OLG to update lottery retail terminals

The Canadian operator has extended a partnership with French IDEMIA to update its terminals.

Canada.- Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has announced an extension in its partnership with IDEMIA, the French augmented identity solutions provider, in order to update its lottery retail terminals.

Thanks to this new technology developed by IDEMIA, OLG will be able to enhance its relationship with players and improve the customer experience. On the other hand and because of its industrial leadership and its capacity to innovate, IDEMIA has been able to design the ELITE-Terminals. This next generation solution enables lottery organizations to benefit from more than just a lottery terminal and will allow OLG to improve the retail experience for both customers and retailers.

For this long-term specific project, IDEMIA will work with OLG over the next 18 to 24 months to rollout 10,700 new terminals and associated ticket checkers in retail locations.

“IDEMIA is proud to work once again with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provide them with the next generation of camera-based Lottery Terminals. IDEMIA has a worldwide experience and the ability to implement, integrate, and maintain leading edge solutions in the lottery and gaming industry. To date, more than 60,000 units of ELITE-Terminals have been sold worldwide, showing strong success for this ground-breaking technology,” said Philippe Larcher, Deputy General Manager for Citizen Identity & Public Security activities at IDEMIA.

Greg McKenzie, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “Replacing and updating Lottery terminals will help improve the way OLG connects with customers in a responsible way. It’s part of OLG’s plan to ensure our technology is responsive to changing market expectations. New terminals will allow OLG to add more products and provide a better retail experience for customers, while delivering enhanced features for retailers.”
