 SYMBOL TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES CONTRACT WITH CALIFORNIA LOTTERY
 BOHEMIA, N.Y., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies Inc. (NYSE: SBL), the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems, today announced that it will supply laser scanners to the California Lottery to read and validate barcoded Scratcher tickets sold by Lottery retailers throughout the state.
 The Symbol LS 2930, a fixed-mount scanner with integrated RS232 interface, will connect to online Lottery terminals at 10,000 individual Lottery retailers throughout California and will verify the bar code of winning tickets with the California Lottery's host computer. Each Scratcher ticket carries an individual identifying serial number and corresponding bar code.
 Scanning of winning Scratcher tickets prevents fraudulent claims that can occur if someone attempts to cash a ticket more than once or to falsify play symbols on a ticket.
 "Winning the California Lottery contract is a significant step for Symbol, which recently was awarded a similar contract by the Western Canada Lottery," said Sal Cali, vice president, symbology products and services, Symbol Technologies.
 The Symbol LS 2930 design is especially suited to lottery applications because of its aggressive scanning capabilities, compact size and low cost.
 Symbol Technologies is the world leader in bar code-based data capture systems with nearly two million scanners and terminals installed. The company designs, manufactures and markets bar code reading equipment, portable data terminals and radio frequency data communications products which are used as strategic building blocks in technology systems for retailing, package and parcel delivery, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, health care and other industries.
