LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA October 30, 2014 – Diamond Game is pleased to announce it has launched its LT-3 instant ticket vending machine (“ITVM”) in the province of Quebec. Diamond Game entered into an agreement with Société des bingos du Québec (“SBQ”), a subdivision of Loto-Quebec, in August 2014. The agreement is for a six month pilot program for Diamond Game’s LT-3 ITVM. As part of the agreement, Diamond Game has installed 32 ITVMs across four bingo halls in the province of Quebec.
Diamond Game’s LT-3 is a modern ITVM that dispenses break-opens and instant tickets, while displaying the result of the ticket with animation on a video screen. The ITVM configured for SBQ is a dual monitor kiosk that utilizes a popping symbols display and a 1-window break-open ticket with themed icons.
Diamond Game began installing the SBQ ITVMs on August 25, 2014 and concluded the installations by September 12, 2014. Each of the four sites received eight ITVMs, launching with four popular game themes: Lott’o Fruit, Mumbo Gumbo, Dynamite Diamonds, and Scatter Play.
The SBQ installations mark the fourth major North American lottery in which Diamond Game has installed machines in the last two years. Diamond Game has deployed similar ITVMs in Missouri veteran and fraternal clubs through the Missouri Lottery, in Maryland veterans’ organizations through the Maryland Lottery, and in Ontario bingo halls with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). “We are proud to expand our product to another major lottery and we are confident that our ITVMs in Quebec will be as successful as our ITVMs in other markets,” stated Jim Breslo, Diamond Game President and CEO.
Diamond Game designs, manufactures and services games and gaming systems for the public gaming, Native American and charity markets. Diamond Game continuously develops new and thrilling gaming experiences to meet the needs of a variety of gaming markets.
