BCLC has awarded Novomatic Lottery Solutions (NLS) the contract to replace its current lottery terminals. NLS was selected as the successful vendor after a thorough procurement process, and a proof of concept evaluation.

BCLC is replacing lottery terminal devices, stand-alone ticket checkers, printers and display units including the software needed to manage and operate this hardware. The new lottery terminals will better serve our players and our lottery retailers across B.C. The new equipment will provide retailers and players with a faster purchasing experience, enhanced functionality and a more user-friendly interface.

BCLC’s current terminals are more than 12 years old and approaching the end of their lifecycle. The replacement of these legacy systems is part of BCLC’s plan to sustainably grow and modernize BCLC’s lottery business, and ensure lottery continues to remain relevant to new and existing players.

NLS’ solution was determined as industry leading and the best fit for BCLC’s needs. This is a flexible solution that can be easily integrated within the business, and will serve the organization for years to come. Novomatic is a global leader in the gaming industry and a proven vendor for other areas of BCLC’s business including Casino and eGaming.

This represents a significant business investment in BCLC’s lottery retailers and demonstrates the important role our lottery retailers play in our overall lottery business. The value of the contract with NLS is approximately $22 million.

BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information visit GameSense.ca.
