate debt will result in a change of approximately $0.4 million per year in our interest expense assuming no change in our outstanding borrowings.

        Our financing arrangements as of September 2003 impose certain limitations on our and our subsidiaries' operations.

        The credit agreement governing the 2002 Facility (the "Credit Agreement") contained certain covenants that, among other things, limited our ability, and the ability of certain of our subsidiaries, to incur additional indebtedness, pay dividends or make distributions or certain other restricted payments, purchase or redeem capital stock, make investments or extend credit, engage in certain transactions with affiliates, engage in sale leaseback transactions, consummate certain asset sales, effect a consolidation or merger, or sell, transfer, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all assets, and create certain liens and other encumbrances on new assets. Additionally, the Credit Agreement

28



contained the following financial covenants at September 30, 2003 that were computed quarterly on a rolling four-quarter basis as applicable:

        For purposes of the foregoing limitations, Consolidated EBITDA means the sum of (i) consolidated net income, (ii) consolidated interest expense with respect to all outstanding indebtedness, (iii) provisions for taxes based on income, (iv) total depreciation expense, (v) total amortization expense and (vi) certain adjustments, in each case for the period being measured, all of the foregoing as determined on a consolidated basis for us and our subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP. Although we were in compliance with our loan covenants at September 30, 2003 and expect to continue to remain in compliance over the next 12 months, no assurances can be provided that we will be able to do so or that we will be able to continue to meet the covenant requirements beyond 12 months.

        The 2002 Facility provided for borrowings up to $50.0 million to be used for working capital and general corporate purpose loans and for letters of credit. At September 30, 2003, we had outstanding letters of credit of $32.7 million, but no outstanding borrowings under the 2002 Facility, leaving us with a total availability of $17.3 million as compared to $28.2 million at December 31, 2002.

        In November 2003, we amended and restated our 2002 Facility (the "2003 Facility"). The 2003 Facility consists of a $75.0 million revolving credit facility due 2006 and a $462.8 million Term C Loan due 2009. The 2003 Facility contains financial covenants which are identical to those in the 2002 Facility described above. Our ability to borrow under the 2003 Facility will depend on our remaining in compliance with the limitations imposed by our lenders, including maintenance of specified financial covenants.

29



        Our contractual obligations and commercial commitments principally include obligations associated with our outstanding indebtedness and future minimum operating lease obligations.

        Our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock requires dividend payments at a rate of 6% per annum. To date, we have satisfied the dividend requirement using additional shares of convertible preferred stock. The terms of the convertible preferred stock provide us with the flexibility to satisfy the dividend in cash, subject to bank approval. We have agreed to pay the scheduled December 2003 dividend in-kind and expect that we will continue to make such payments in-kind.

        Our pari-mutuel wagering and on-line lottery systems service contracts require us to, among other things, maintain the central computing system and related hardware in efficient working order, provide added software functionality upon request, provide on-site computer operators, and furnish necessary supplies. Our primary expenditures associated with these services are personnel and related costs, which are expensed as incurred and are included in Operating Expenses-Services in the consolidated statements of operations. Historically, the revenues we derive from our service contracts have exceeded the direct costs associated with fulfilling our obligations under these pari-mutuel wagering and lottery systems service contracts. We expect that we will continue to realize positive cash flow and operating income as we extend or renew existing service contracts. We also expect that we will enter into new contracts that are accretive to our cash flow. In addition, through advancements in technology, we are continually deploying more efficient and cost effective methods for manufacturing and delivering our products and services to our customers. We expect that technological efficiencies will continue to positively impact our future cash flows and operating results. We are not party to any other material short-term or long-term obligations or commitments pursuant to these service contracts.

        Periodically, we bid on new pari-mutuel and on-line lottery contracts. Once awarded, these contracts generally require significant up-front capital expenditures for terminal assembly, customization of software, software and equipment installation and telecommunications configuration. Historically we have funded these up front costs through cash flows generated from operations, available cash on hand and borrowings under our credit facilities. Our ability to continue to procure new contracts will depend on, among other things, our then present liquidity levels and/or our ability to obtain additional financing at commercially acceptable rates to finance the initial up front costs. Once operational, long term service contracts have been accretive to our operating cash flow. For fiscal 2003, we anticipate that capital expenditures and software expenditures will be approximately $35.0 million. However, the actual level of expenditures will ultimately depend on the extent to which we are successful in winning new contracts. The amount of capital expenditures in fiscal 2004 and beyond will largely depend on the extent to which we are successful in winning new contracts. Furthermore, our pari-mutuel wagering network consists of approximately 26,000 wagering terminals. Periodically, we elect to upgrade the technological capabilities of older terminals and replace terminals that have exhausted their useful lives. We presently have no commitments to replace our existing terminal base and our obligation to upgrade the terminals is discretionary. Servicing our installed terminal base requires that we maintain a supply of parts and accessories on hand. We are also required, contractually in some cases, to provide spare parts over an extended period of time, principally in connection with our systems and terminal sale transactions. To meet our contractual obligations and maintain sufficient levels of on-hand inventory quantities to service our installed base, we purchase inventory on an as needed basis. We presently have no inventory purchase obligations.

