George said “the SVL team has had an enviable partnership with GTECH, our technology provider for the lottery network in Jamaica. Through this partnership, we revolutionized the gaming industry in Jamaica, highlighted by the first completely wireless agent network and the introduction of on-time ‘live’ game draws on national television from the start-up of operations in June 2001. Additionally, SVL with the use of this technology2, was the first on-line lottery operator in the region and possibly the world, to offer top-up phone credit via lottery terminals. The significant investment which GTECH made in our operations has ensured that SVL operates with state-of-the-art technology and with the support of our advertising agencies, has provided a strong and well executed marketing program for our suite of lottery games.
