NeoGames CEO Ilan Rosen said, “Our emphasis at WLS this year – Pamper Your Players – highlights how an in-depth understanding of players enables lotteries to cater to player needs and wants. Meeting player expectations is key to enhancing customer satisfaction and increasing business results.” “For most lotteries, retail and iLottery are two separate worlds that are managed differently. In one, the player is anonymous; in the other, well known. With NeoGames, the lottery dissolves the barriers between channels, supercharging the player experience and generating new revenues.”

Lotto sales could top a billion dollars for the first time in this financial year. If they do, it will be the result of growth strategies Lotto has adopted, as well as a bit of luck. "It's an awfully big number, and one we are fast approaching, and quite possibly in this financial year," Lotto chief executive Wayne Pickup said.

“The moment they hear the carolers sing, many Pennsylvanians reflexively smile, sing along and mentally count the weeks until they can put up the tree,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “We are proud that our popular commercial brings back so many warm memories for viewers and has become a Keystone State holiday tradition.” PA Lottery’s Beloved ‘Snowfall’ Commercial Returns for 25th Season

"Players love this limited-time Raffle promotion because it offers the best odds to become Florida's next millionaire," said Florida Lottery Secretary Tom Delacenserie. "Seven $1 million prizes will be awarded in this year's Grand Prize Drawing; and those who buy early will have even more chances to win."

Mr. Antonios Kerastaris, INTRALOT Group CEO, stated: “We are delighted to meet customers and friends from all over the world at our industry’s leading global event and exchange our insights regarding the future of the playing experience. INTRALOT remains at the forefront of lottery solutions, thus our R&D strategy focuses on developing products that help our lottery customers meet modern challenges by means of novel retail solutions and thrive through sustainable and responsible growth. Our team looks forward to meeting lottery professionals and presenting our best-of-breed solutions towards the evolution of the lottery industry.”

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.
