Howard Mitchell, Chairman of the Jamaican Lottery Company, added, ``This contract is the beginning of the deployment of a world class lottery system that will be capable of offering more products and services to an expanded retailer base. Autotote/Scientific Games was chosen because it offers innovative, leading edge technology, that provides us with the capacity to accomplish our objectives as we begin the next decade of operation under our recently renewed license.''
