Tatts to migrate NSW Lotteries IT platforms

Service provision contracts to be reviewed.

Gaming company Tatts Group plans to migrate NSW Lotteries to its nationwide technology system.

The move followed the company's $850 million purchase of NSW Lotteries from the NSW Government, which will allow it to conduct state-wide public lotteries exclusively for 40 years.

According to the agreement, Victoria-based Tatts Group would be required to provide a technology plan and adhere to regulatory framework set by the NSW Parliament.

NSW Lotteries relied on US-based GTECH as well as an in-house IT Services team for its technology demands.

It managed an online gaming system that processed 286 million transactions during the 2008-09 financial year, and its agents were connected via a Telstra IP network.

Tatts spokesperson Michael Mangos told iTnews that any of NSW Lotteries' service provision contracts would be reviewed.

"Tatts intends to move to a single technology solution across the three states of operation in NSW, QLD and Victoria, leveraging our own in house technology department," he said.

"As for other service provision contracts, they will be reviewed in light of integration and the legal construct of those agreements and Tatts other technology suppliers."

According to a statement from NSW Treasurer Eric Roozendaal, NSW Lotteries employees were offered an employment guarantee, transfer payment and the option to remain with the NSW public sector.
