The Quality Group Lottery Solutions GmbH delivers new Lottery Management Platform for Eesti Loto
October 2019 – PRESS RELEASE – The Quality Group Lottery Solutions GmbH (TQG-LS). As part of a public tender process, the Estonia state lottery – Eesti Loto – has opted for the lottery management platform “TQG-LotterySuite” from the German lottery expert TQG Lottery Solutions GmbH. Eesti Loto commissions TQG to implement the TQG-LotterySuite, which will be further expanded as part of the introduction of Eesti Loto. A 5-year contract with extension options is agreed.
The lottery market in Estonia is firmly in the hands of the state lottery company Eesti Loto (www.eestiloto.ee).
Secure online gaming ensured
A decisive factor in the decision in favor of TQG-LS was that the standard TQG-LotterySuite already offers important functions for the secure and successful operation of the Internet sales channel, which is so important for Eesti Loto. The player management, for example, has extensive marketing support. Games Management is an automatic component of the TQG Lottery Suite. This allows both existing and new games to be easily configured.
“As a result of the procurement, we get the expected flexibility of a modular and completely scalable platform to provide our players with convenient operation and new products. The player management system together with the web portal is the first and central component in the process of a comprehensive upgrade of the lottery information system”.

Focus on player development
“With the TQG-LotterySuite, Eesti Loto has a practice-oriented lottery management platform that enables it to map current and future lottery requirements very economically. The focus is on the continuous development of players under the aspects of responsible gaming,” says Karsten Hagemeister, COO and responsible for Business Development at TQG-LS.
End-to-end lottery management system
The TQG-LotterySuite is an end-to-end lottery management system that demonstrably meets the requirements for safe and efficient gaming operations. In addition to a high-performance transaction engine, the system contains the central functions for controlling games and customers. The TQG LotterySuite encompasses all sales channels. The system is a modular, flexible and completely scalable platform. It is based on principles of modern development of standard solutions. This ensures fast project implementation. The system offers all relevant functions of a lottery management system. Customer-specific adaptations can be easily integrated. The TQG-LotterySuite is hardware independent. Back-office applications of third parties are supported via standard interfaces.
The core of the system is the high-performance and secure transaction engine in connection with the configurable games management. The comprehensive customer management (Player Management) enables a holistic view of the player across all sales channels. In consideration of the Responsible Gaming requirements, the platform offers optimal possibilities to support the player.
Customer management is supplemented by optional modules such as subscription management, player card management and syndicates, which can also be managed offline. The TQG-RMS (Retail Management System) is available for connecting the sales outlet network. This is based on a thin client architecture and includes the Retail Manager, the Terminal Manager and the Terminal Content Manager.
The open interface concept makes it easy to connect with all relevant partners and integrate existing applications. The system is hardware-independent and can be easily connected to various terminal hardware, central systems and third-party products.
The database-driven system is based on the latest Java standards and can be operated with standard tools. Due to the application server technology used, load-dependent clustering of the application is possible at any time. It has interfaces in the latest REST and SOAP technologies that can process a large number of transactions.
The system has a configurable, plugin-based security system for all transactions. This allows LTG to store transactions exclusively in text files and/or databases, for example. A combination of both variants is also possible at any time by using the corresponding plug-ins. Thus, for example, country-specific plug-ins for digital signatures, encryption or dedicated multiple redundancy can be integrated. In this way,
With Eesti Loto, TQG-LS receives another state lottery as a customer. New functions will complement the standard software and are automatically available to all other TQG customers as part of the normal software release.
