“Lottery players have long told us they’d like to see a game with more million-dollar prizes,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation and National Chairman of the game. “With three chances to win a million dollars or more, and a game design that ensures multiple million-dollar winners, MONOPOLY Millionaires’ Club has the potential to make more millionaires in one drawing than any game in U.S. lottery history. That’s great for our players and great for the education programs funded by proceeds from the Tennessee Lottery.”

Announcing the new game, Rebecca Paul Hargrove, president of the Tennessee Lottery, explained, “Lotteries across the country came together and listened to what players wanted.”

Government Lotteries and their commercial partners have become the market leaders.  Instead of responding to change as it occurs in the market-place, Team Lottery is leading the charge with innovative approaches to brand extensions, integrating multi-media strategies for new customer-acquisition and core customer relationship management, aligning game development and marketing strategies with real-world player profiles instead of old-school demographic segmentation, and converting ‘big data’ into better products delivered at the right time, in the right place, to the right consumer.  All the pieces are in place for Team Lottery to consolidate its position as the most progressive, exciting, and trusted operator in the games-of-chance industry.

Congratulations to David Gale and Team NASPL for producing the fabulous conference and trade-show event at Atlantic City!  Susan and I so enjoyed seeing you all there.  The induction of Terry Rich as President of NASPL, and Terry’s acceptance speech as inspirational “call-to-action” was one of many high-lights to the program.  The Hall of Fame ceremony for Gary Grief was another.  And the chance to visit with and learn from our colleagues is always a privilege.  Next up is the World Lottery Summit Nov. 2 to 5 in Rome.  (See http://www.wls2014.com for complete info about program, speakers, registration, etc.)  Held only every other year, the WLS is the biggest event in the lottery industry.  PGRI hosts the Global Hall of Fame ceremony at the WLS on Tuesday November 4.  Inducted into the Hall of Fame at the WLS Rome will be:

The tipping point has arrived. Regulatory changes, universal consumer adoption of digital communication technologies, and the adoption of multi-channel retailing by lottery operators are transforming the face of the industry. The convergence of social media, internet promotional strategies, and traditional advertising channels is opening up entirely new vistas for Lottery to connect with its customers.
