Arizona Lottery partners with Mkodo’s GeoLocs

October 4, 2023

The Pollard Banknote company will provide geolocation services to the lottery's Lucky Lounge platform.

The Arizona Lottery, via its partner Mkodo (a Pollard Banknote company), has chosen GeoLocs to enable the launch of its new Lucky Lounge online sweepstakes platform. This marks the entry of Mkodo’s geolocation services into the US market.

The Lucky Lounge is a platform that links to the Arizona Lottery’s Pollard PlayOn loyalty/Player Engagement platform that currently gives Arizona players access to digital games, the purchase of tokens, and the chance to enter and win sweepstakes.

Managing Director of Mkodo Stuart Godfree said, “Mkodo is excited to partner with the Arizona Lottery in support of its sweepstakes program. Following its early 2023 launch, we’re pleased to further establish GeoLocs as a compliance provider in North America.”

Over 100 million tokens have been used throughout the Lucky Lounge, while thousands of players take part in online games and competitions. Pollard Banknote and Pollard Digital Solutions have used GeoLocs’ services for over 10 years.

GeoLocs will use this data and assist with the maintenance of the lottery’s necessary compliance with Arizona regulations. The service is designed to purposely provide solutions to the iGaming industry.

Chris Rogers, Deputy Director of Marketing and Products at Arizona Lottery, said, “GeoLocs was the perfect choice for Arizona Lottery’s geolocation verification needs.

"The technology and expertise behind GeoLocs, as well as the knowledge of regulations and compliance in the region, has been a fantastic support and is what made the GeoLocs offering stand out as we implement geolocation within our offering.”
