Szrek2Solutions and IGT Launch Szrek’s Automated Trusted Draw System for Florida Lottery
Szrek2Solutions (Szrek) announces the deployment of its Trusted Draw™ solution for the Florida Lottery’s debut of IGT’s patented Cash Pop™ game. Szrek2Solutions integrated their draw system with IGT’s lottery central system, providing the Florida Lottery with an automated draw system that enables Cash Pop’s frequent draws.
Szrek’s secure draw technology and independent audit offer complete draw transparency and proof of integrity of the winning results. IGT has partnered with Szrek2Solutions since 2019 to provide the Trusted Draw system to the Florida Lottery for its second chance drawings. The new Cash Pop game uses fully automated draws, where Trusted Draw is integrated with the central lottery system provided by IGT. All draws are automatically verified with Szrek’s Trusted Audit™ and Florida Lottery’s ICS system provided by Elsym. The new draw system can also serve as a backup draw system for all Florida Lottery games, including mechanical draws.
Jodi Ryon, Florida Lottery’s Deputy Secretary of Gaming Operations, said, “We were able to quickly deploy Szrek’s draw systems and build excellent capabilities for performing draws. The Florida Lottery is excited about the automated RNG and verification process.”
Rodney Wilson, IGT Florida Account Development Manager, commented, “We attribute the success of this deployment to the superb collaboration and teamwork with the Florida Lottery and Szrek’s team.”
Szrek2Soution’s CEO, Irena Szrek, echoed the enthusiasm, saying, “We are happy to join forces with IGT to offer the Florida Lottery draw automation with our unique draw technology and our integrity verification solution, to ensure full transparency and ease of their lottery draws.”
The Trusted Draw and Trusted Audit systems ensure that all winners are selected randomly, while offering verifiable draw results. Draws are triggered by the gaming system through an API, while draw results are generated using Szrek’s patented technology. After each Cash Pop draw, Szrek’s Multi Media Suite™ provides animated draw results for the Florida Lottery’s YouTube channel. Winning numbers are verified by Lottery’s auditors, using Szrek’s Trusted Monitor™ tool and independent Trusted Audit system, which mathematically proves the integrity of the selected winnings. Verification of the draw results is also performed automatically by the Lottery’s ICS system, comparing results from IGT’s gaming system and Szrek’s Trusted Audit system.
Similar electronic draw system deployments, integrating lottery gaming systems and Szrek2Solutions’ Trusted Draw are deployed in the United States and around the world. Public entities are shifting to automate their draw and gaming processes in order to ensure continuity of electronic draws with verifiable, provable draw results.
