Greek lottery gaming systems provider INTRALOT has finalised an agreement with OPAP to operate the gaming monopoly’s central IT system and to continue to provide hardware and system software solutions.

INTRALOT will also supply OPAP with services for the operation, maintenance, technical support and system evolution, with the contract running until July 2018.

Under the terms of the deal, all existing data and functionalities will be migrated to a new central system, with the LOTOS O/S open architecture product upgraded to an enhanced version of the solution.

OPAP will also have access to software including the iFLEX sports betting platform, the data warehouse system and its loyalty programme Players’ Club.

INTRALOT will provide on-site maintenance for points of sale equipment, support centre services, data centre business operation support services and continuous development services for application software.

INTRALOT chief executive Constantinos Antonopoulos commented that he was glad to continue to supply one of its longest clients with state-of-the-art technology.

“Our aim is to support the new management of OPAP in their endeavour to continue to modernize the Greek gaming market and offer to the players the most entertaining gaming experiences,” he continued. “INTRALOT’s cutting-edge solutions guarantee that OPAP enters a new era with the most trusted and secure technology in the lottery sector.”

The renewal of the partnership follows the launch of a GTECH-powered online sports betting product under the brand earlier this week.
