RFP: New Zealand Lotteries Commission (Lotto NZ) Bingo Platform and Games

Hits: 1253


Title: Bingo Platform and Games


The New Zealand Lotteries Commission (Lotto NZ) currently operates New Zealand’s only regulated Lottery business with 100% of profits being returned to benefit New Zealand communities.
Lotto NZ currently offers the sale of Lottery products including both Draw based games and physical Instant Tickets via a nationwide retail network of over 1,800 point of sale devices and an online sales presence that provides customers access to both Draw based games and online Instant Win Games delivered through a responsive website and smartphone applications.

This Opportunity in a Nutshell
Lotto NZ’s digital sales through web and app now represent just over 35 percent of total Lotto NZ sales.

Currently we offer Lotto, Powerball and Strike, Keno and Bullseye draw-based games, as well as over 39 instant win games via our website (www.mylotto.co.nz) and the Lotto NZ app.
Bingo presents a strong opportunity to achieve this product expansion with a product that both complements and helps to broaden the appeal of our existing portfolio. It’s very important to us that growth is achieved in a responsible manner, so harm minimisation will be a focus for realising this opportunity. Online Bingo is a large global industry, and by offering Bingo online, Lotto NZ will provide a safe, trusted alternative to the offshore Bingo sites New Zealanders are currently playing on.

Lotto NZ exists to generate funding for NZ communities, with 100% of our profits providing vital support to thousands of charities and organisations every year. The addition of online Bingo provides an opportunity to grow our business, and therefore the contributions we make to the Lottery Grants Board. Lotto NZ is now ready to enter the market as the first licensed New Zealand-based provider to offer Bingo online as a legal, trusted and responsibly delivered proposition.
