National Lottery plc, a subsidiary of IZI Group, has chosen Melita Business to provide the communications infrastructure required to run the country’s national lottery.

The former company will be taking over from Maltco Lotteries as the operator of the National Lottery of Malta from 5th July 2022, distributing games such as Lotto, Super 5, and a number of other games for a 10-year period.

“Taking over the administration of the national lottery of Malta and transitioning it in such a tight timeframe to be ready for launch of 5th July has been a big challenge which we have managed very well,” IZI Group Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) Franco Degabriele said.

“Our ambition, however, is not just to complete a successful transition, but to deliver an improved experience for customers and for our agents within the retail network that lasts for the years to come,” he continued.

In the run-up to this transition, Melita Business has deployed fibre-powered 1,000 Megabit fixed internet to over 200 National Lottery retail outlets across the Maltese islands.

The company will also be hosting all of National Lottery plc’s key equipment in its two ISO 27001 certified data centres and provide high capacity and high availability connectivity between sites over its dedicated fibre network.

“Melita Business has enabled us to build the required infrastructure through the delivery of a communications network that fulfils our requirements across all our points of sale in the market,” the IZI Group CCO added.

“We are also glad that together with Melita we have been able to deliver the service within a very tight deadline,” he concluded.
