National Lottery plc, a subsidiary of IZI Group plc, has just chosen iGaming company EveryMatrix as the online games provider for the National Lottery of Malta.
The IZI Group subsidiary recently won the concession to manage and operate the national lottery of Malta, taking over from Maltco Lotteries.
This means that, for the first time in 18 years, the country’s national lottery will be run by a fully owned Maltese company.
“[The company’s] mission is to provide the market with a service that is local, innovative, and of the highest levels of quality,” National Lottery plc CCO Franco DeGabriele said.
“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,” he concluded.
A member of the World Lottery Association, EveryMatrix delivers iGaming software, solutions, content, and services for casino, sports betting, payments, and affiliate / agent management to Tier One operators as well as to new brands.
The company employs over 650 workers across 10 offices and services 140 customers worldwide.
EveryMatrix will be supplying National Lottery plc with its suite of online products, thus integrating the IGT retail transaction engine into its CasinoEngine solution, the iGaming Integration Platform, via IGT’s Aurora Anywhere, making all of the National Lottery’s draw-based games available online, on both desktops and mobile devices.
“We are very proud to be able to support National Lottery plc in this way. 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,” EveryMatrix Group CEO Ebbe Groes said.
“The integration of the world’s number one lottery system provider speaks volumes about the performance of our platform,” he concluded.
This comes after Martin Saliba’s term ended after three years at the helm.
He first joined the organisation in 2015 as Head of Business Development
He leaves Esports Entertainment Group after a year as Vice President of Information Security.
Co-Founder Jörgen Nordlund will take over the position on an interim basis until a replacement is found.
