Virginia is the first US state to operate completely on a cloud-based system.

The Virginia Lottery has reached a milestone by becoming the first US lottery to operate its iLottery via a cloud-based program, according to NeoPollard Interactive (NPI). NPI released an official statement that recognized the state lottery for its achievement.

The Virginia Lottery has been powered by NPI since 2016, when the group first launched its eSubscriptions. Part of the lottery’s recent cloud implementation included NPI’s central gaming system (CGS) for draw games, NeoDraw and Neoplay, an eInstants remote gaming server (RGS).

Virginia Lottery Executive Director Kelly Gee said: "The Virginia Lottery is committed to providing a best-in-class experience to our players.

"Enhancing the scalability of our iLottery platform through the use of cloud technology demonstrates to our players that we place a priority on a seamless and reliable iLottery experience, all of which ultimately supports our mission to raise revenue for our public schools."

NIi supplies the North American market with iLottery solutions. The company currently serves the largest share of US state lotteries that offer players online purchase options.

NPi Co-CEO Doug Pollard commented: "We recognize the need to continually refine our offerings based on emerging and evolving technology. Delivering our iLottery solution through the cloud will enable us to better serve the Virginia Lottery and other iLottery programs that are powered by NPi.

"We value the trust the Virginia Lottery placed in us to deliver this innovative solution."

NPi Co-CEO Moti Malul added: "Record-breaking jackpots over the last few years have generated significant traffic online, underscoring the need for iLottery programs to effectively respond to player purchase demand.

"By harnessing the enhanced capabilities that only cloud hosting provides, we can better support the growth of our lottery clients as they strive to meet and exceed player expectations."
