Tatts a step closer to vending machine sales

The email sent Friday by tatts announcing a limited location trial whereby customers will be able to purchase tickets on a self-serve screen and pick up from a terminal is, in my opinion, the next step to complete self service in-store, in multiple locations not part of the network today.

Self service is the model for lotteries in many overseas countries so why not Australia? However, self serve overseas is real self serve and not this clunky approach by Tatts.

The┬ámain game for lottery sales in town is online. That will eventually dominate lottery purchases in my view. Technology demands it. Consumer convenience demands it. While there are fights about shoplifts and Tatts dedicates space, online is where the biggest battle is taking place and you can’t see it in-store.
