Sagem Sécurité and Loto Québec develop innovative supermarket lottery solution
Paris, February 18, 2010
Sagem Sécurité (Safran group) has been selected by Loto-Québec, following a trial period, to design, produce and install nearly 2,000 S4 lottery terminals. These terminals will be installed this year at checkout counters in supermarkets and drug stores in Québec.
The S4 terminal features a compact design and WiFi wireless connectivity, making it perfectly suited to checkout areas. Fast and easy to use, it instantly gives players a real lottery receipt, identical to those issued by gaming terminals at regular sales outlets. The S4 terminal is totally independent from the store's cash register system, and requires no changes to supermarket infrastructures. The terminal was designed in partnership with Loto-Québec.
"Sagem Sécurité's solution meets the needs of lottery organizations worldwide, and allows Loto-Québec to extend its network and diversify its sales outlets, while at the same time facilitating the ticket buying process for players," said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Sagem Sécurité. "This contract spotlights the excellent potential of the S4 terminal, and further bolsters the long-standing partnership between Sagem Sécurité and Loto-Québec."
This latest contract further consolidates Sagem Sécurité's position as a designer and manufacturer of innovative lottery solutions. With nearly 200,000 terminals in service worldwide, Sagem Sécurité is a major global player, widely recognized for its ability to supply solutions that meet the specific requirements of lottery organizations around the world.
