New terminals feature faster document processing times and middleware from FDJ Gaming Solutions

Canadian provincial lottery operator the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has extended its partnership with French augmented identify solutions provider IDEMIA to update its lottery retail terminals. 

The camera-based ELITE-Terminals have been designed to improve the retail experience for both customers and retailers, offering faster processing times for documents such as play slips, receipts and instant tickets.

The machines can also design innovative play slips for special events, helping the OLG and its retailers boost sales through promotions. 

For the project, IDEMIA will work with OLG to roll out 10,700 new terminals and associated ticket checkers across the lottery’s retail estate over the next 18 to 24 months, replacing a number of legacy IDEMIA machines. IDEMIA is also working with Rogers Communication Canada, which is providing the telecommunications network for the proejct, and NCR Canada, which is providing support and maintenance services. 

It is also collaborating with FDJ Gaming Solutions, a subsidiary of La Francaise des Jeux, for terminal middleware and associated remote management tools. 

“IDEMIA is proud to work once again with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provide them with the next generation of camera-based lottery terminals,” IDEMIA deputy general manager for citizen identity and public security activities Philippe Larcher said. “IDEMIA has a worldwide experience and the ability to implement, integrate, and maintain leading edge solutions in the lottery and gaming industry. 

"To date, more than 60,000 units of ELITE-Terminals have been sold worldwide, showing strong success for this ground-breaking technology.”

OLG chief operating officer Greg McKenzie added: “Replacing and updating ;ottery terminals will help improve the way OLG connects with customers in a responsible way. 

“It’s part of OLG’s plan to ensure our technology is responsive to changing market expectations,” he explained. “New terminals will allow OLG to add more products and provide a better retail experience for customers, while delivering enhanced features for retailers.”
