♦ Veikkaus launches geolottery Naapurit

Lottery players in Finland have big reasons to celebrate as the Finnish State Lottery Veikkaus launches a daily geolottery under the local name Naapurit (”The Neigbours”) on May 5th 2014.

”Naapurit is a moderngame that features a more social form of lottery. We believe in the idea that winning together is more fun”, says Veikkaus CEO Juha Koponen. ”Veikkaus strives to be a leader in the industry and we are excited to be among the first one’s to launch a geolottery format.”

The innovative twist in Naapurit is that players participate using their home address. Winners are drawn in a raffle and secondary prizes are distributed among ticket holders who live the closest to the main winner. As the game’s tagline puts it: ”You win if your neighbour wins.”

The Naapurit lottery will be accompanied by a prime-time TV show on two TV-channels and tickets will be sold via mobile and Internet as well as at lottery retailers. One entry is valid for all draws during a calendar month and players will have the option of subscribing to the game. The gameis expected to reach an annual turnover over 100 million Euros.

The Nabor geolottery is a patent pending game format created and licensed by the Swedish provider Genera Networks.

”Nabor is the first format that makes lotteries relevant to younger players by creating other drivers than the possibility of a big win”, says Maria Sandell, CEO of Genera Networks. ”It is a game about winners, the places they live in and the stories they tell.”

VEIKKAUS is a Finnish lottery for Finnish players. It offers high-quality gaming entertainment reliably and responsibly, producing each day over EUR 1,1 million of lottery revenue for the Finnish society. Veikkaus contributes the bulk of its proceeds to the Finnish State, which distributes it further to Finnish arts, sports, science and youth work.

♦ Genera reaches 64% market share in Norwegian VLT market

Stockholm 2014-02-27
The games of Genera Networks reached a market share of 64% in December 2013 in the Norwegian VLT-market. The Norwegian VLT-market had a net revenue of 65 million Euro in 2013. The games are provided to the monopoly operator Norsk Tipping in their Multix terminals.
- In two years of operation we have proved that the new kid on the block can outperform companies like Aristocrat, Spielo and Scientific Games/WMS, says Maria Sandell, CEO of Genera Networks. In 2014 we project that our VLT-games will generate a net revenue in excess of 45 million Euro for Norsk Tipping.

Following the success in the VLT market, Norsk Tipping will launch Genera lottery format Nabor in the second quarter of 2014. The Nabor format, where neighbours win with neighbours, will be launched with distribution in all channels and a prime time TV-show.

Genera has signed one more contract for the Nabor format with a leading European lottery for launch later in 2014.

- Our goal for this year is to multiply the GGR of our games by five from 2013, states Maria Sandell. I can think of no other game provider that has started from zero and in three years reached a GGR in excess of 100 million Euro.

♦ Genera wins lawsuit against Postcode Lottery

Stockholm 2013-01-18
Genera Networks and Norwegian national lottery Norsk Tipping have won a full victory in a Norwegian court of law with regard to the allegations made by Nova Media, the Dutch parent company of the Postcode Lottery. Nova Media had claimed that Genera and Norsk Tipping breached the Norwegian Marketing Act by producing a copy of the Postcode Lottery.

“The decision in our and Norsk Tipping’s favour was expected by Genera and is clear in its wording”, said Jan Stocklassa CEO of Genera. Paraphrasing the court decision:”When comparing the different elements in the Postcode Lottery and Nabolaget (Note: Norwegian name for Nabor) the two concepts are seen as so different that it cannot at all be considered an imitation of an original product.” (Translated from Norwegian)
