Athens-listed gaming and lottery supplier Intralot has secured a new ten-year supply contract with German state lottery operator Lotto Hamburg.

The company’s Intralot Global Operations subsidiary was awarded the contract following a competitive tender process.

Intralot has provided systems and services, including its LOTOS game management system, to Lotto Hamburg since 2006, with the new contract including the provision of a new upgraded platform to support the operator’s strategic and operational objectives.

This will see Intralot roll out its L10 central system product, an upgraded LOTOS platform, terminal software for the operation of 450 terminals, as well as an interactive gaming platform and content management system.

“As result of an extensive tendering process we tasked Intralot with implementing a new lottery suite based on LOTOS 10,” said Lotto Hamburg managing director Michael Heinrich. “The lottery suite will cover all processes and distribution channels of our lottery business.

“We are convinced that we will get a future-proof system meeting all our requirements for adapting to customer needs and legal changes much faster and at less cost because of its new modular and micro-services-oriented architecture. We know the professionalism and efficiency of Intralot since 2006, so we are looking forward to a smooth customization and implementation process followed by another 10 years of successful operation and cooperation.”

Intralot Group chief commercial officer Nikos Nikolakopoulos commented: “We have been working for Lotto Hamburg for more than ten years now, and this new contract award will strengthen more our relationship, while in parallel it proves that we have met Lotto Hamburg’s strategic and operational objectives as well as our good track record and successful presence in Germany.

“We are honoured by Lotto Hamburg’s trust and we are committed to provide the best solution in terms of security, reliability, technology, products, cost-efficiency and services, coupled with a true partnership approach, which will provide considerable advantages to the stakeholders and customers of Lotto Hamburg GmbH.”
