The system has been in circulation since last year already but has to date only been installed at a portion of the stores approved by the operator as official vendors. The system is mainly focused on ticket security and works by displaying the player’s game of choice on a digital display screen before dispensing the ticket, so that the retailer may hand over the ticket to the player.
