Lottery purchases to go paperless in Sweden


The flourishing industry in the year 2020 has definitely been the gambling and casino industry.

The revenues of the gambling companies have skyrocketed since onset of pandemic as people resorted to online gambling as a means of entertainment.

Lot changes have been made in this sector with companies now focusing on development of online gambling ecosystem.

The changes will take few years to get materialized fully, however, small steps are visible in this direction.

The above context refers to decision of Swedish gambling industry to go paperless lottery purchases.

Svenska Spel in Sweden is testing paperless lottery ticket purchases.

The working system, according to Calvin Ayre, involves “lottery players selecting their numbers and have them registered through digital devices that are connected to Svenska Spel’s network, foregoing the printing of any ticket stubs to be carried around in wallets”.

Svenska Spel’s Torgny Lilja said: “We had a meeting with [Pressbyrån operator] Reitan about a year ago where we presented the self-service screens connected to a new surface-efficient platform. Reitan felt that this should suit their customers and staff. The advantage for Pressbyrån’s employees is that they also save time by not having to top up coupons and update campaign material”, reported Calvin Ayre.
