During the 2018 World Cup in June and July, AGTech will partner with Jilin Provincial Sports Lottery Center to launch a marketing campaign to enhance the brand awareness of China Sports Lottery and raise the popularity of its sports lottery products, thereby helping to expand its customer base and increase the volume of lottery sales.

Participants also have the chance to enjoy additional exciting online benefits.

John Sun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AGTech, said: "In the first quarter of this year, we partnered with China Sports Lottery to successfully develop and launch a national innovative marketing campaign which integrated various online and offline resources to enhance users' experience across channels. The campaign transformed the traditional marketing model into a multi-faceted and highly effective campaign, playing an important role in promoting Sports Lottery's brand and attracting new users, fully demonstrating that marketing campaigns are a core part in enhancing the lottery industry. On the back of this success, we are excited to partner with Jilin Provincial Sports Lottery Center, our first such collaboration with a provincial sports lottery center, to deliver differentiated marketing in this digital age. By leveraging the enormous presence of Ant Financial's payment platform, Alipay, and various online and offline resources, we are confident that the campaign we launch together with Jilin Provincial Sports Lottery Center will help enhance the Sports Lottery's brand exposure, increase the popularity of its sports lottery products and create an innovative marketing model for the industry."

As the leader in the lottery industry, we are committed to proactively innovating and continuously improving the lottery experience.
