Lake Image Systems provides Arcon Bulgaria Ltd., a 100% verification system for winning lottery tickets validation

Monday, November 30, 2015

The Sofia based Arcon Bulgaria Ltd., has chosen Lake Image Systems to supply the code reading and verification system for automating the validation of winning lottery tickets for a major Gaming and Lottery operator in Bulgaria. 

Using the latest area scan camera technology (mounted onto a transport system provided by Rotech Machines) and its flagship Discovery Multiscan software, the system reads a variety of codes printed on the lottery tickets and passes the data to an external system for verification. If a negative response is received, the lottery ticket is automatically diverted, in real time, so that it can be inspected further offline.

The system fully automates the current manual lottery ticket verification process, saving on labour costs, shortening the verification time back to lottery winners and reducing the business risk due to fraudulent or counterfeit lottery tickets.

“We are delighted with the Lake system and impressed on how well it has performed and met our demanding requirements for 100% verification of lottery tickets” said Hugo de Rijk, Area Sales Manager for Arcon. 

“Unlike other machine verification systems available today, we specialise in reading and verifying all types of printed codes with the highest levels of accuracy, integrity and speed.” said Martin Keats, Managing Director, Lake Image Systems. “Working together with other partners involved in this project, we are happy to be able to offer Arcon an inspection system that fully meets the requirements for one of their key customers.”
