Lotto24 is on Track for Success
- Strong growth in in billings and
- Significant reduction of cost per
- Expansion of market leadership, left
HAMBURG, Germany (March 24, 2016) -
2015 was a successful year for Lotto24 AG, Germany's leading provider of
state-licensed lotteries via the Internet. The annual financial report,
published today, confirms the KPIs reported preliminarily in January. Billings
and revenues both increased in 2015: by 67% from EUR 81.7 million to EUR 136.3
million and by 75% from EUR 7.7 million to EUR 13.5 million, respectively. At
the same time, the gross margin improved from 9.5% to 9.9%.
With this growth, Lotto24 increased
the market share from 21% in the previous year to 26%. According to information
released by the German Lottery Association ("Deutscher Lottoverband"), online
sales of the 16 state lottery companies and private brokers grew from EUR 390
million in 2014 to around EUR 520 million in 2015 and thus accounted for 7% of
total German lottery sales in 2015 (prior year: 6%).
Petra von Strombeck, CEO of Lotto24
AG: "In 2015, we again expanded our market leadership. 2015 was also the year
in which we reached major milestones and left the start-up phase. We are very
confident that we can continue on this successful course in 2016."
Aided by the very favourable jackpot
trends of "Lotto 6aus49" and "EuroJackpot", as well as by efficient marketing
activities, Lotto24 gained a total of 361 thousand new customer registrations
in 2015 (prior year: 284 thousand) and thus easily exceeded the figure forecast
in September of at least 320 thousand new customers.
This is the highest number of new
customer registrations Lotto24 AG has ever gained in a single fiscal year since
its foundation. On 31 December 2015 the number of registered customers amounted
to 883 thousand (prior year: 521 thousand).
Cost per lead (CPL) was strongly
reduced by around 27% to EUR 32.99 (prior year: EUR 45.16). The marketing
expenses amounted to EUR -11.9 million (prior year: EUR -12.8 million).
As planned, Lotto24 successfully
completed the insourcing of the IT in the fourth quarter 2015. This enables the
company to meet their own development needs more quickly, flexibly and easily
in future and gives technological independence.
Already in the first quarter 2016,
the new products "Keno" and lotto clubs were integrated on the online
Despite the investments made in
expanding the market leadership and setting up the own IT department, the
operating result (EBIT) amounted to EUR -13.4 million (prior year: EUR -14.2
million) and the net result for the period improved to EUR -10.8 million (prior
year: EUR -16.0 million).
Lotto24 AG is well prepared to
consolidate and to further expand its market lead.
The quarterly announcement as of 31
March 2016 will be published on 12 May 2016.
About Lotto24 AG: Lotto24 is
Germany's leading provider of state-licensed lotteries via the Internet
(www.lotto24.de). Lotto24 brokers customers' tickets to the state lottery
companies and receives brokerage commissions without bearing the bookmaking
The offerings include "Lotto
6aus49", "Spiel 77", "Super 6", "EuroJackpot", "GlücksSpirale", lotto
clubs and "Keno". After its foundation in 2010 and the IPO in 2012 on the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard), Lotto24 is now the clear market
leader and well ahead of the competition.
As a fast-growing company with a
strong service and customer orientation, it aims to provide its customers with
the most convenient, secure and modern game experience possible.

