National Lottery of Malta Back to the Status from 2004
After signing a license agreement with IGT in May and officially entering West Virginia, the industry’s fastest advancing iGaming software provider, EveryMatrix, is back to announce a partnership with the National Lottery of Malta.
Through this arrangement with a subsidiary of IZI Group plc, the company will have exclusive rights to provide online games, manage and operate the national lottery of Malta. This is also the first time in 18 years that the Maltese National Lottery will be run by a fully-owned Maltese company.
Lottery to Integrate IGT Retail Transaction Engine
As previously arranged, the National Lottery plc has chosen International Game Technology (IGT) as its lottery technology provider. Under the terms of this agreement, EveryMatrix will supply the lottery with its suite of online products.
Among the company’s long list of IT solutions for online casinos are also IGT retail transaction engine and CasinoEngine, which will be integrated into the platform for its better performance.
Thanks to IGT’s Aurora Anywhere, the National Lottery’s draw-based games will be available online on both desktop and mobile-focusing devices any time.
“We are very proud to be able to support National Lottery plc in this way,” commented Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix.
She believes that the company’s soon-to-be-delivered list of benefits will enable the national lottery to safely channel Maltese players away from any illegal or abusive secondary lotteries. Groes also highlighted the importance of integrating the world’s leading lottery system, which speaks volumes about the performance and scope of the deal.
According to Franco DeGabriele, CCO of National Lottery plc, the lottery is finally “coming home” after 18 years since the privatization in 2004. He is proud that the lottery will be operated for the first time by a wholly-owned Maltese company, whose mission is of course to provide the market with the best possible local service that is both innovative and of the highest levels of quality.
DeGabriele promised a great deal of investments in the systems over the upcoming months to ensure that the service always meets the highest standards and is compliant with rigorous frameworks.
