Access Gaming Systems launches SMS Mobile Gaming, The Industry's Leading Interactive Lottery solution now provides SMS Gaming.

The European Lotteries Congress (Stand Nos. 44 - 47)

Cannes, France
27th May, 2001

    Access Gaming Systems (AGS),  a leading provider of secure, proven and certified Interactive Gaming Solutions to the regulated Lottery market, will be launching its SMS Mobile Gaming Solution at the European Lottery Congress.  The SMS Mobile Gaming solution allows lottery operators to offer Draw and Instant Games to players via their Mobile Phone.  The solution uses the ACES secure and proven Internet Gaming engine (ACES) to operate and administer the games.

    Players can play a game simply by registering once with the ACES system and sending an SMS message containing their Personal Identification Number and their chosen game numbers.  Lottery operators can send players reminder messages asking players to play or informing them of jackpot amounts and other news.  European Lottery Delegates will be able to play the game at the show by visiting the AGS stand nos. (44 - 47).

    La Francaise des Jeux, the French National Lottery, and host of the European Lottery Congress is currently using the ACES System for Internet Games.

About AGS Interactive Gaming Solution

    The AGS Interactive Gaming solution called ACES, provides a secure, proven and government certified gaming engine.  The solution provides a web-based management information system and operations center that allows gaming operators to operate and run their internal workflow processes as they would like to.  ACES was architected from its conception to allow gaming on multiple interactive media and was originally designed for use on Interactive Television.  The flexibility of the ACES architecture has allowed for the rapid development of the SMS Mobile solution.  The ACES system now provides functionality to run all types of Lottery games: including Lotto, Oddset and Instant Games.

    Interactive and Innovative Instant Games are the biggest contributor of revenues to Internet lotteries.  Access allows its clients to create new and innovative games concepts such as "Football Penalty" and "Pharaohs" using its Game Development Kit (GDK) technology.

Games Development Kit (GDK)

    The GDK is a concept that is unique to Access. It allows clients and third party games developers to create their own new games using the ACES software platform. Rather than being locked in to using Access to develop their games, operators can use their own creativity, or work with independent game developers to generate new games that give them a competitive advantage. This provides Access licensees with the greatest possible choice for sourcing their games, allows them the scope to use third party game developers to customise their games, and promotes the Access platform as an industry standard.  Access lottery clients have also started to cross licence successful games to each other.
