Our story

TQG Lottery Solutions GmbH was founded to address a growing problem: how to provide flexible, reliable and affordable lottery technology to more than one customer at a time, and at any time. Our purpose is to give our customers everything they need to run their lottery business, using one configurable product: the TQG-LotterySuite (TLS). As the solution grows, every improvement which we make available to each customer in a configurable way, and each customer decides what he wants to use of it. This simple formula has enabled us to supply technology and expertise to lotteries around the world.

For many years the lottery technology market has been dominated by a handful of big players, which restricts innovation and gives lotteries little choice. Since 2012 we’ve been working steadily to match the technical capabilities of our competitors while growing sustainably as a business. We don’t over-invest or take on new customers at any price. We don’t work on projects we can’t deliver. We like making our customers happy and believe that developing a configurable product for all lotteries, and which fulfils their needs 100%, is the best way to deliver high quality to the lottery sector.
