For this long-term specific project, IDEMIA will work with OLG over the next 18 to 24 months to rollout 10 700 new terminals and associated ticket checkers in retail locations. IDEMIA is also collaborating with Rogers Communication Canada Inc. as the Telecommunications Network Services Provider, with NCR Canada Corp. as the Lottery Terminal Support and Maintenance Services Provider and with FDJ Gaming Solutions (a subsidiary of la Française des Jeux), IDEMIA’s long-term partner, for the delivery of the Lottery Terminal middleware and associated remote management tools.
