Allwyn is to partner with technology supplier MADIC UK to launch a prototype of new EPOS software integrated with The National Lottery.

Set to be unveiled at the National Convenience Show 2024, the new system will enable retailers to sell The National Lottery at any EPOS and self-checkout integrated with MADIC UK’s evoPOS solution, a first for the UK retail industry.

The technology aims to complement existing National Lottery terminals by offering more ways to sell National Lottery draw-based games conveniently to customers as part of other in-store and fuel purchases. It expects to increase sales opportunities for retailers, it works by printing Lotto, Set For Life, EuroMillions, Thunderball or HotPicks tickets on the EPOS till roll rather than via a standalone National Lottery terminal.

Allwyn’s director of channel operations Alex Green said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with MADIC UK as we continue to invest in the retail channel and in in-store technology for the future. Offering innovative, alternative ways to buy National Lottery draw games makes them available to more players, whether new or existing, and this helps with our primary aim of raising more money for National Lottery-funded projects – with more people playing a little.”

MADIC UK solutions management director Emma Baillie added: “An integration with The National Lottery and evoPOS has been on our customers’ wish list since we launched the product. Being able to work with Allwyn to offer this solution to all our customers in the future is a huge milestone in our product’s evolution.”
