National Lottery of Malta selects EveryMatrix as online provider

Igaming software provider EveryMatrix has inked a deal with IZI Group subsidiary, National Lottery, which will see the supplier provide online games to the National Lottery of Malta.

Under the terms of the agreement, EveryMatrix will make all of the National Lottery’s draw-based games available online, on both desktops and mobile devices, by integrating the IGT retail transaction engine into its CasinoEngine solution via IGT’s Aurora Anywhere.

“We are very proud to be able to support National Lottery in this way,” noted Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix. “We believe the benefits delivered by our system will enable the national lottery to safely channel Maltese players away from illegal or abusive secondary lotteries. 

“The integration of the world’s number one lottery system provider speaks volumes about the performance of our platform.”

Having selected IGT as its lottery technology provider, and EveryMatrix to supply its suite of online products, these partnerships follow National Lottery having recently won the concession to manage and operate the National Lottery of Malta.

Franco DeGabriele, CCO of National Lottery, added: “After 18 years since the privatisation of the national lottery of Malta in 2004, the lottery will be operated for the first time by a wholly-owned Maltese company, whose mission is to provide the market with a service that is local, innovative and of the highest levels of quality.

“We will invest in the systems to ensure the service offered meets the highest standards and is built on the most rigorous compliance frameworks. Our digital innovation will put Malta on the global map, and we will work closely with the authorities to eradicate all forms of lottery abuse.”
