Lowe's is an interesting case study. The home-improvement retailer teased out a Black Friday deals reveal on Nov. 2, getting more than 2,700 real-time onlookers. Since then, the recorded version of the video has garnered 1.4 million views

"The Lottery’s impact on education in Tennessee continues to grow,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. “We are proud to partner with IGT to strengthen valuable after-school programs in various locations throughout the state. By helping provide computer labs, students have a chance to practice and expand computer literacy skills at an early age.”  “IGT is providing students with access to a powerful combination of educational resources and technology, opening doors to a vast range of opportunities and leading them toward an exciting future,” said Chris Shaban, Regional Vice President of IGT.

Camelot CEO Andy Duncan said: “Despite the challenges we’ve faced over the last six months, our performance over the half-year still represents one of our best since The National Lottery’s launch in 1994 – and returning over £2.7 billion to Good Causes and players in just six months is no small achievement.

"We want to get on that bandwagon," lottery director Gordon Medenica said at the meeting. He said other states have had success offering increasingly expensive - and potentially lucrative - instant tickets. Instant tickets are so called because players can find out immediately if they won. The highest-priced ticket now sold is $20, and the lowest is $1.

“Our partnership with Pollard Banknote has contributed to our growth in the instant ticket category over the years,” said Terry Presta, Executive Director, Kansas Lottery. “We particularly appreciate their flexible and responsive customer service and the valuable assistance they have offered in building our instant scratch portfolio. We look forward to working with the Pollard team on new initiatives that will help the Lottery drive its instant scratch sales over the next contract term.”

This week it was joined in this endeavor by the attorneys general of five states, who filed an amicus brief in support of New Jersey’s plight. AG’s from West Virginia, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi and Wisconsin contend that Third Circuit ruling usurps states’ rights by enforcing the federal ban on sports betting.
