Romanian Lottery: truth and challenge! “I wish we had an independent lottery system”

Marius Pantea

Interview with PhD Marius Pantea – General Manager, Romanian Lottery

Being the leader of the National Company of Romanian Lottery for only a few months, Mr. Marius Pantea is planning daring projects that will turn this institution into a top state company, as in most of the countries of European Union. We invite you to read an interesting article, which will acquaint you with the present and future of the Romanian Lottery.

Do you actually see yourself as a lucky person? Has Marius Pantea won the lottery or has the Lottery won a good manager?

Yes, I am a lucky person, I have a little girl who is almost 2, a wonderful wife, and a mother who idolizes me, along with two extraordinary sisters, in other words, I have an enviable family, and life has offered me a second opportunity.

Related to the second part of your question, I have never won the lottery, and I hope from all my heart that the Romanian Lottery would have won for a long period of time a manager who is willing and capable of doing great things and who will actually do these things!

What has determined you to agree to lead one of the oldest institutions in Romania?

It is a challenge for me to try to bring the Romanian Lottery to the value and performance it had in the past. I wish that the Lottery would actively get involved in the city life, in order to render fellow citizens wealth, self-help during difficult times, to offer children an opportunity, to give our elders a helping hand, and to be what it needs to be, meaning an entertaining state company, especially created to operate a monopole on an ancient activity: gambling.

Certainly, during the three past months, since you have been the manager of the Romanian Lottery, you have learnt exactly how things go. Tell us how would an ordinary working day look for the General Manager of the Romanian Lottery?

My working day is not much different from that of a man responsible of over 2.500 colleagues. The objectives I have set are daring, the implementation deadlines are short, but the results need to be visible as soon as possible, therefore the rhythm is alert and it forces me to identify innovative, daring solutions every day, together with the management of the Company and with every single colleague. I am glad that this year we’ve managed to offer significantly higher wages to all Romanian Lottery workers. Figures say that the ordinary sales agent was at first paid with the minimum wage, which at the beginning of the year was of 1.200 lei and then it was increased to 1.700 lei, to which meal vouchers were added worth 300 lei/month, a holiday voucher of 1.450 lei/year and other benefits. My colleagues from TESA have also been granted important wage increments, 450 lei/month on average, considering that, in my opinion, their wages have not been increased for years.

What are the Company’s priorities, in your opinion?

The priorities of the Romanian Lottery, on a short and medium term, are:

-          independency from the point of view of the lottery system (it is set that, by the end of the year, we shall implement the new lottery system and therefore change the current 24 year old system);

-          introduction of new gambling games (a first step will be represented by the new game 100.000 lei Ball);

-          the opportunity of acquiring lottery tickets via modern media (mobile phones, tablets, computers);

-          opening the remote lottery gambling site, within the shortest time;

-          restoration of the spaces where the National Company Romanian Lottery (NCRL) runs its activity;

-          affiliation of new partners in a mandate system (we have already a new partnership with Stanleybet);

-          introduction of new types of lottery tickets with attractive prizes.

It is known that you are experienced in the gambling field thanks to the position you occupied at ONJN. How does, from your new position, look the status of the Romanian Lottery on the gambling market?

The Romanian Lottery was, is and will be the most important national gambling operator. In order to also become the most attractive gambling organizer, NCRL needs to urgently transform, to become an honest partner, to offer transparency, and to be predictable. In order to succeed, we must get help from our main shareholder, the Ministry of Public Finance, which should propose several legal changes, absolutely necessary for the operation of the Company’s activity under good conditions.

Do you think that the social role of the Romanian Lottery, especially the reason for which it had been founded 111 years ago, sufficiently reflects on the Romanian society?

There is always room for better. For this, we must say that we have already got actively involved in supporting the efforts of normalization of our fellow citizens’ lives. We have initiated the lottery ticket „(i)Vacation”, and it is already on the market, issued in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism; soon it will be available a lottery ticket series called „The Farmer” issued in support with the Ministry of Agriculture, which has as a main objective the support of the Romanian farmers. We have initiated discussions in support of cancer ill children , and in this purpose we are going to act together with the National Health Insurance Fund (many thanks to the President Marian Burcea!) to identify some substantive and legal ways of help. We shall actively get involved in supporting sports – in partnership with the Nadia Comăneci Foundation, and education – by supporting children growing in disadvantaged environments. Also, it must be said that the Romanian Lottery supports the Romanian culture with approximatively 4 million Euros per year. As you can see, NCRL actively gets involved in the community’s social-cultural life!!!

What are, in your opinion, the gamblers’ expectations , and how would you meet them? In other words, what are Marius Pantea’ ambitions?

I wish to quickly implement the remote (online) gambling, the sports bets, I wish to give people the possibility to submit lottery tickets from their mobile phones, tablets or from their computers; I wish to also offer them the opportunity of participating at new games organized by the Romanian Lottery, or at games organized by European lotteries , which we are going to conclude partnerships with. I am absolutely sure that, through these objectives, we will be able to meet all the expectations of our gamblers.

I wish that the institution I am managing would become independent from the lottery system operation point of view, I wish we would develop partnerships mutually attractive, we would offer gamblers important prizes, we would be transparent and we would get the Romanian Lottery back where it belongs!

