Our Story

When we began our journey, the initial goal of The Froelich Group was to provide lotteries with a better way to track the sale of instant tickets. Today, we are working with the world’s best software and hardware engineers to develop a system that transforms the way instant tickets are managed.

The Froelich Group has a solid commitment to scratch-off tickets. We believe with over sixty years of history and decades as the best-selling lottery product, instant tickets are the cornerstone of the industry and will continue to be the most popular lottery game for years to come.

From selecting a ticket to scratching the latex coating, the tactile and emotional process of playing instant ticket games is unique, undeniable and impossible to replicate. With The Froelich Group’s patented LottBox system, lotteries can open a new sales channel that makes it easier for players to buy and cash-in instant tickets.

At the heart of the LottBox system, the company’s intellectual property allows it a unique opportunity to offer services that satisfy an unmet demand. With LottBox, lotteries can finally sell real instant tickets in every checkout lane and pay out winning tickets in a more secure, touchless environment.

Ultimately, we take comfort in the fact that with the sale of every ticket, the schools, capital projects and other lottery beneficiaries will continue to have the funding they need.
