Solicitation Type: Expression of Interest (EOI)
Solicitation Number: N/A
Solicitation Title: Gaming System Replacement
Date Issued: May 17, 2022
Deadline: 17:00 27 June 2022 (NZST)

The New Zealand Lotteries Commission (Lotto NZ) operates New Zealand’s only regulated lottery business. We exist to provide safe gaming that allows New Zealanders to play and win while contributing 100% of profits back to benefit New Zealand communities.

The games we currently offer are Lotto, Strike, Powerball, Keno, Bullseye, Instant Kiwi and Instant Kiwi online. Our games are sold through our network of over 1,400 Lotto NZ retail outlets and through our online sales channels (MyLotto.co.nz and the Lotto NZ mobile apps). Lotto NZ’s sales for the financial year ending June 2021 were NZ$1.508 billion (US$1.06 billion), enabling Lotto NZ to achieve a transfer of NZ$370.8 million (US$255.9 million) back to New Zealand communities.

The Process:

Lotto NZ is running a two-step procurement process for its Gaming System, involving:

  • the first step, being an open Expression of Interest (EOI) process that suppliers are being invited to respond to now; and
  • after evaluation of the EOI Responses, the second step of shortlisted Respondents being invited to participate in a closed Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

Lotto NZ has adopted this two-step process in order to operate the procurement in a manner that is efficient for both Lotto NZ and interested suppliers. As the Gaming System spans across the lotteries and online gaming systems markets, and the range of suppliers, functionality and services within these markets are wide-ranging:

  • the EOI allows suppliers to provide Lotto NZ information about their solutions, services, differentiators and experience
  • the EOI enables the RFP to be far more targeted as Lotto NZ will be able to confirm the scope of its procurement, including the minimum functionality, services and experience
  • the EOI step ensures the Respondents who are shortlisted for the RFP are well-qualified against the requirements (ensuring investment in the more detailed RFP is worthwhile).

This means any supplier who wants to participate in the RFP must respond to the EOI and qualify for the shortlist based on their EOI Response.

What We Are Seeking:

The Gaming System is the core of Lotto NZ’s operations and provides us with the ability to carry out our mission of providing safe gaming that allows New Zealanders to play and win, while contributing money back to New Zealand communities.

The Gaming System is made up of two core components, and we are inviting Respondents to respond to either one component, or both of the components through the EOI. The components are:

  1. a Core Gaming System; being the core system that provides our draw-based games engine and retail network.
  2. an Online Gaming System; being the online system platform that provides the digital channel, player account management, interactive functionality and online games.

Through this procurement, we are seeking a long-term engagement with a supplier (or suppliers) who can best enable us to meet Lotto’s NZ Objectives now and well into the future. The anticipated length of the engagement/contract is an initial term of seven years, with three renewal terms of four years each, representing a contract term of up to 19 years.
