Mahoe Gaming is poised to introduce a suite of new competitive lottery products having recently been awarded a lottery licence from the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC). 

“We are delighted to offer new and exciting options to players, support social enhancement programmes, generate employment and provide revenue to the government with our products,” explained chairwoman of Mahoe Gaming, Michelle Myers Mayne.

“We believe it is time to bring new choice to the players through competition and the introduction of new technologies and will endeavour to complete all required due diligence with the BGLC," she said. 

The company said it brings a collaboration of both strong Jamaican industry leaders along with extensive lottery industry experience to the market.

Mahoe’s board includes Myers Mayne of Restaurants of Jamaica, Director Paul Scott of the Musson Group, who each bring extensive understanding and experience in retail distribution in addition to Lise-Anne Hoo Harris, who began her career in finance at NCB and is now an entrepreneur operating bakeries.

CEO Christopher Caldwell is the former IGT Senior Vice President of Latin America and the Caribbean. In that role he provided lottery technology and consulting services to SVL and lotteries around the world with more than 25 years of gaming experience, Mahoe Gaming said in a press release. 

“We sought a world-rated provider of lottery technology to allow us to maximise enjoyment and improve the experience for the Jamaican consumer. Mahoe will offer consumers a proven system from Genlot, the number one partner in the gaming industry in China," Myers Mayne added.

The new company is expected to generate scores of new jobs across the island.
