Sagem Sécurité delivers 26,400 new terminals to La Française des Jeux

Paris, October 21, 2008

Sagem Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) announces that it has been chosen by La Française des Jeux, the French lottery operator, to supply and maintain 26,400 ticket checkers (TC3 terminals). This success, which follows an intensive qualification phase, has given Sagem Sécurité world leadership in lottery ticket checkers.

The innovative electronic design of the TC3 ticket checker combines ergonomics, performance, security and exceptional connectivity. Its major advantage is high reliability coupled with total independence for all players, since they can quickly check their tickets by themselves. Thanks to these characteristics, the TC3 fully meets the lotteries' commitments in terms of transparency and security, while giving retailers and players access to additional services.

"We are very honored to have earned this mark of trust from La Française des Jeux," said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Sagem Sécurité. "The TC3 gives them all the benefits of our advanced technology and recognized expertise. The Ticket Checker is a perfect solution for lotteries anywhere in the world who want to offer a wider range of services to all players."

Each sales outlet in France will now be fitted with the TC3, allowing La Française des Jeux to establish the world's largest network of ticket checkers.
