The goal is to build the world's largest brand within online lottery games. Optimizer Invest is currently in the process of forming a new organization that will drive up the company to become a new group, based in Malta.

Petter Moldenius, CEO of Optimizer Invest, comments:

“We have a background within primarily igaming and lead generation. Lottery is actually the only vertical in the field that we hadn’t entered into yet. Now it was time. We will create a world-class interactive user experience for consumers online. We will reach a whole new target group and can capitalize on doing everything digitally and automated. MegaLotto as a brand will create echo within the gaming industry.”

MegaLotto will be built on Gaming Innovation Group's (GiG’s) platform, a collaboration that made sense from the start. Both companies are driven by creating a user experience that is entertaining, innovative and responsible.

“Optimizer Invest creates business in two ways. We invest in tech-driven companies that we believe in. The second part is to create companies based on our own business ideas. MegaLotto is an example of the latter. We see great opportunities to once again be driving up a company under our own umbrella, as we have done before with e.g. Betit Group,” concludes Moldenius.

The launch of MegaLotto takes place during 2019.
