New Terminals Rolled Out
New lottery terminals are currently being rolled out across the UK following a pilot programme that 98% of lottery retailers reported as being satisfying. The new terminals feature cutting edge technology that will allow media content to be streamed onto digital screens, as well as increasing the speed at which tickets are issued.
Sarabjit Singh Kalher runs a Londis store in Slough, and his store happened to be one of the first in the UK to receive the new terminal. “The new terminal takes up far less space and looks very good,” Mr Singh said. “It’s working very well – it’s fast, easy to operate and the instructions that come up on the terminal are very clear. The digital screen is also a great way of reminding our customers about the latest jackpots, especially when there’s a big Rollover to be won.”
As well as installing the new lottery terminals, Camelot are also providing retailers with comprehensive training on how to use the new technology to serve customers faster and more effectively by taking advantage of the following features:
• The facility to print brand new National Lottery Fast Pay Cards.
• Faster printing speeds than currently available using existing terminals.
• Touch screen technology.
The new lottery terminals and training are being positioned now so that the National Lottery can hit the ground running when Camelot’s third lottery licence period starts in February 2009.
“The National Lottery is in great shape for the start of the third licence next year,” said Martin Pugh, who is the Commercial Director at Camelot. “We have a proven track record of innovation, social responsibility and delivering for Good Causes – but all of this is only possible with the enthusiasm, vigilance and hard work of our retail partners.”
Mr Pugh went on to say: “Rollout of the new Altura terminals, digital media screens and communications equipment, together with our ongoing commitment to first-class training, will ensure that all of our retailers are up and running ahead of the new licence next year. I’m confident that they will continue to make the absolute most of selling The National Lottery in their outlets over the coming months and years, and raise even more money for Good Causes – as well as boost their own bottom lines.”Monday 11th August 2008
