ast year, Intralot USA won the right to operate the Ohio Lottery Commission's gaming system and it has now been selected by the Ohio Department Of Administrative Services to develop, refine and implement instant ticket and related cooperative support services in the state.
The two-year contract is expected to generate approximately us$ 5.5 million per year and begins in July with three additional two-year extension clauses. "We look forward to leveraging Intralot's instant gaming technologies to increase lottery revenues generated for public education in Ohio," said Michael Dolan, Director for the Ohio Lottery Commission.
Intralot will provide instant ticket data processing, warehousing and overall management for the instant ticket and gaming supply inventory in addition to management and staffing for the state's telephone-based instant ticket order and distribution system.
"We are very satisfied that the Ohio Lottery Commission, after our first contract, has selected Intralot to provide additional services," said Constantinos Antonopoulos, Chief Executive Officer for Intralot. "Being a partner of the Ohio Lottery is a great honour that strengthens our determination to offer unique, pioneering products and services to improve the Lottery's performance."
The Ohio Lottery began in 1974 and now ranks as the tenth largest in the United States with total sales of us$ 2.3 billion last year alongside instant sales of nearly us$ 1.4 billion. "The technology solution that we will provide Ohio will increase operational efficiencies and revenue for Ohio public schools," said Tom Little, President and CEO for Intralot USA. "We are thrilled about the opportunity to deepen our working relationship with Ohio Lottery Commission to benefit the citizens of Ohio."
