Lotto NZ has a network of around 1500 retail outlets throughout New Zealand that require a continuous supply of thermal coated printed stock of yellow paper for our iconic lotto tickets. Despite a recent marked growth in our online channel, retail sales currently account for over 60% of total sales. The balance of total sales varies according to changes to our game portfolio, and fluctuations in our jackpot amounts.
The object of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to seek a partner to execute the processing and printing of the thermal yellow paper, and the subsequent dispatch of the full order of prepacked cartons of stock to our warehouses located in Auckland and Wellington. This enables us to distribute stock to the Lotto NZ retail network within set timeframes and in accordance with set standards of quality and accuracy. We supply the product at our cost to retailers.
Lotto NZ exists to exist to provide safe gaming that allows New Zealanders to play and win while contributing money back to New Zealand communities. With 100% of our profits going to the community, via the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board, we generate funding that supports the vital work of thousands of Kiwi organisations and charities every year.
Therefore cost efficiency and the highest quality of production is paramount to us. Any errors in the printing or finishing of the product may lead to hardware malfunctions, and loss of sales. Should a production error occur, remediation and identification of faulty individual rolls can be extremely onerous. Lotto NZ is an iconic brand, with high visibility and awareness from the general public and our customers in the event of any perceived errors in our materials. It is therefore vital that we achieve 100% production accuracy and quality through this contract.
Lotto NZ tickets are produced for our draw-based games: Lotto, Strike, Powerball, Bullseye and Keno (see www.mylotto.co.nz for more information on game play). The yellow paper tickets are printed in store using terminals manufactured by International Game Technology PLC (IGT). Each retail outlet has at least one terminal and printer and associated hardware in the store.
