Atlantic’s 3,000 locations across Canada are comprised of the New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador provinces. All of these have been earmarked by Atlantic Lottery for its lottery rejuvenation project, which will see the tech modernisation of the network.
Joey Cormier, VP of Channels for Atlantic Lottery, said of the retail technology shift: "Atlantic Lottery is excited to support our plans for retail evolution over the next five years with advanced technology at point-of-sale. We are delighted to have advanced terminals for our retailers, and we are aligning with rapidly moving modernisation trends taking place at retail.
“An advanced, modular central gaming system from Scientific Games was implemented for Atlantic Lottery in 2017. In addition to retail and gaming systems technology, Scientific Games supplies Atlantic Lottery with a full digital lottery system and player subscription services and is the primary provider of its successful Scratch‘N Win games.”
Scientific Games said that the Wave terminals being installed are ‘designed for ease of use and speed of service in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of different retail environments.’
Meanwhile, John Schulz, President of Americas & Global Instant Products for Scientific Games, said: “As retailers adapt to workforce challenges and consumer convenience, advanced retail point-of-sale technology is crucial. We will see retail technology, including self-service, have an increasingly important role in driving lottery performance.
“The Atlantic Lottery’s new systems infrastructure implemented with Scientific Games supports the Lottery’s ability to adapt swiftly to ensure relevance, growth and sustainability in a rapidly changing world.”
