Digital experiences provider mkodo has released a significant app upgrade of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s (BCLC) official app which now offers customers the functionality to purchase and check lottery tickets.

Following an extensive update, the native iOS app is now fully transactional so customers can register, login, deposit funds, withdraw funds and purchase lottery tickets for national and regional games

Players can also scan retail tickets to instantly see if they are a winner.

The fully iOS native app is compliant with Apple’s updated guidelines which requires apps to be standalone and sufficiently different from a Safari browsing experience.

Stuart Godfree, Managing Director and co-founder of mkodo, said: “We first launched BCLC’s Ticket Scanner app over a year ago, but customers have been regularly asking to have the functionality of easily purchasing lottery tickets via mobile, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer BCLC’s customers this option and hope they enjoy the new experience.

mkodo has extensive experience from working with lotteries as well as betting and gaming clients, which include the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, Grosvenor Casino, Mecca Bingo and Danske Spil.

The supplier was recently granted an Associate Membership to the World Lottery Association in recognition of its status as a respected supplier to the global lottery sector.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Loto-Québec reported total revenues of $1.415B for the first half of the 2019–2020 fiscal year, while consolidated net income reached $736.0M.

QUOTE

“Since 2015–2016, our total revenues for the first six months of the year (for the same number of days) have increased by $127.2M (+9.9%). During the same period, tightly managed expenses have helped boost our consolidated net income by $110.3M (+17.6%). All our sectors contributed to this increase,” said Lynne Roiter, President and CEO.

HIGHLIGHTS

Lotteries

  • Revenues from this sector decreased compared to the same period in 2018–2019. The decline was expected, as an exceptionally high number of Lotto Max Maxmillions was offered last year.
  • A total of 24 prizes of $1M or more were won in Québec during the second quarter.

Casinos

  • This sector, which includes Loto-Québec’s brick-and-mortar casinosonline casino and gaming halls, saw its revenues grow.
  • Two themed event series attracted visitors to the casinos during the second quarter: Futuristik and Vegas.

Gaming establishments

  • The video lottery terminal (VLT) network reconfiguration plan will produce its full effects this year. Consequently, revenues from VLTs located in areas targeted by the removal of terminals declined. Revenues from bingo and Kinzo halls continue to grow.

Note: There were six more days in the first half of this year compared to the same period in 2018–2019.

The quarterly report is available on Loto-Québec’s website.
