LOTTO Thüringen’s fresh new website reflects shifts in the industry – changes in players’ behaviour, expanded target groups and new technologies – which led to a need for modernisation. Behind the new web interface, which lottery players can visit at www.lotto-thueringen.de, lies IT service-provider adesso’s 20 years of lottery and technology expertise. In a one-and-a-half year development project, the company redesigned the portal from the ground up using the latest technology. From the creative concept, developed in a series of customer workshops, to technical execution and implementation, quality assurance and the operational go-live – adesso offered holistic support throughout the portal project and will have ongoing responsibility for maintenance. The IT service-provider was able to integrate the portal into LOTTO Thüringen’s existing central lottery system, which was essential for a coherent system environment.
