Loto-Québec has selected New Brunswick-based Nanoptix to provide its PayCheck NextGen printer for all gaming establishments in the province. With the deal, the Nanoptix devices will serve as the exclusive ticket-in ticket-out (TITO) printers in all the properties.

In a statement, Stephane Fraser, executive vice president and chief operating officer of gaming establishments at Loto-Québec, said: “We are impressed by the quality and features of the Nanoptix PayCheck NextGen printer.”

Nanoptix is a global provider of thermal printers and technologies for companies in the gaming, lottery, kiosk, POS, and amusement industries.

The company was founded in 1996, is based in Dieppe, New Brunswick, and has customers on six continents.

“The PayCheck NextGen is the most innovative and reliable printer of its kind and has been designed with many industry-leading capabilities. We have designed the PayCheck NextGen printer to ensure a quicker print speed and to provide our customers with additional features and benefits, such as a built-in computer, multiple connectivity ports, anti-spilling channels, and the ability to hold more tickets,” said Daniel Vienneau, president and CEO of Nanoptix.

In a December statement, Loto-Québec, reporting on financial results for the first half of the 2023-24 fiscal year (ending Sept. 25, 2023), said that gaming establishments generated $441.2 million in revenue.
