The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) and Szrek2Solutions (Szrek) announce that ASL is launching Szrek’s Trusted Draw 360 Electronic Draw Solution. Trusted Draw 360 will provide automated random number generation for ASL’s main lottery games, including Cash3, Cash4, and the Natural State Jackpot lotto game. The Lottery has selected an automated draw solution from Szrek, due to its reliability and security. Lottery Director Eric Hagler says, “The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery executive team saw a distinct benefit in moving to an automated draw system. We selected Szrek2Solutions as our vendor due to their significant experience with such systems.”
The Szrek draw system in an automated configuration will simplify and streamline ASL’s Lottery operations, guarantee draw continuity under all conditions, and ensure draw integrity. Szrek2Solutions has been providing automated draw systems since 2005 and has a perfect track record regarding availability and reliability of draws. “We’ve always been a strong advocate of automated draw solutions where draws are triggered automatically. This eliminates the need for staff to perform draws, simplifies operations, and lowers costs.” Helena Pereira, Vice President, Szrek2Solutions.
The Trusted Draw system ensures cryptographic randomness of all draw results and draw nonrepudiation: as part of the random number generation, it creates proof of draw integrity, which is verified by the Trusted Audit system. The audit platform mathematically proves integrity of these random numbers and the associated game data. Any integrity issues that may happen due to hardware deterioration, software errors, or potential fraud will be detected. This will enable the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery to prove integrity of the draw results and draw process for every draw, immediately after, or any time later.
