KINGSTON, JAMAICA: Mahoe Gaming is poised to introduce a suite of new competitive lottery products having recently been awarded a lottery licence from the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC).
“We are delighted to offer new and exciting options to players, support social enhancement programmes, generate employment and provide revenue to the Government with our products,” explained Mahoe Chairwoman Michelle Myers Mayne. “We believe it is time to bring new choice to the players through competition and the introduction of new technologies and will endeavour to complete all required due diligence with the BGLC.”
The company brings a collaboration of both strong Jamaican industry leaders along with extensive lottery industry experience to the business.
Mahoe’s board includes Chairwoman Michelle Myers Mayne of Restaurants of Jamaica, Director Paul Scott of the Musson Group who each bring extensive understanding and experience in retail distribution, Director Lise-Anne Hoo Harris who began her career in finance at NCB and is now an entrepreneur operating bakeries.
CEO Christopher Caldwell is the former IGT Senior Vice President of Latin America & Caribbean. In that role he provided lottery technology and consulting services to SVL and lotteries around the world with more than 25 years of gaming experience.
She added: “We sought a world-rated provider of lottery technology to allow us to maximise enjoyment and improve the experience for the Jamaican consumer. Mahoe will offer consumers a proven system from Genlot, the number one partner in the gaming industry in China.” The long-anticipated introduction of a fresh lottery is expected to generate scores of new jobs across the island.