Game is Making Millionaires and Changing Lives
TRENTON, N.J. (March 30, 2016)
Since the New Jersey and New York Lotteries launched the CASH4LIFE game
on Monday, June 16, 2014, it has been making millionaires and changing the
lives of players across the participating states. Recently, New Jersey players
have been on an unprecedented winning streak.
The game began with an exciting win
right after launch when a New York ticketholder had the honor of claiming the
first top-prize of $1,000 a Day for Life from the June 23, 2014 drawing.
Shortly after, New Jersey players Christina and Vikram Bahadur claimed the
first second-tier top prize win of $1,000 a Week for Life from the July 21,
2014 drawing. Their lucky retailer was Molly Pitcher Exxon, 4211 Route 9 North
On Oct. 16, 2014, New Jersey sold a
second-tier prize winning ticket to Charles Hope, a Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania
resident. A promotional event was held at his lucky retailer, Hainesville
General Store, 283 Route 206 South, Branchville in Sussex County.
New Jerseys first top-tier
prize winners were Joseph Ianiro and John Opaluch from Hasbrouck Heights. They
bought their winning ticket from Nicks Quick Stop, 183 Boulevard,
Hasbrouck Heights in Bergen County for the Nov. 13, 2014 drawing. They shared
their winning story with various news outlets and recently appeared on the HGTV
television program My Lottery Dream Home, as they shared the
excitement of selecting their new home with the public.
On Jan. 5, 2015, New Jersey
celebrated a second-tier prize winner, Luis Rivas, from Port Chester, New York
as he purchased the winning ticket from Shoppers Express, 525 Avenel St.,
Avenel in Middlesex County.
New Jersey had another top-tier win
from the July 27, 2015 drawing which was claimed by Lundavra, LLC, of Bergen
County, owned by Julie Tung. The year ended with an incredible string of New
Jersey successes with winning tickets sold for the Dec. 10 (second-tier), Dec.
24 (top-tier), Dec. 31 (second-tier) draws.
Then, the New Year came charging in
with a top-tier win on Jan. 21, 2016 followed by two second-tier prizewinning
tickets being sold, one in New Jersey and the other in Pennsylvania from the
Feb. 18 drawing. Again, on Feb. 22, two more second-tier prizewinning tickets
were sold in New Jersey and in New York. All of the 2016 tickets remain
unclaimed as of this writing.
We were fortunate to meet our Dec.
10 winner, Rosa Delon, a beautician from Passaic in Passaic County. She claimed
her second-tier prize in January. She discovered that she was the big winner
when she went to her retailer, Luigis Liquors, 175 Jefferson St.,
Passaic, to buy her weekly games. While she was there, the store owner checked
the ticket and, I saw the machine doing something, Delon said. The
first thing that Delon said that she will do with the winnings is to write a
$10,000 check to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. In addition, she
will buy a house and help her family financially.
We were also fortunate to meet Wade
Boyle and Kathryn Soistmann, owners of the Soaring Birdhouse, LLC of Camden
County, who claimed the top-prize from the Dec. 24 drawing. Mr. Boyle purchased
his ticket on Christmas Eve but hadnt check the numbers until the
Boyle self-checked the ticket and
received the See Clerk message on the machine. We met the winners
at the end of January at headquarters. They told us that they have six
grandchildren between them and aside from paying their own bills, they will
help their families. An Alaskan land and sea vacation also appears to be on the
horizon for the couple.
Boyle has been playing the Lottery
since it began in 1970. When the CASH4LIFE game was launched, he liked the
concept and began playing it immediately. It is now a part of his favorite mix
of online games including Powerball, Mega Millions and Pick-6. Boyle continues
to play Lottery because as we know, anything can happen in Jersey. His lucky
retailer is Winslow Citgo, 172 Route 73, Braddock in Camden County.
Edward Harley from Randolph, N.J. in
Morris County claimed his second-tier winning ticket from the Dec. 31, 2015
drawing by mail. Harley has been playing the Lottery since it began. ShopRite
Liquors of Rockaway, 439 Route 46 East, Dover in Morris County is Harleys
lucky location but not his typical lottery stop. While he was in the store, he
decided to add a ticket to his purchase. It was fate, Harley
said. For now, he is still planning on how he will spend the cash but said,
I am going to keep on playing.
The lucky Lottery retailers that
sold these winning tickets also benefit. For selling a top-prize winning ticket
they each receive a $30,000 bonus commission and for selling a second-tier

HAMBURG, Germany (March 22, 2016) --
Every two years, the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) and the
Deutscher Lotto- und Totoblock (DLTB) in a detailed monitoring data report on
the spread of gambling and thus associated problems in Germany.
The report "gambling behaviour
and gambling addiction in Germany" was released today in Berlin at a press
conference by Peter Lang Head of the BZgA, Barbara Becker, chairman of AG

The results of the BZgA study show
how correct the decision of the legislature was, gambling in Germany regularly