        At September 30, 2003, our available cash and borrowing capacity totaled $54.9 million compared to $63.1 million at December 31, 2002. Our available cash and borrowing capacities fluctuate principally based on the timing of collections from our customers, cash expenditures associated with new and existing pari-mutuel wagering and lottery systems contracts, repayment of our outstanding debt and changes in our working capital position. In the nine months ended September 30, 2003, net cash provided by operating activities of $66.8 million exceeded cash used in investing activities of $61.4 million, including $20.8 million to fund the acquisition of MDI, and $4.8 million in net cash used

30



to repay long-term debt. The $66.8 million amount consisted of the excess of the $88.6 million that was provided by operations over the $21.8 million that was used to fund changes in working capital. The working capital changes occurred principally from increases in accounts receivable and inventory and decreases in accrued liabilities, including $2.1 million in accrued interest.

        We believe that our cash flow from operations, available cash and available borrowing capacity under the 2003 Facility will be sufficient to meet our liquidity needs, including anticipated capital expenditures, for the foreseeable future; however, we cannot assure you that this will be the case. While we are not aware of any particular trends, our contracts periodically renew and we cannot assure you that we will be successful in sustaining our cash flow from operations through renewal of our existing contracts or through the addition of new contracts. In addition, lottery customers in the United States generally require service providers to provide performance bonds in connection with each state contract. Our ability to obtain performance bonds on commercially reasonable terms is subject to prevailing market conditions, which may be impacted by economic and political events. Although we have not experienced any difficulty obtaining such bonds, we cannot assure you that we will continue to be able to obtain performance bonds on commercially reasonable terms or at all. While we are not aware of any reason to do so, if we need to refinance all or part of our indebtedness, including our 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes, on or before maturity, or provide letters of credit or cash in lieu of performance bonds, we cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain new financing or to refinance any of our indebtedness, including the 2003 Facility and our 121/2% Senior Subordinated Notes, on commercially reasonable terms or at all.

Impact of Recently Issued Accounting Standards

        In May 2003, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") issued Statement No. 150, Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Characteristics of both Liabilities and Equity ("SFAS 150"). SFAS 150 requires that certain financial instruments which have characteristics of both liabilities and equity be classified as liabilities, or, in some circumstances, assets, if they fall within the scope of SFAS 150. We were required to adopt SFAS 150 for all financial instruments entered into or modified after May 31, 2003, and on July 1, 2003 for all other financial instruments. The adoption of SFAS 150 did not have a material impact on our consolidated operations or financial position, as we are now constituted.

        In April 2003, the FASB issued Statement No. 149, Amendment of Statement 133 on Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities ("SFAS 149"). SFAS 149 requires that contracts with comparable characteristics be accounted for similarly, clarifies under what circumstances a contract meets the characteristics of a derivative, clarifies when a derivative contains a financing component and amends the definition of an underlying to conform it to language used in FASB Interpretation No. 45. We are required to adopt SFAS 149 for all contracts entered into or modified after September 30, 2003. We do not expect the adoption of SFAS 149 to have a material impact on our consolidated operations or financial position, as we are now constituted.

        In December 2002 the FASB issued Interpretation No. 46, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities ("Interpretation No. 46"), which elaborates on Accounting Research Bulletin No. 51, Consolidated Financial Statements, to address consolidation by business enterprises of variable interest entities (previously often referred to as special purpose entities), which have one or both of the following characteristics:

31



        Interpretation No. 46 applies immediately to variable interest entities created after January 31, 2003. It applies in the first fiscal year or interim period beginning after December 15, 2003, to variable interest entities in which an enterprise holds a variable interest that it acquired before February 1, 2003. We do not believe that this statement will have an impact on our financial statements.

