The carefully planned and professionally executed implementation and conversion project led to an efficient and orderly transition for both the Lottery and retailers. The new DataTrak on-line gaming system was designed to support a large terminal base and to handle virtually any transaction volume with ease. The system ensures speed, reliability and security for all lottery transactions.