The casino backbone system

As of the last decade the gaming industry constantly acquires new dimensions and the traditional land based gaming is widening its approach by embracing the advances of technology. The players` needs are changing and the operators are altering the scope to make the process even more convenient and engaging less efforts.

Building a synergy of brick and mortar and online delivery is highly demanded of operators and customers nowadays. With that mindset, Casino Technology created and successfully deployed the patented concept – THE BIG 5TMthat is a suite of 5 systems for seamless delivery of gaming content and casino managing system.

The backbone of the suite is the Casino Management System RhinoTM. By saving time and boosting the communication with clients, the CMS strengthens the connection and the loyalty to the operators brand. The utmost result is keeping the players satisfied and accelerating profitability. Enabling the real-time decision making on casino floor, the Casino Management System simplifies the dynamic environment into easy interpretable data. For even more convenience, the RhinoTM is build on a modular principle as each module consists all needed detailed reports at a glance.

Just recently a brand new module was implemented in the RhinoTM system. Evoked by customers demands, the TITO functionality was complemented, specifically targeting the operators, preferring the use of tickets. The TITO Module in RhinoTM provides cash-able and promotional tickets and decreases hand pays to a minimum. This is the most commonly used cashless technology today as the cashless gaming is evolving and the market become more familiar with alternative approaches to transacting money.

KAJOT CONTINUES HIS EXPANSION IN ROMANIA. NOW AND ON THE ONLINE GAMBLING.

KAJOT GAMES

KAJOT is a dynamic, growing company. The proof of this is that the Czech firm is ready to offer its customers and games in the online environment, too. In this Cover Story we present the latest nouvelties that they will introduce on the Romanian market both in the landbased area and in the online gambling zone.

Hello Jan, we haven´t heard from you for some time, tell us please, what is new within the KAJOT?

Hello, there has been a lot going on recently. As usual, the gaming year normally start at the London exhibition, which was for us a big challenge. We have introduced three entirely new cabinets the NEO, which are currently being certified for the Romanian market and will be ready for the exhibition in Bucharest in September 2017.

There is a lot going on for us in many countries around the world starting with Asia, Afrika and in Europe. Colleague of mine Mr. Klepacek will talk more about the latest  new comings, which we will also introduce in the Romania.

I will mainly mention what our clients and potential new clients can look forward to; and this is a completely new the AWP platform that will be introduced in Bucharest, and two new regular slot platforms, that also will be introduced in Bucharest. For those who did not have a chance to see our products in London, are more than welcome to explore more our latest products at the RomExpo in September. We will be there with all the new comings to answer all your questions.

The KAJOT company has been operating on the Romanian market with gaming machines for quite some time. Now they’re preparing another expansion with a new product under the brand of KAJOT GAMES which are games for online casinos. Can you tell me more about the product?

We’ve been working on the HTML5 games project for online casinos for a long time and consider it as one of our top priorities. Our goal is to prepare a product of the same quality as in the case of our gaming machines for the land base segment. Online games for the Romanian market should be based on the achievements in Romanian casinos. We’ve picked the most successful games and reprogrammed them into the most modern programming language for online gaming – HTML5. We’ve also added several updates that appeared in our casinos at the same time. Therefore, Romanian gamers can be looking forward to a selection of our TOP games.

What criteria do your games have to meet?

Our games have to meet all the safety and legislative criteria of the given market. We are sure of the quality of our games, that’s why our certification takes place at the world’s best testing rooms. Our random number generator was tested at the world’s leading testing room, the GLI laboratory. The games are tested in accordance with the international standards at the BMM testing room. When it comes to the quality of the games, our principle is to launch only verified games with the perspective of high playability. It’s not necessary for a game that is successful in the landbase to be also successful in an online casino. We are aware of those differences and that’s why we put so much effort into the game selection for online casinos.

How many games do you currently offer?

At the moment, our partners have been delivered 15 online games, of course in HTML5. However, we have more games prepared, some of them are going to be introduced during this autumn and others at ICE 2018, where you are naturally invited to visit our stand. Our development team is working very thoroughly and therefore, I’m looking forward to present the innovations to our partners.

How are your games different from the other ones on the market?

First of all, our product is verified by plenty of years in casinos of the whole world. We’ve prepared the best games in HTML5 and every new one is ready for both our cabinets and online casinos. Further off, we follow the “mobile first” strategy which means great playability on mobile devices. We’ve worked a lot on the ergonomy of controlling which gives us a significant advantage over our competitors, even when it comes to other areas. Our games are distinguished by high catchiness, great mathematics, graphics, as well as sound. Interesting bonuses for players are not missing either.

What are you plans for the future?

We will continue to work on the development of other game content for our partners, follow new trends, add new functions and game features that’ll be interesting for the players. We operate in a dynamical environment that is constantly evolving. That’s why we can’t “lie back on laurels”, but rather continue working at the same pace.

KAJOT is also entering several other markets, so I hope in another expansion and popularity of our products throughout the whole world.

How do you picture the future of online games and online business in your industry as a whole?

Online gaming is experiencing a huge boom and we expect it to be the same in the upcoming years as well. The market share of online gaming is growing every year and I expect further expansion to regions all over the world. A lot of players will be moving from regular casinos to online casinos and I can’t ignore the upcoming generation of customers that has grown in the online environment and seeks online solutions for practically everything, including fun.
