The Lottery field marketing staff has resumed full operations and making regular retailer visits to each retail Lottery location. Retailers can continue to contact their representative via phone or email with any questions if needed. Tel Sel operations continued throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and our Tel Sel staff and ticket orders will continue to be delivered the next business day.

Cleaning and disinfecting lottery terminals:

isopropyl alcohol (70% solution) is effective and acceptable to use on all terminal touchscreens and cabinets. This is the only product that is approved for use on terminals.


Important considerations before cleaning / disinfecting equipment

  1. Power the terminal down.
  2. Always wear gloves when working with cleaning solutions and disinfectants.
  3. Select only non-abrasive cleaning cloths to avoid scratching touchscreens.
  4. Do not get liquids inside the unit. If liquids get inside the unit, have a qualified technician determine whether it is safe to power the unit back on.
  5. Avoid highly concentrated (70%+) alcohol, bleach or ammonia solutions, as these may cause discoloration.

If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned prior to disinfection.
