INTRALOT S.A. announces the signing of a contract between BCLC, which operates lottery on behalf of the Government of British Columbia and INTRALOT Inc., its US subsidiary to provide a lottery central system with its novel platform Lotos X, its holistic lottery solution that includes INTRALOT’s cutting edge lottery terminals with their innovative camera based technology along with additional software products, and ongoing maintenance services. The contract is for an initial 5-year term that can be extended up to another 6 years.

BCLC completed a public procurement process for new lottery terminals and software in 2017, and entered into a contract with Novomatic Lottery Solutions (NLS). However, in October 2018, BCLC and NLS agreed to use the contract assignment provision to assign the contract to INTRALOT, which was already working on the project as a provider of terminal hardware.

In January 2019, BCLC conducted a subsequent public procurement process for Gaming Engine Services with INTRALOT as the successful bidder.

Enhancements underway at BCLC include new lottery terminals, stand-alone ticket checkers, printers and display units, as well as the related software systems. Once launched in fiscal year 2021/22, the project will support the evolving needs of retailers and players with a faster purchasing experience, enhanced functionality and a more user-friendly terminal.

The upfront value of BCLC’s contract with INTRALOT for the implementation of the new lottery terminals and systems, and Gaming Engine Services, is CAD 24.5 million and is included in BCLC’s capital budget through to fiscal year 2021/22.

INTRALOT’s Group Deputy CEO, Mr. Nikos Nikolakopoulos commented: “We are pleased to have been awarded by BCLC with a new contract to deliver our next-generation lottery solutions which will drive players’ engagement and transform their playing experience. This agreement represents a significant milestone for INTRALOT entering the Canadian market, offering our industry-leading product portfolio to enable long-term innovation and constant growth, ultimately generating more revenue for the benefit of the Province of British Columbia community”.

PBSA Introduces Peerplays RNG
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association (PBSA) has introduced the next generation random number generator, Peerplays RNG, which allows both players and operators to verify the randomness of spins, actions, and games.

Peerplays RNG uses Graphene-based blockchain technology to generate a random number from secret hashes. The technology guarantees provable randomness that can be verified in real-time.

Peerplays RNG was designed with the belief that trusting randomness in private code simply was not good enough for the expectations of today’s generation. Utilising the latest blockchain technology to ensure complete and provable randomness, achieved via a distributed ledger interface that generates and stores random numbers on the blockchain, PBSA is confident in the RNG’s ability to transform the world of gaming on a global scale.

“At a time when the online gaming industry is facing something of a trust problem, Peerplays RNG can deliver verifiable randomness designed to show players and operators that games are fair. For too long, random number generation has been considered something of an afterthought by games suppliers. Peerplays RNG delivers a next generation RNG with added functionality that can bring incremental benefits to games suppliers, operators, and their customers,” PBSA said.

“We have already received considerable interest in the product from game developers who believe like we do, that verifiable, trustworthy solutions in games are what this generation of gamers deserve. The first of these innovators will be announcing their partnership in the coming weeks,” PBSA added.
