INTRALOT S.A. has successfully migrated British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s (BCLC) retail lottery system to its innovative LotosX Omni ecosystem fully deployed on a Cloud technology stack. This achievement signifies a major milestone for INTRALOT in North America, while making BCLC one of the first lotteries in the world to adopt a fully cloud-based lottery system.

The system is now “live” with INTRALOT’s next-generation lottery terminals deployed in BCLC’s retail network and hospitality locations across the province of British Columbia.

Working together, BCLC and INTRALOT executed conversion of the Lottery’s central gaming system. INTRALOT’s cutting-edge LotosX Omni ecosystem will enhance the Lottery’s ability to provide innovative experiences that meet the evolving needs of its players, while maintaining the exceptional quality of its existing games and lottery entertainment services.

Parallel workstreams achieved a smooth roll out of around 8,000 lottery terminals in 3,400 locations, installing INTRALOT’s flagship PhotonX terminal as well as compact and self-service terminals. INTRALOT’s terminals will help transform BCLC’s retail operations with advanced features, enhanced security, improved user interface, and increased frontline productivity. Additionally, the deployed Digital Signage system will provide BCLC with the ability to dynamically communicate with retail players.

This project represents a landmark moment for INTRALOT, establishing a benchmark in the North American lottery market with the first end-to-end deployment of LotosX Omni in the region.

Pat Davis, President and CEO of BCLC, said, “BCLC is excited to introduce our new lottery system and terminals to our valued players across the province. This transition to the new INTRALOT LotosX Omni platform will help sustain and modernize B.C.’s lottery business and support future growth for the benefit of our communities. We look forward to working with INTRALOT as we continue to evolve our lottery offer.

We extend our greatest thanks to all INTRALOT and BCLC team members for their hard work and commitment to achieve this milestone conversion.”

Nikos Nikolakopoulos, Group CEO of INTRALOT, said “We’re honored to be a trusted partner of BCLC, supporting their digital transformation journey and underpinning their efforts for sustainable growth in the dynamic lottery landscape. INTRALOT’s lottery ecosystem helps BCLC simplify operations, deliver digital lottery experiences, achieve faster time to market, and optimize efficiency. We’d like to express our gratitude to BCLC for their trust and collaboration which ensured a smooth transition, while we stand firmly to supporting BCLC’s responsible growth of lottery proceeds directed towards health care, education, and community programs all across British Columbia.”

National Lottery operator, Allwyn, is this week launching a special edition Paris 2024-themed Scratchcard to celebrate how players support Team GB and ParalympicsGB when they play National Lottery games.

Featuring two designs – one centred on Team GB and the other on ParalympicsGB –the £1 Scratchcard has a huge top prize of £100,000 and an incredible five chances to win a prize. Allwyn worked with National Lottery funding distributor UK Sport to incorporate the special message: “By playing this game, you help over 1000 elite athletes who benefit from National Lottery funding”, which appears on the front of the card.

This is the first time that any National Lottery product has specifically highlighted the amazing support that players provide to Team GB’s and ParalympicsGB’s athletes simply by playing a National Lottery game.

The special edition Scratchcard – which has the iconic team logos emblazoned on the front of the two separate designs – forms part of Allwyn’s wider marketing and communications campaign to celebrate the unique role National Lottery players have in supporting sport in the UK. The great British public are right fully proud of the part they play in the success of Team GB and ParalympicsGB, and the campaign will celebrate how The National Lottery enables the UK’s athletes to pursue Olympic and Paralympic success.

In total, £1.5 billion of National Lottery funding has been invested into elite sport – with over 6800 individual elite athletes having been supported to chase their dreams since 1997. Through selling and buying National Lottery tickets, National Lottery retailers and their customers play a vital role in helping to support our brilliant athletes at Paris 2024 and beyond.

To make the most of the new “Best Gift Ever” campaign, which Allwyn launched last month, National Lottery retailers can talk to customers about the upcoming Summer Games and suggest gifting the Scratchcard to join in with the Paris 2024 excitement. June will also see a “Best Gift Ever” in-store takeover – featuring playstation inserts, posters, wobblers and counter cards – and this will provide further support for in-store sales.

National Lottery retailers should also look out for chances to win tickets to The National Lottery’s Team GB and ParalympicsGB Homecoming events later this year. More details about both events and how to win tickets will be available in the coming weeks.

Allwyn’s Director of Channel Operations, Alex Green, said: “We’re really excited about the launch of the new Scratchcard, as it’s the first time we’re connecting the success of Team GB and ParalympicsGB with the purchase of a National Lottery Scratchcard on the product itself. And with the iconic team logos and the special funding wording featuring front and centre, it’s hard to miss!

“The arrival of the Scratchcard in National Lottery retailers will also be an attractive proposition for players, with dual benefits of either playing or gifting this card. They’ll offer excitement at the prospect of winning the huge prizes on offer, in addition to a strong awareness that they’re playing their part in helping to fund UK athletes who are taking part in the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
