– Digitalisation of lottery business with adesso

– Sachsenlotto adds app for lottery players to its sales channels

– Intuitive, powerful and reliable app offers improved service 

The new app from IT service provider adesso has expanded Sächsische Lotto-GmbH’s gaming offer to include the mobile sales channel. Current user numbers confirm the concept for the recently launched mobile application, translating into a very successful first few months for the attractive, convenient app. Worthy charitable projects throughout society benefit from net lottery income, helping to make a positive contribution to the common good.

Sachsenlotto’s customers can use the app to play all LOTTO lotteries, from 6aus49 and Eurojackpot to KENO, GlücksSpirale and scratch cards, plus they can quickly and conveniently redeem tickets from their smartphone. The app, which launched in March, is part of adesso’s digitalisation strategy for Sachsenlotto. The mobile business complements the customer platform that adesso developed for the German state of Saxony’s lottery operator based on a broadly established industry solution.

The new Sachsenlotto app was developed for the Android and iOS operating systems. The UX-optimised app for mobile devices is intuitive and user-friendly. It features an attractive and easily comprehensible design and offers maximum security and reliability – all essential features for an app that is being used to make payments.

The development of the app enables Sachsenlotto to successfully expand its sales channels and services. Winings on tickets purchased online are displayed immediately in the app and optional via push notifications. Tickets purchased at lottery retailers can also be checked conveniently for wins by scanning the barcode with a smartphone. In addition, lottery players can now see whether they have won and how high their winnings are, wherever they are and at any time, regardless of whether they played via a mobile device, on the company’s website (sachsenlotto.de) or in-store.

Siegfried Schenek, Managing Director of Sächsische Lotto-GmbH, is impressed by the new, additional sales channel: “As a lottery operator, the app gets us closer to our customers. They can play more flexibly and use our portfolio on the go. The uptake shows that the offering has been well received. That is great because, as a state-authorised lottery operator, our net revenue is used to support charitable projects in the Free State of Saxony in the areas of environment, public welfare, youth, culture and sport.”

adesso currently supports the majority of the 16 German state lottery operators. The IT service provider has worked with Sächsische Lotto-GmbH since 2007. adesso helped design its website, sachsenlotto.de, which went live in 2017. The company’s IT experts ensured that the site met the needs of the mobile internet with state-of-the-are responsive technology.

As a partner to state lottery operators, adesso is a member of the European Lotteries and the World Lottery Association.

Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG) have today announced a new partnership for its automated affiliate marketing compliance tool GiG Comply, with German based operator Merkur.

The igaming industry in Germany is a robustly regulated marketplace, which helps make compliance a priority for operators like Merkur, placing an emphasis on the need to protect their brands. GiG Comply is an automated marketing compliance solution that scans web pages for content including links, iGaming code red words and regulatory requirements across multiple jurisdictions. It works by using its rules engine to analyse real snapshots from affiliates’ campaigns and provides operators with the promotional content that is being used in their brands’ promotions.

It is a flexible tool, which allows operators to set-up their own criteria and checklist parameters and can be tailored to cover any market-specific requirements, helping to ensure that operators remain compliant in multiple jurisdictions.

Jonas Warrer, Chief Marketing Officer at GiG, said: “It’s important that GiG Comply will continue to help Merkur, as it does our other partners, to remain proactive and in control of its marketing compliance. We’re delighted to be able to ensure affiliates are fully aligned with their brand and responsible gaming requirements.”

Martin Collins, Affiliate Lead at Merkur, said: “With everything we do here at Merkur Partners we aim to do it right, especially when it comes to compliance. All our brands are operated by local licenses both on and offline and where we abide by the rules. Having GiG Comply on board as a strategic partner is a great starting point as both sides come with a vast knowledge of the igaming world, and with ever changing regulations, we will make a great partnership.”

Pragmatic Solutions is very proud to announce, that Jokerstar Casino (www. jokerstar .de) is live in the regulated German online gaming market.

Kling was established in 1954. The third-generation family-run company operates 165 Joker casino arcades across Germany. One of the casino operator’s highest values is offering its customers the best quality. Therefore, both Joker arcades and their well-trained staff stand out compared to all their competitors. Germany-wide, around 1000 employees contribute to the casino operator’s success. Over the past decades, the company has continued to grow steadily on its solid foundation and is currently the sixth largest land-based operator. Kling is always seeking new opportunities and is therefore now boldly expanding Jokerstar into the regulated online market.

The establishment of the new regulatory regime in Germany to license and regulate online gaming presented an opportunity for Kling to expand their land-based business into the online sector. After a comprehensive vendor evaluation process, Kling chose Pragmatic Solutions to provide the platform technology to support this exciting new phase and ensure local regulatory compliance.

After many months of collaboration with Kling, Pragmatic Solutions implemented all the necessary regulatory controls to enable Jokerstar to meet the strict conditions of the German locally regulated casino market.  These measures included enforcement of deposit and betting limits, implementation of problem gambling controls including the “panic button” 24-hr instant cool-off period, integration with the OASIS national self-exclusion database, integrations with the LUGAS central monitoring database, and numerous additional operational and player-experience feature enhancements to give Kling a real advantage in the market.

Pragmatic Solutions is the platform technology sister-company of the industry content leader, Pragmatic Play. The company provides iGaming operators with enterprise platform technologies built around a core Player Account Management (PAM) platform. The Pragmatic Solutions PAM is designed using a modern microservices architecture and contains a player account, wallet, CRM tools, bonus management tools, payment tools, KYC/AML and fraud-prevention services, and is underpinned by rules-based automation throughout. In addition to the PAM, Pragmatic Solutions provides a Content Management System to power the gaming brand frontend clients and an Integrations Hub to connect the operator to many third-party content, payment gateways and services.

For Kling, Pragmatic Solutions presented a full-stack solution to accelerate their time to market and provide a solid technological foundation for Jokerstar.

Juergen Kling, CEO of KLING AUTOMATEN GmbH, explained their choice of Pragmatic Solutions by saying, “We are very excited about the new online opportunity for Kling, and we have ambitious plans for Jokerstar online casino. We have a long-term vision and need a technology partner that can help us enter the market successfully today and provide ongoing innovation and development support in the future to ensure that Jokerstar casino becomes a dominant player in the regulated German market. After a comprehensive evaluation process, we found Pragmatic Solutions to have the right technology, experience in regulated markets, and a strong commitment to supporting our business as we expand into online gaming. We are very excited and proud to announce the launch of Jokerstar.de and the next phase of our partnership with Pragmatic.”

Ashley Lang, Pragmatic Solutions’ CEO, commented on the announcement, “We are delighted to be working with Juergen and the team at Kling in this exciting project. We believe established land-based operators have great potential to lead in regulated markets and to support Kling we have made significant developments to the platform to ensure that it is fully compliant with both the transitional German regime that began on 15 October 2020 and the new Interstate Treaty on Gambling that came into force from the 1 July 2021. We could not be more pleased or proud to be supporting Kling in the launch of Jokerstar casino.”
