Viewpoint Creative Secures Multi-Year Design and Animation Contract with Massachusetts State Lottery, Revamps Iconic Keno Game After 30 Years

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / December 12, 2023 / Viewpoint Creative, an acclaimed full-service creative studio and a subsidiary of Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), is thrilled to announce its extensive partnership with the Massachusetts State Lottery, specializing in digital graphic design and animation services. The agreement builds on the success of yesterday's state-wide launch of the redesigned presentation of the Mass Lottery's Keno game. The focus of Viewpoint's services will primarily revolve around enhancing the Mass Lottery's monitor game product line, encompassing both design updates for existing games and the potential creation of graphics for new game launches.

Viewpoint Creative is already well underway with its initial collaboration with the Mass Lottery, where they are in the process of refreshing the visual identity of Keno, one of the state's most beloved games. Their aim is to modernize the game while preserving its familiar user experience.

According to David Shilale, Viewpoint's Executive Producer, "Keno is a cultural fixture in Massachusetts, and we consider it a privilege to be involved in this project. We're leveraging our design expertise to work closely with the Lottery in evolving the game's aesthetics while maintaining its user-friendly interface."

Mark William Bracken, Executive Director of the Massachusetts State Lottery, explains, "As the nation's longest-running Keno game, with the best odds and the highest prizes, our objective was to enhance the gameplay experience while retaining all the elements that make the game so popular. Keno generates over one billion dollars in sales annually, and we are excited to provide our wide audience of players with a modern visual experience featuring high resolution graphics."

While Viewpoint Creative handled the design aspects, they partnered with Deep Five, specialists in design systems, for the animation coding. The collaboration has been seamless, as stated by Viewpoint's design director, Dave Allen: "We're extremely pleased with the exceptional work Deep Five has contributed. Their creativity, technical skills, and collaborative approach have been outstanding."

The Keno project will be followed by a customized Keno skin created for the Mass Lottery's partnership with the Boston Bruins. Additionally, updates to other games and the potential development of new monitor games are on the horizon.
