IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Iowa Lottery and Gaming Commission is launching a $2 million project to make its state’s lottery scanning technology more accurate and reliable.

    The Iowa Lotteries’ technology has been a critical component in its successful rollout of the new Iowa State Lottery System since its launch in January.

    But the commission is asking for your help in developing a system that can be easily and securely deployed and upgraded.

    The state will pay for all of the necessary research and development costs.

    Iowa Lottery Commissioner Scott Kuchera said the project will focus on improving the system’s performance and reliability.

    He noted the state is now using a new scanning technology that can better identify suspicious items on electronic gaming machines.

    The system will be able to recognize a suspect card in the machines as soon as it scans the card, he said.

    This year, the commission spent $11 million upgrading the Iowa Lotters’ system.

    It will use a new scanner that can scan electronic game machines faster and more accurately than previous scanners.

    The Iowa State Gaming Commission will use this new technology to analyze its scanners to determine if they should be upgraded, Kuckera said.

    In order to do this, the Iowa lottery will use the technology developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Security Technology Center, which has been approved for use by the lottery to scan all electronic games.

    The agency will also provide some of its own equipment to the lottery, including a machine that will scan the games.

    Kucherae said the Iowa Gaming Commission’s scanning technology will be more accurate, with the Iowa State Department of Commerce, Iowa Department of Labor and other government agencies assisting in the development of the system.

    “The Iowa lottery is one of the best in the country at what it does, and we’ve got to make sure that our system is as good as it can be,” Kuckersaid.

    The new Iowa lottery technology will require the Iowa Department OF Commerce to provide equipment and expertise to the state, Kacherae added.

    The commission has been in the process of purchasing the new technology since last year.

    The project will begin in the spring of 2019 and the Iowa state lottery is expected to be fully operational in 2020.

    The lottery will also begin testing its new technology with other states.

    Iowa is currently the only state that uses the new system.
