The Group primarily supplies to Sports Lottery and has hardware deployed in multiple provinces, cities, municipalities and autonomous regions across China. The Group is one of the leading suppliers in China of lottery terminals. The Group continues to focus on research and development in order to broaden and improve its product spectrum and develop new hardware ranges.
During 2021, the Group won twenty-seven lottery hardware tenders to supply lottery terminals to the Sports Lottery Administration Centres in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Fujian province, Jiangsu province, Hubei province, Sichuan province, Shandong province, Henan province, Hebei province, Zhejiang province, Jilin province, Hunan province, Shanxi province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Guangdong province, Gansu province, Shanghai Municipality and Tianjin Municipality of the PRC. These successful tenders further strengthened the Group’s top-tier position in China’s lottery hardware market and demonstrated the continued competitiveness of the Group’s lottery terminals. The Group will continue to pursue tenders to supply to the lottery and other hardware markets.
In addition to lottery hardware supplies, expansion to other consumer sectors has been a focus for the Group. With a view to broadening product spectrum of its hardware business utilizing the research and development capability of the Group and in view of the fact that many of the hardware supplies for the retail market share similar technology and components underlying the lottery hardware products supplied by the Group throughout many years, the Group has extended its hardware product offering to smart hardware in the retail sector. During 2021, the Group commenced the supply of non-lottery hardware (such as POS terminals) for use in the PRC retail sector.
