With technology powering the new products and
channels launched by lotteries this year across North
America, what’s on the minds of most when it comes
to systems technology? Well, for one: It’s not your
grandfather’s system any more.
Players are changing, game entertainment is evolving,
and lotteries are on the lookout for technology
that enhances the consumer’s experience, retailer
operations and data security. They’re also keenly
focused on the ability to bring new products – in some
instances, from multiple different vendors – to market
as quickly as possible to ensure relevance.
“We’re living in a world where integration is driving the
player experience, and open architecture is a mandatory
requirement” says Walt Eisele, CTO, Lottery for
Scientific Games. “Lotteries are charged with maximizing revenues, and to do that they are going to have to bring the best, most relevant
game entertainment available to their players, and bring it to
them in a seamless, cohesive way no matter which vendor
supplies the content or the enabling platform.”
