Intralot signs pre-commitment deal in Victoria

26 August 2014

Greek-owned gaming and lottery operator Intralot has agreed a deal with the Victorian State Government in Australia to implement a voluntary pre-commitment scheme for up to 30,000 electronic gaming machines (EGM) across the state.

The agreement will run for 12 years, from December 2015 until August 2027.

The scheme will be voluntary for players but will be mandatory to be offered on all gaming machines operating in Victoria.

Players will be able to set time and loss limits on any EGM, track their play across the state and electronically access their personalised information at any gaming venue or via the internet.

Systems will be installed throughout 2015 until the official launch next December.

The Victorian Government selected Intralot as the preferred provider in September 2013, with the service agreement successfully negotiated through a technical and commercial due diligence process.

“The Victorian Coalition Government welcomes the agreement reached between the state of Victoria and Intralot and looks forward to continuing to work with IGS to deliver a world leading voluntary pre-commitment system for Victorian gaming machine players,” Minister for Liquor and Gaming Regulation, Edward O’ Donohue, said.

John Pantoleon, chief operating officer of Intralot, added: “Following the successful implementation of the monitoring licence project in Victoria, we are very pleased to move together with the State to deliver such a world leading initiative in the important field of responsible gaming, since this is a core element of Intralot group strategy around the world.”