        In November 2002, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 45, Guarantor's Accounting and Disclosure Requirements for Guarantees, Including Indirect Guarantees of Indebtedness of Others ("Interpretation No. 45"), which elaborates on the disclosures to be made by a guarantor in its interim and annual financial statements about its obligations under certain guarantees it has issued, and clarifies that a liability is to be recognized at the inception of a guarantee for the fair value of the obligation undertaken in issuing the guarantee. We complied with the disclosure requirements of Interpretation No. 45 in our December 31, 2002 financial statements and have adopted the initial recognition and initial measurement provisions, which are applicable on a prospective basis to guarantees issued or modified after December 31, 2002. We do not believe that Interpretation No. 45 will have an impact on our financial statements.

        In November 2002, the EITF reached a consensus on Issue 00-21, Multiple Deliverable Revenue Arrangements ("EITF 00-21"). EITF 00-21 addresses certain aspects of the accounting by a vendor for arrangements under which it will perform multiple revenue-generating activities. It also addresses when and how an arrangement involving multiple deliverables should be divided into separate units of accounting. The guidance in EITF 00-21 is effective for revenue arrangements entered into in fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2003, with early application permitted. Companies may elect to report the change in accounting as a cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle in accordance with APB Opinion 20, Accounting Changes and SFAS 3, Reporting Accounting Changes in Interim Financial Statements-an amendment of APB Opinion No. 28. We believe that our current accounting is consistent with the provisions of EITF 00-21.

        On March 12, 2003, the FASB added to its agenda two projects that will seek to improve the accounting and disclosures relating to stock-based compensation and pension costs. Among other issues, the project on stock-based compensation will address whether to require that the cost of employee stock options be treated as an expense. The FASB plans to start deliberating the key issues on this subject at future public meetings with a view to issuing an Exposure Draft later this year that could become effective in 2004. Separately, the FASB decided to add a project to its agenda that would seek to improve disclosures relating to employer pension plans. As part of this project, the FASB will address perceived deficiencies in current pension accounting by identifying ways to enhance disclosures about pension costs, plan assets, obligations and funding requirements. Until final standards are issued, we will not be able to quantify the impact, if any, that these two projects will have on our future consolidated operations or financial position.

Recent Developments

        On November 11, 2003, we announced that a consortium consisting of the Company, Lottomatica S.p.A, and Arianna 2001, a company owned by the Federation of Italian Tobacconists, had signed a contract with the Italian Monopoli di Stato to be the exclusive operator of the Italian Gratta e Vinci instant lottery. The contract has an initial term of six years with a six-year extension option. Under the contract, we will provide and support the central system and associated hardware and software, will be the exclusive supplier of instant tickets, will participate in the profits of the lottery operation as an equity partner, and will partner with Lottomatica in the overall management of the lottery. The contract was initially awarded in 2001, but the ratification of the award was delayed by a series of protests by competing bidders. We expect to sell at least $100 million of instant tickets to the consortium over the initial six-year term of the contract, and expect to receive additional revenues from the sale and maintenance of the central system and the related software and hardware, and from our share of the consortium's profits.

        On November 6, 2003, we acquired IGT OnLine Entertainment Systems, Inc., or OES, from International Game Technology. The purchase price was $143 million in cash, subject to closing adjustments. OES operates on-line lottery systems in seven states and the Caribbean, and supports systems sold to customers in Korea, Norway, Switzerland and Shanghai. The acquisition also included OES's Advanced Gaming System (AGS) video system contracts in six jurisdictions throughout the world, certain intellectual property and an exclusive license to specific IGT slot brands for both instant and on-line games. In connection with the acquisition of OES, we amended and restated the credit agreement governing our senior credit facility to, among other things, increase the revolving credit facility by $25.0 million to $75.0 million and provide for a $462.8 million Term C Loan, of which $287.8 million was used to repay in full the existing Term B Loan, $143.0 million was used to pay the purchase price for OES, and the balance is available for general corporate purposes. Upon consummation of the acquisition, we changed the name of OES to Scientific Games Online Entertainment Systems, Inc.

        On October 10, 2003, Mafco Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc., a privately held diversified holding company with interests in consumer products, entertainment, financial services and other industries and chaired by Ronald O. Perelman, agreed to acquire Cirmatica Gaming, S.A.'s entire interest in the Company, consisting of Series A convertible preferred stock and Series B preferred stock and representing approximately 24% of the equity and voting power of the Company on an as-converted basis. The aggregate purchase price will be approximately $194 million.

        In October 2003 we completed the relocation of our Autotote Systems pari-mutuel operations from Newark, Delaware to the Alpharetta, Georgia, headquarters of our Scientific Games International lottery subsidiary.

        On September 9, 2003, we announced that the Texas Lottery Commission named us as the apparent successful proposer as the result of an emergency solicitation for instant ticket manufacturing and services. The contract is valued at $3.8 million dollars for the initial six-month term and includes an additional six-month option at the Texas Lottery's sole discretion.


QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

        Our products and services are sold to a diverse group of customers throughout the world. As such, we are subject to certain risks and uncertainties as a result of changes in general economic conditions, sources of supply, competition, foreign exchange rates, tax reform, litigation and regulatory developments. The diversity and breadth of our products and geographic operations mitigate the risk that adverse changes from any single event would materially affect our financial position. Additionally, as a result of the diversity of our customer base, we do not consider ourselves exposed to concentration of credit risks. These risks are further minimized by setting credit limits, ongoing monitoring of customer account balances, and assessment of the customers' financial strengths.

        Inflation has not had an abnormal or unanticipated effect on our operations. Inflationary pressures would be significant to our business if raw materials used for instant lottery ticket production, prepaid phone card production or terminal manufacturing are significantly affected. Available supply from the paper and electronics industries tends to fluctuate and prices may be affected by supply.

        For fiscal 2002 and the first nine months of fiscal 2003, inflation was not a significant factor in our results of operations, and we were not impacted by significant pricing changes in our costs, except for

33



personnel related expenditures. We are unable to forecast the prices or supply of substrate, component parts or other raw materials in the remainder of fiscal 2003 or in fiscal 2004, but we currently do not anticipate any substantial changes that will materially affect our operating results.

        In certain limited cases, our lottery contracts with our customers contain provisions to adjust for inflation on an annual basis, but we cannot be assured that this adjustment would cover raw material price increases or other costs of services. While we have long-term and generally satisfactory relationships with most of our suppliers, we also believe alternative sources to meet our raw material and production needs are available.

        In the normal course of business, we are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates and equity market risks as we seek debt and equity capital to sustain our operations. At September 30, 2003, approximately 18% of our debt was in fixed rate instruments. We consider the fair value of all financial instruments to be not materially different from their carrying value at year-end. The following table provides information about our financial instruments that are sensitive to changes in interest rates. The table presents principal cash flows and related weighted-average interest rates by expected maturity dates. (See "Liquidity, Capital Resources and Working Capital.")

        Since 2002, we have been party to derivative contracts to hedge part of our foreign currency exposure with respect to future cash receipts under our contract with the Ontario Lottery Commission. These instruments, which have a notional value of 59.7 million Canadian dollars at September 30, 2003, have been designated as cash flow hedges. For the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2003, we recorded debits to other comprehensive income (loss) of $0.2 million and $6.5 million, respectively, for the change in the fair value of these foreign exchange instruments, bringing the cumulative total to a debit balance of $6.2 million.

        The following table provides notional amounts and interest rate information about our Canadian currency hedge derivative financial instruments. We do not hold any market risk instruments for trading purposes.

        We are also exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates as the financial results of our foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars in consolidation. Assets and liabilities outside the United States are primarily located in the United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Austria, Chile and Peru. Our investments in foreign subsidiaries with a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar are generally considered long-term investments. Accordingly, we do not hedge these net investments. Translation gains and losses historically have not been material. We manage our foreign currency exchange risks on a global basis by one or more of the following: (i) securing payment from our customers in U.S. dollars, when possible; (ii) utilizing borrowings denominated in foreign currency; and (iii) entering into foreign currency exchange contracts. In addition, a significant portion of the cost attributable to our foreign operations is incurred in the local currencies. We believe that a 10% adverse change in currency exchange rates would not have a significant adverse effect on our net earnings or cash flows. We may, from time to time, enter into foreign currency exchange or other contracts to hedge the risk associated with certain firm sales commitments, anticipated revenue streams and certain assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies.

        Our cash and cash equivalents and investments are in high-quality securities placed with a wide array of financial institutions with high credit ratings. This investment policy limits our exposure to concentration of credit risks.

Forward-Looking Statements

        Throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we make "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "estimate," "intend," "continue," "believe," "expect" or "anticipate," or the negatives thereof, variations thereon or similar terminology. The forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are generally located in the material set forth under the heading "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" but may be found in other locations as well. These forward-looking statements generally relate to plans and objectives for future operations and are based upon management's reasonable estimates of future results or trends. Although we believe that the plans and objectives reflected in or suggested by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, such plans or objectives may not be achieved.

        Actual results may differ from projected results due, but not limited, to unforeseen developments, including developments relating to the following:


        Actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We will not update forward-looking statements even though our situation may change in the future.

        We maintain "disclosure controls and procedures," as such term is defined under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

        As of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as required by Rule 13a-15 under the Exchange Act. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective. There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that has occurred during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
