ITHUBA’s philosophy is to select partners that represent best practice in key operational areas relevant to the successful operation of a lottery system.
ITHUBA has partnered with an international technology service provider, GTECH, who will provide the back-end operating system for the lottery machines. GTECH is a leading supplier of lottery equipment and services worldwide, operating on all continents and employing over 8500 individuals worldwide in 52 countries. The company has customers in 114 countries.
Services & Maintanance
ITHUBA itself will be responsible for field services and maintenance of the machines to ensure that only a very small percentage of the revenue leaves the country.
Restoring of Trust
This selection was made based on the robustness and integrity of the GTECH system and a major drive to restore trust in the technical aspects of the South African National Lottery system.
