Playport™ and Abacus Solutions International Partner to Provide In-Lane Digital Instant Win Games to Lotteries and Retailers
Partnership to provide lotteries and retailers with hundreds of digital instant win games at the cash register
LONDON, UK, and OVERLAND PARK, KS – May 14, 2019 – Abacus Solutions International, a leading retail in-lane software solutions company, and Playport Gaming Systems, a real-money digital instant win game technology company, today announced a partnership to work with North American lotteries to distribute Playport’s digital gaming products through Abacus retail partners.
Abacus is the only vendor that specializes in providing in-lane software solutions to the lottery industry. Abacus’ unique fully managed service offering, Lottery Everywhere, enables the sale of lottery tickets on virtually any point of sale device.
Playport will incorporate its patented gaming technology with Abacus’ in-lane systems solution, allowing Abacus retailers to sell real-money digital instant win games using their existing point of sale systems.
“Abacus understands what the lotteries and retailers need to implement in-lane solutions and provide a seamless customer experience,” said Marina Bogard, Chief Executive Officer of Playport Gaming Systems. “We are delighted to be integrating Playport’s digital instant win games platform to the Abacus in-lane solutions portfolio and provide retail customers a frictionless process in the purchase and play of instant win games.”
By adding Playport to Abacus’ existing systems integration, retailers enjoy the operational efficiencies of a single barcode scan, making the sales transaction for instant win games the same as for other in-store products. Additional benefits include eliminating both the high cost of ordering and managing inventory for printed game tickets and the cluttering of retail space with extra sales and merchandising hardware.
“We are always evaluating innovative technologies that provide value to our lottery and retail customers,” said Simon Butler, Chief Executive Officer of Abacus Solutions. “By integrating Playport Gaming Systems, we enable retailers to drive incremental revenue, lower costs, improve the consumer shopping experience and offer new engaging games and content. This is all accomplished by utilizing the existing point of sale infrastructure.”
