Intralot Nederland has signed an extension contract with the Nederlandse Staatsloterij/De Lotto, which have just announced their merger and the establishment of a new gaming entity.
The extension contract has a three-year term, until April 2019, with an option to extend for one additional year. The extension of the contract follows an initial successful six-year operation, which was sealed in 2008 after a dual international tender conducted by both lotteries.
Under the terms of the extension contract, Intralot will continue to provide its best-in-class LOTOS O/S platform, along with the related services, connected to its 5,000 proprietary terminals, blended in a unique tailor made POS solution for the Dutch Lotteries.
Intralotalso provides a Prime and a Disaster Data Center, a call center for retailers and players, added to the industry-leading product solutions and services offered that will continue to facilitate the operations of the new merged entity.
Nikos Nikolakopoulos, Intralot Group COO, stated: “We are very pleased to continue our excellent cooperation with the two Dutch Lotteries, which are now entering a new era, as a new merged entity. Intralot has managed to design and deliver unique solutions for one of the most technologically advanced projects of our sector worldwide. We are happy to assist both long-term customers with novel gaming solutions in their combined new operation and we appreciate their trust in our capabilities underscored by this contract renewal.”
De Nederlandse Staatsloterij and De Lotto currently operate jointly a wide portfolio of games, including traditional lottery games (Staatsloterij and Miljoenenspel); numerical games (Lotto, Eurojackpot, Lucky Day), a full Sportsbook branded Toto (including Fixed Odds betting and Poolgame Toto-13) and Instant Tickets. These games are offered both in retail and online.
