Leveraging drug store ETOS in The Netherlands

Abacus is pleased to report that through the use of the Abacus Fusion Platform® its Dutch client Nederlandse Loterij (NLO) has further expanded its in-lane sales network in The Netherlands, with the addition of the Dutch Drug Store ETOS. ETOS went live in December with 548 stores and over 1000 points of sale, adding further retail expansion for NLO.


The project team handled the implementation from start to go live within three months. Abacus has now enabled nearly 25,000 in-lane points of sale selling Staatsloterij, Lotto and EuroJackpot tickets in The Netherlands.


Abacus CEO, Simon Butler, commented; “We are proud of the good cooperation with the Dutch Lottery. This is evident in the attention paid to the use of the Abacus Gateway for in-lane sales and the possibilities that existing infrastructure at points of sale offer for efficient growth. The expansion with ETOS is an example of this. In addition, together we are already exploring new commercial possibilities and additional functionalities to further expand services for retailers and players.”
