Swedish Lottery Operator Svenska Spel selects Safran Identity & Security’s ELITE for the renewal of its lottery terminals

The Swedish lottery operator Svenska Spel has extended its partnership with Safran Identity & Security through the acquisition of 3,000 lottery terminals including middleware application, a download server and associated services.

Under the contract, Safran Identity & Security will deliver its latest ELITE lottery terminal, using cutting-edge imaging technology (camera) which offers high efficiency, reliability and user-friendliness for retailers. The ELITE terminal includes enhanced services such as the authentication of ID documents and retailers through the fingerprint recognition. The middleware supplied with these terminals as well as the download server will be developed in partnership with Lotsys, a subsidiary of the French lottery operator, la Française des Jeux.

We are honoured by this latest mark of trust from Svenska Spel. Through this new contract, we have once again confirmed our ability to provide lottery operators with innovative turnkey solutions.