The significant risks and economic

Attention should be drawn to another

This form of gambling is becoming increasingly popular, therefore, the
legislature of 2012, Experimental phase agreed with this offer.
This under the premise, whether
sports betting can be offered so that their potential for addiction not
realized by appropriate protection of players and corresponding
An important indicator is the
reliability of providers and a consistent approach infringements of the clear
legal provisions. These write, for example, maximum bets before, prohibit
certain types of live bets and strictly prohibit in particular the Parallel
supply of illegal gambling such as online poker.
"The strong increase in the
number of young men 18 to 20 years in illegal sports betting services are the
result of a reckless betting on the growth strategy of the supplier, the
illegal advertising with massive and deliberate violations of statutory player
protection rules act, which punished by the supervisors in extremely inadequate
way will. An analysis of operating in the German market betting provider and
recent public Statements of its protagonists show that the international gaming
industry based in Malta, Gibraltar and Asia in addition to an aligned only on
the profit motive sports betting market an establishment of online poker and
online slot machines and sports betting is just as the Einfalltor for the very
large business look ", said Torsten Meinberg, CEO of LOTTO Hamburg and

One of the studies shows very

Regimentation games of chance.

Commologic CEO Tamir Berler on why
lotteries must find innovative ways to compete on product when it comes to
(March 31, 2016) -- For sports
lotteries around the world, legislation remains the primary challenge to
offering an engaging and competitive sports betting product.
Those lotteries with a presence in
the vertical, particularly Canadas provincial lotteries and state
lotteries in the Nordics and Asia, are under constant pressure to create
compelling propositions in the face of tough offshore competition.
With regulation prohibiting many of
these lotteries from rolling out a comprehensive offer, like in Canada where
the ban on single sports bets remains in place, the challenge is magnified.
In-play is another area where sports
lotteries are often stymied and are fast losing ground on those who operate
outside of the tight regulatory restrictions often imposed.
Add increasingly harsh tax
impositions on global gaming, and it is clear that to make a sports betting
product work, lotteries must find innovative ways to engage a larger segment of
their core audience.
Our upcoming product, BetUP, takes a
different approach to sports betting, with a focus on engagement and audience

As a softer betting product, it fits
naturally within a lottery operators product suite, and is easily
integrated to existing sportsbook offers.
An innovative format sees entry fees
pooled and jackpot prizes awarded for the best performing players in a
tournament-style in-play game. This approach allows operators to offer the
thrill of live betting wagering without the associated regulatory headache.
It also targets casual sports fans
by stripping away complicated sportsbook odds and presenting a betting game
which focuses on action and engagement.
BetUP will shortly go live in Europe
with Unibet. In testing on major soccer matches, weve found that many
users have said they found our product more engaging the match they were
While our early focus has been
soccer, the format is perfectly adaptable to different sports, making it ideal
for new jurisdictions.
In the North American market, the
game will be particularly well suited to sports which tend to have a greater
amount of downtime than their European equivalents.
We found that in the UK, only 15% of
soccer fans are engaged with online betting. This number is likely to be even
lower for equivalent North American sports, and this presents a huge
opportunity to tap into a new demographic of players.
Existing sports lotteries have
tended to focus on extending the product offer as a way of driving engagement
But the products themselves
particularly when they take the form of a standard sportsbook with
functionality limited by legislation have not kept pace with the needs
of the industry.
This will change as new innovative
products hit the market. Against the backdrop of punitive taxation regimes,
lotteries have been placed in a position where they must innovate or die.
As new jurisdictions begin to open
up to online gaming, lotteries are presented with a great opportunity to expand
their product offer and capitalise on the demand for engaging content.
Those which adapt and ensure they
offer innovative new products are the ones which will make the biggest impact
in new verticals.

