Germany – Scientific Games’ new Era Optical Technology modernises lottery retail experience in GermanyBy Phil - 5 December 2023
Scientific Games will bring the company’s new, camera-based lottery retailer technology to LOTTO Bremen in Bremen, Germany.
The company’s high-performance Contour.v moves the lottery retail experience beyond reliability to maximum transactional transparency for both retailers and players. Scientific Games will install Contour.v terminals at LOTTO Bremen retailers, in addition to providing the cloud-based SYMPHONY terminal management system.
Michael Barth, Managing Director for Bremer Toto-Lotto GmbH, said, “Moving to more advanced lottery terminals across the LOTTO Bremen network brings us another step closer to modernizing the lottery experience with Scientific Games, our longtime technology provider. We are confident that this is a very positive move that will be well-received by our retailers and players.”
LOTTO Bremen is the first in-market implementation of Contour.v. Offering both clerk and player HD screens, contactless player interactions and mobile features, the Contour.v terminals represent Scientific Games’ new-era optical technology. Contour.v was innovated by the company as part of its newest line of high-performance Contour terminals to meet evolving market demand in integrated lottery retail and digital environments.
The camera-based terminals feature an easily viewable and accessible ticket scan area and HD screens configurable for both clerk and player view, the Contour line of terminals was designed with durability and an unparalleled user experience in mind. A sleek, uni-body eliminates unnecessary parts, making the terminals extremely reliable. Unique, advanced optics technology enhances the speed of service. The Contour terminals also offer easy processing and a variety of options for ongoing software upgrades.
“As our first Contour.v terminal and SYMPHONY terminal management system customer in Germany, we applaud LOTTO Bremen on its innovative vision and leadership in Germany toward modernizing the lottery retail experience,” said Matthias Müller, VP of Strategic Sales & Marketing for Scientific Games.
