Newly-installed general manager of GTECH Corporation Roger Bolai hopes to convince the Government to allow GTECH client National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) to increase the number of daily Play Whe draws.
GTECH has been providing gaming systems technology to the NLCB for the past 18 years, and Bolai believes an additional game will generate increased revenue and help curb the practice of illegal gambling.
"In terms of the third draw, I really think it will be an opportunity for us ...by growing the business, we are also increasing our contributions to the Government," he said.
Bolai was speaking yesterday at a news conference held to announce his appointment at The Carlton Savannah hotel in Cascade.
He said, "If we can vacuum a lot of the illegal elements out of the gaming, we can increase our revenue, and there will be more revenue for the consolidated fund, and we will be able to put a hold on the bad things that go around with illegal gambling, like money laundering ..."
A statement from the company yesterday said Bolai has had 30 years' experience managing and developing a range of businesses.