Contracts for Heilongjiang Province Position DJI Holdings in Readiness for the
Return of Online Lottery Sales
Significant new contracts
for Heilongjiang Province joint venture
CHESHIRE, U.K. (March 30, 2016) --
DJI Holdings plc (AIM: DJI, "the Group", "DJI"), a licensed promotion solutions
and service provider of Chinese sports and welfare lottery products to third
party retailers and direct to consumers, is pleased to announce significant new
contracts for its joint venture with Heilongjiang Sports Bureau ("HSB") for
The addition of new lottery services
supported by DJI in this significant province is the latest initiative by the
Group in anticipation of the lifting of the temporary suspension of lottery
sales in China, whilst central government develops a better regulated lottery
landscape. To that end, the joint venture aims to provide a complete lottery
solution for Heilongjiang, spanning content, promotion and new media, working
with major strategic partners in e-commerce and digital broadcasting.
DJI, through its joint venture with
HSB, Longti, has secured an exclusive service agreement to operate sports
lottery scratchcard sales across Heilongjiang Province. Under the agreement,
Longti has full responsibility for all marketing and promotion of this key
lottery product, sales of which totalled RMB 635m (GBP70m) in 2015, and it will
receive both a marketing fee and share of revenues for its services. A further
initiative to develop and launch online sales of physical scratchcards is
already underway. The incremental revenue generated from scratchcard activity
in Heilongjiang is expected to be substantial in the current financial
In addition, Longti has been granted
a contract by the Heilongjiang Sports Lottery Administration Centre to launch
DJI's sports betting platform on the province's official website, along with
the provision of news, analysis and exclusive information. The platform will
promote sports betting during the forthcoming Euro 2016 football tournament,
which is expected to be an important revenue-enhancing event for the lottery
industry, and will also support in-store lottery sales throughout the province.
The online promotion of this land-based lottery will be enhanced by a new
loyalty programme offering bonus points to players, which may be converted to
digital game tickets in all lottery stores across the province.
An important aspect of the HSB
relationship and these latest contracts is increasing access to data regarding
the province's lottery players. When online lottery sales return, such data
regarding consumers' activity online and their appetite for gaming will be
valuable. DJI will continue to use this key advantage to expand its marketing
platform, which may then be used to distribute new, revenue generating
DJI will utilise its exclusive
Chinese lottery partnerships with both Arsenal and Manchester City football
clubs, as well as other sporting relationships, to promote and support
Heilongjiang's sports lottery with unique tailored content and 'money can't
buy' special football club gifts and prizes.
The JV's provision of content will
be extended by the anticipated roll out this year of DJI's high-frequency
virtual sports betting game, which was trialled in-store during 2015. Further
games are at an advanced stage of development, with approval expected in the
second half of 2016.
Heilongjiang, located in the north
east of China, is the country's sixth largest province by area with a
population of approximately 40 million. HSB operates, or is responsible for,
all sports lottery activities in the province. In 2014 revenues from these
activities were RMB 7.03bn (GBP773m), an increase of more than 60 per cent per
Update on Heilongjiaing Sports
Bureau joint venture
In September 2015, DJI announced a
cooperation agreement with HSB to establish a joint venture with the primary
aim of providing funding and support services to all of HSB's commercial
activities, especially football and Winter sports. HSB owns and/or operates an
extensive portfolio of sporting venues and facilities across the province,
including Yabuli, China's largest ski resort.
The HSB joint venture includes, for
the first time in a Chinese province, a Business-to-Business (B2B) online
booking system for sports. The JV agreed terms with three of China's largest
online portals to sell and promote its B2B system, based on DJI's technology,
from 1 November 2015, giving it direct access to their significant customer
The venture is in its early stages
but the bookings to date are in line with expectations and the system is now
entering its next phase of development towards a more extensive e-commerce
roll-out during 2016. Prestigious channel partners, including leading Chinese
online video company LeTV and major B2C online retailer JD.com, have been
signed and further revenue enhancing deals with high quality strategic partners
are being targeted to drive the JV's progress to profitability in the second
half of 2016.
The JV company remains committed to
seeking a listing on a New York exchange in due course and it is the intention
of both partners to continue to devote all necessary resources to growing
existing and new business activities ahead of that event.
Commenting on the expansion of DJI's
services in Heilongjiang province, Chief Executive Darren Mercer said:
"We are very pleased to be
deepening our relationship with the lottery and sports authorities in
Heilongjiang. DJI's aim is, through the HSB joint venture, to provide a
complete lottery solution for Heilongjiang, spanning content, promotion and new
media, so we are delighted to have secured additional mandates for growing
lottery revenues in this important province. Expanding our valuable database of
information on all lottery players in the province gives us a key advantage for
consumer targeting and engagement, reducing DJI's dependency on B2B sales and
enhancing our prospects for developing higher margin B2C operations.
"The JV, working closely with its
lottery centre and corporate partners, is well positioned to benefit from the
eventual return of online lottery sales. We believe that our unique combination
of technology, marketing experience, exclusive promotional content and key
relationships leaves us equipped for substantial growth in this exciting
