Greek gaming and lottery supplier INTRALOT has successfully rolled out its voluntary pre-commitment system for a network of 28,500 electronic gaming machines (EGM) across the Australian state of Victoria.

Following the signing of a 12-year contract in August 2014, INTRALOT Gaming Services, a subsidiary of INTRALOT Australia, began a live field trial earlier this year to deploy and test the pre-commitment system in a real venue environment.

This was then officially rolled out earlier this month under the YourPlay brand across 28,500 EGM’s across the state, including the Melbourne Casino.

“INTRALOT has a successful track record in the delivery of demanding and challenging projects across geographies,” said INTRALOT group chief operating officer Nikos Nikolakopoulos. “We are extremely pleased to celebrate today the launch of an unprecedented voluntary pre-commitment scheme.

“We are confident that it is a great asset of the Victorian Government and will strongly support it in its endeavours to enhance Responsible Gaming across the state.”

Victoria’s Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, Jane Garrett, added: “The Andrews Labor Government is leading the way when it comes to the rollout of YourPlay. This is just one of the tools we are giving people to reduce gambling-related harm in the community.”

The pre-commitment scheme is voluntary for players, but it is mandatory to be offered on all gaming machines operating in Victoria.

Victorians will have the power to track and limit their betting on any electronic gaming machine in the state. The technology also allows players to limit their spending, track their time, and set personalised warning messages.

Shares in INTRALOT S.A (Co. Data) (ASE:INLOT) were trading at €1.30 per share in Athens earlier Wednesday.
