Terminals march across the country

true, to date, not very many Stoloto lottery machines have been sold - about 60 pieces. They are already present in Kaliningrad, Tambov, Rostov-on-Don (and in Bataisk), in Bugulma, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, Blagoveshchensk, Irkutsk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and in. Artem. Interesting, that the most distant regions were among the first buyers.

Anyone can buy terminals, any restrictions, for example - exclusive rights to the region, not supposed. However, the market of legal lottery terminals can be called completely free so far, as the practice of Western countries shows, they can stand in almost every store.

Moscow has both its own Stoloto terminals, and partners' terminals. Published data on the structure of demand (what types of tickets are sold through the terminal more, which less) no, however known, that in the regions immediately after the installation of the lottery machine, instant lottery tickets are sold the most. However, they are several times cheaper than production, and also almost not represented in regular retail, only in specialized points of sale.

Lottery Terminal Advertising Screen, advertising of instant lotteries is shown

Over the past few years, Stoloto has been actively promoting its lotteries, including with the help of federal advertising companies

In 2019, instant lotteries were also advertised for the first time, with the sale of which things are not important: eg, in 2018 year, the share of instant messages was less than 5% in total. Moreover, in many countries, it is instant lotteries that are sold the most.

true, there is an assumption, that Stoloto will choose a completely different path to increase instant sales.

The ticket to the future

The first lottery terminal "Stoloto" appeared in 2017, it was installed in the Moscow shopping center "Gorod". IN 2018, at the "Week of Russian Retail" was presented an already modified version, от производителя «Sensis».

The difference in the configuration of the models is small. The cheapest option lacks an advertising topper, no cashless payment, less screen and number of dispensers for loading tickets.

Characteristics and equipment of terminals

All three models accept cash, also they can all give out winnings (to 5000 rubles). Other characteristics:

  • Terminal body - 2mm steel
  • 2 scanner: two-dimensional - to check the win, lingering - to capture a ticket
  • Bill acceptor with cassette on 1000 banknotes of all denominations and a device for changing / winning (banknote recycling)
  • Device for accepting coins and issuing change / winnings in all denominations (recycling of coins)
  • Cashless payment: terminal with NFC contactless cards, contact card reader
  • Front-facing security camera for age determination
  • KKT "Treasurer FA"

The lottery terminal requires only electricity and internet, in this case, the installation is assumed only in closed rooms.

An interesting point related to age determination. By law, you can buy lottery tickets from 18 years. When buying e-tickets, a confirmation of age is displayed on the screen, which is the basis for authorizing the purchase. When selling instant lotteries, a video camera is used, by which age is automatically determined. If in doubt, that an adult buys a ticket, then a failure is displayed with a warning.

Terms of cooperation

Terminals can only be purchased, rent is not provided. Service warranty period - 1 year. An important point, both before and after the expiration of the warranty period, Stoloto has the ability to control the terminal remotely, so that the owner does not have the opportunity to sell their tickets or somehow interfere with the drawing process.

After purchasing the terminal, there is no need to spend money on the purchase of lottery tickets, work takes place on terms of sale. At the same time, there are lottery tickets, according to the terms of registration, can be divided into three groups:

  • Electronic. The receipt is formed at the time of sale for the next (or selected edition)
  • Instant (paper). They need to be downloaded once a week., or more often, as sold. At the same time, instant lotteries do not have a strict deadline., they are sold as long as the lottery permit is valid (to 2029 of the year)
  • Circulation (paper) - "Russian Lotto" and "Housing Lottery". In this case, tickets are tied to certain circulations. (held once a week), therefore tickets that have not been sold out are seized and disposed of

The terminal owner receives a commission for the sale of lottery tickets, it also depends on the type of lottery:

  • Instant (paper) - commission 20%
  • All circulation except Rapido and Gosloto "4 out of 20" - 16%
  • Rapido and Gosloto «4 of 20» - 12%

Its useful to note, that the conditions are quite attractive. The terminal owner does not need to invest in goods, he earns exclusively on the back. From expenses - rent of space for a lottery machine and maintenance (Stoloto rates them in 10 000 monthly based on salary of one engineer, maintaining in working order 5 terminals)
