OGT Cyber Games- A Success Story in New Jersey
01.31.2005
MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada (January 31, 2005) -- Exclusive supplier to the lottery industry to offer powerful and strong brands such as Slingo® and Tetris®, Oberthur Gaming Technologies (OGT) in partnership with the New Jersey Lottery and INGENIO, a subsidiary of Loto-Qubec, successfully launched the Internet version of these two brands in the course of 2004.

"Since the launch of Cyber Slingo® and Tetris® more than 5.5 million access codes have been played to achieve New Jersey E-game sales of over US $13,000,000 in 2004. Cyber Slingo® and Tetris® have provided incremental revenues, without cannibalizing any other instant games!" said Foster Krupa, Marketing/Instant Product Manager of the New Jersey Lottery. "With limited resources and investment, and in partnership with OGT and INGENIO, we were able to generate additional revenues to benefit Education and Institutions in New Jersey."

"With sales adding up to more than US $13 million US, there's no doubt that OGT Cyber Games have found their niche in New Jersey and reached a new category of consumers. We definitely changed the global picture of lotteries, and we won't stop there!" added Andr® Nadeau, Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Strategic Development of Oberthur Gaming Technologies. "With Cyber Games", we have reinforced our competency and our reputation as the lottery partner No. 1 for offering turnkey solutions to help our clients grow their business. Cyber Slingo® and Tetris® are great games and the stepping stone to the upcoming OGT Cyber Games Portal, and even more."

Following the resounding success in New Jersey, other lotteries have already stepped in and other North American lottery organizations will soon launch the product in their market.
