Pointing to stagnant scratch ticket sales as more bettors wager on daily fantasy sports and other online games, Lottery officials have been seeking legislative authorization to offer their products on the internet. Efforts fell short this session, but Treasurer Deborah Goldberg plans to file and champion legislation next session to allow the Lottery to offer its products online and on smartphone apps.

Among those in attendance for Monday's special commission meeting were: Massachusetts Lottery Executive Director Michael Sweeney, Gaming Commission member Enrique Zuniga, Retailers Association of Massachusetts President Jon Hurst, a representative from Penn National Gaming, and a handful of lobbyists.

Simon Bucknall, COO of IWG, commented: "We have been working with NMi on a number of new projects to extend our substantial range of over 250 games, which are performing consistently at the highest level. Our focus is on delivering end-to-end solutions, so we knew we needed an experienced lab that could keep up with our game development roadmap and developing systems portfolio.

“IGT and the Georgia Lottery have had a long and successful partnership for more than 20 years, and this contract extension is a testament to the mutual cooperation and commitment of the two organizations to increase lottery sales and continue generating record profits for education through the deployment of industry-leading solutions,” said Jay Gendron, IGT Senior Vice President, WLA North America Lottery.

Bob Parente, Scientific Games' Chief Revenue Officer – Gaming, said, "We appreciate Sun International's expansion of our technology partnership and their recognition of our experienced team and industry-leading innovative games, systems and table solutions to drive player engagement and operational efficiencies at their beautiful new casino resort venture in Pretoria."

In the coming months the Lottery will be procuring a gaming system and instant printing vendor. The Lottery is looking to obtain advisory services to assist the Lottery in identifying the requirements and specifications for the procurement, as well as to develop, provide technical writing, and provide technical expertise for the procurement. The Lottery is seeking a qualified vendor with a proven track record of professional experience working with lottery industry procurements.
