Archer Project - Semi-robotic platform enabling online participation in offline lotteries

Semi-robotic platform for online participation in offline lotteries

Challenge

By Israel law, lotto player needs to have an actual hard copy of the ticket, while all online participation in lotto is prohibited. And LottoSend wanted to develop a website and a mobile app as a workaround that would allow for online participation in Israel lotto games.
The idea was to have a back-office to buy actual tickets per clients' requests using lotto kiosks. Then back-office operators would scan the ticket they bought and attach to the user cabinet. Therefore, LottoSend needed very specific printing/scanning equipment and a website with a powerful admin component allowing to set commissions, manage tickets, create complex reports, manage payments, etc.
Archer has become the technology partner in the project undertaking the development of special apps integrated with both the equipment and the website.
