Morpho and Loto-Québec deploy innovative lottery terminals in supermarkets

Paris, October 29, 2010

Morpho (Safran group) is deploying 1,830 S4 lottery terminals in supermarkets and drug stores in Québec, providing more than 850 stores with an enhanced gaming solution.

The S4 terminal, developed jointly with software expert LotSys and in partnership with Loto-Québec, is installed in checkout areas and gives players a real lottery receipt, identical to those printed by terminals at regular sales outlets. One main feature of the S4 terminal is that it requires absolutely no changes to the store's infrastructure, a major advantage for supermarkets.
"The prime factors in the success of this project are the partnership structure, sustained presence and outstanding collaboration with Morpho," said Denis Daly, Managing Director of Information Technologies at Loto-Québec.

Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Morpho, added: "The S4 project further strengthens the already tight bonds that our companies have formed in the last few years. Morpho and our partner LotSys delivered 8,960 S8 terminals and a download server to Loto-Québec in 2007, as well as 9,000 Ticket Checker terminals in 2008."

This contract further consolidates Morpho's position as a designer and manufacturer of innovative lottery solutions. With more than 200,000 terminals in service worldwide, Morpho is a major global player, widely recognized for its ability to supply solutions that meet the specific requirements of lottery organizations around the world.

Morpho and LotSys will be showcasing their lottery terminals and solutions at the upcoming WLA Trade Show and Convention in Brisbane, Australia, from October 31 to November 5, on Stand 47.
