"Since our initial public offering twelve months ago, we have not only delivered on the goals we set for growth but have matured to become an established leader in our space," said Richard Weil, Chairman and CEO of INNOVA. "Although the timing of some deployments originally slated for Q1 2016 shifted to Q4 2015 in response to revised customer directives, we still generated strong revenue growth of over 16% compared to Q1 2015 and continued to roll out LT-3 terminals across our network. Our solid reputation and demand for LT-3 terminals position us well to deliver on our target deployment range of 300 to 360 units over the course of 2016."

“We are excited to partner with the Missouri Lottery, because through the rigorous RFP process, it is clear they have many innovative ideas that we are excited to incorporate into their new gemIntelligence platform”, said Jean Lombard, President of Lapis Software Associates. “We understand all lottery sales operations are different, and our focus is to deliver the most robust set of features and capabilities that are customized for each lottery’s unique requirements and accessible from all devices.”

Commenting on the 1Q 2016 Results INTRALOT Group CEO Antonios Kerastaris noted: "INTRALOT's strong financial performance in 1Q16, despite strong FX headwind, confirms that our operational model evolution and the alignment of our portfolio offering with market trends generate measurable results. Our strategy for growth through local partnerships in new and existing markets is guided by expanding and diversifying our portfolio with complementary products and market share. Additionally, our unique understanding of traditional industry verticals such as lottery and betting retail as both technology provider and operator drives our new product roadmap towards a universal customer experience."

“At the end of the day, we do try to run the lottery as a business and be very effective, but we keep in mind that we have a public mission,” said Michael Sweeney, executive director of the Massachusetts State Lottery. “We drive revenue back to 351 cities and towns as unrestricted local aid. They get to decide each year how the money is going to be spent. It’s one of their largest sources of dollars.” Sweeney said a long track record and high payout rates — 72 percent of sales revenue was paid out as prizes last year — have helped make the lottery a success. Excitement surrounding recent record jackpots in the multi-state Powerball and Mega Millions games have also had an impact, he said. “Over the last three to four decades, the Massachusetts lottery has been run with a high degree of integrity, and I think the consumer knows that,” he said. “It’s a respected product, and a product I think our players know they can trust.”

Total Lottery and VLT revenue up 5.8 percent over 2014/15“On all metrics, the New York Lottery continues to be the most profitable lottery on the continent and underscores the success of New York’s smart gaming policies,” said Commission Executive Director Robert Williams. “This is great news for taxpayers and students across the state, as it provides New Yorkers a fun and exciting way to give back to their communities.”

Greg Smith, Executive Director, Vermont Lottery, said, "Through our partnership with Pollard Banknote, the Lottery has successfully introduced many new games at various price points, as well as the exciting new second chance website that launched in October 2015, and has already enhanced player engagement. We are pleased that the extension to our existing contract will allow us to continue leveraging Pollard Banknote's industry-leading product innovations and strategic recommendations." "Our newly established relationship with the Vermont Lottery has delivered immediate results due to a mutual focus on growing sales through innovation, research, analysis, and implementation of winning strategies," said Byron Peterson, Director, Sales & Marketing, Pollard Banknote.

GLI’s Director of Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development, Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes had the honor of speaking on one of the event’s discussion panels, “Taking the Legalized Debate to the Next Level: Addressing the Key Challenges in the Legalization of Games in Brazil and Highlighting the Solutions.”

“It’s still more than we’ve ever given to the state and we are coming in ahead of budget,” said Carrie Stroud, chief of staff for the Hoosier Lottery Commission. “We’re definitely pleased.”

The past few weeks have seen positive steps forward for poker. This week’s development, however, is perhaps a half-step back. The committee report for the Senate Appropriations Committee $56.3B bill for the 2017 budgets for the Department of Justice and other government agencies includes language hostile to online poker. The House Appropriations Committee will now consider their version of this funding bill. Even if the verbiage is included in the House committee report, it would not result in a ban or even in any detrimental action to poker. It could, however, help lay the groundwork for a future backdoor attempt at a federal ban via attachment to must-pass legislation at the end of this year. This backdoor attempt is not surprising, since every time Las Vegas Sands has tried to use the front door, it has been slammed in their face.
