How does it work?
Lottery draw staff connect to Szrek2Solutions’ Trusted Draw(TD) and Trusted Audit (TA) systems hosted at  secure IGT corporation’s data centers in West Greenwich, RI and Austin, TX. Through a secure, remote connection, draw and audit functions are performed with a graphic user interface (GUI), ensuring the utmost security and auditability of all draws. Draw managers are able to perform draws with auditors and observers through screen sharing, according to lottery procedures. In addition, to guarantee the randomness and integrity of draw outcomes, lotteries obtain  irrefutable proof of integrity for each draw, (see proof of integrity video) which their staff verify on the Trusted Audit system.

All Trusted Draw solutions have the capability for remote draws. Over fifteen years, TD and TA have generated and verified hundreds of thousands of random numbers daily (performance-reliability-support) The Szrek RNG and audit solution has been patented (research-development) in the US and internationally, and the RNG has been certified (certifications) numerous times by several independent companies and labs .
  • Is this a secure solution?
    Yes, this remote draw solution is secure and transparent. Security is ensured at all levels – at the level of the data center, network, and draw applications.
    • TD and TA systems are replicated in two geographically separated IGT world-class data centers, meeting and exceeding WLA and ISO27001 security standards.
    • The network connection is provided through secure VPN, with restricted access to the TD and TA systems for predefined users and only through the TD and TA GUIs.
    • Draw security is not limited to physical controls and prevention; draws are secured by our patented RNG solution with 100% fault and fraud detection.
    • Draw integrity is enforced by the proof of integrity that is created by the TD system for each draw, which is independently verified on the TA system.
  • What games are supported?
    This solution supports all game types: any lotto matrices with add-ons, any numbers games, keno, bingo, 2nd chance, raffle, passive games, etc.
  • What other solutions are offered for draw continuity?
    Szrek offers connected draw systems which provide automated draws. Automated draws are generally triggered by the gaming system and the draw results are sent back from the RNG to the gaming system, without any human interaction. Integrity is assured through Szrek’s patented RNG technology, which guarantees 100% detection of any draw faults or fraud. As part of the process, the RNG integrity file (a tamperproof Signature Log) is transferred automatically from the RNG system to a separate independent audit system which verifies the integrity of the random numbers generated. An internal control system (ICS) can communicate with the audit system to reconcile the RNG outcomes between the gaming system and RNG system. Verified results are confirmed and communicated to the public, etc.
