“I am tremendously proud of this accomplishment by the Kansas Lottery Team and our great network of Lottery Retailers,” said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Terry Presta. “We also want to say a big ‘thank you’ to our players, who are enjoying more fun and excitement playing lottery games.” “We were able to increase our original transfer goal because of the record $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot and accompanying record Kansas Powerball sales last January,” said Presta. “That additional revenue, combined with continued growth in instant ticket sales, proved to be a winning combination for the Kansas Lottery this year.”

“This new look for the lottery has a punch to it,” said Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich. “It’s energetic and forward looking, but maintains themes that have been at the lottery’s core since it began in 1985.” “The shooting star has always been central to our lottery,” Rich said. “It’s a symbol of luck but represents celebration, too. We also view it as aspirational in terms of the vital difference lottery proceeds have made in our state.”   “We’ve had a lot of fun through the years celebrating with our winners and making a difference for Iowa,” Rich said. “This new logo and catch phrase set the course for even more success in the years to come.

It will be the second consecutive year Lotterywest is set to break records after raising a record $283 million for the WA community in the previous financial year of 2014/15. Lotterywest CEO Paul Andrew said it was thanks to WA Lotto players and their support in purchasing Lotterywest Games that these key milestones could be achieved. “WA is unique; we’re the only State where the money raised from lottery products is distributed directly back to the community by way of both direct grants to not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities, and through our support for the State’s hospitals, sporting and arts and cultural organisations. Through this, the lives of all Western Australians are enhanced,” he said.

Sharing the same values of quality, technology and performance made Safran a perfect fit.”

"We have made tremendous progress to date since announcing our Profit Growth Plan less than one year ago," said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts.

More than 30 law enforcement leaders from across the country gathered  at the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) first-ever Law Enforcement Summit. “The illegal sports betting market is a growing problem and no group is more credible in carrying that message and identifying a solution than members of law enforcement,”said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the AGA. “This Summit highlighted that the illegal sports betting market funds large criminal enterprises and fails to protect the integrity of the sports we all love. It’s time for a modernized approach that will support law enforcement around the country.”

“The focus of this conference, Renaissance of Retail in Digital Times, provided an opportunity for experts from all over Europe to address the pressing issue of lottery sustainability in the retail market,” said Frank Cecchini, NLS CEO. “Mr. Dahmen spoke of the power and inevitability of disruptive market development; markets change and negative disruption comes to those stakeholders who do not anticipate and embrace the power of change. Embracing, and actually advocating, for change is the essence of the corporate culture at NLS and that was clearly demonstrated during the Industry Days conference.”

The Western Regional OTB is the only OTB corporation in the state that owns and operates a casino, located in Batavia. It has taken a different stance than the state’s other casino operators, which have sought to restrict daily fantasy licenses to in-state casinos instead of big fantasy sports companies like FanDuel and Boston-based DraftKings. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman last year stopped those two firms from operating in New York, saying they are illegal “games of chance.” The fantasy sports firms maintain their activities are legal games of skill. The litigation between the attorney and companies is on hold while state lawmakers consider whether to make the contests legal. Senate and Assembly lawmakers say there is now a deal to this effect, and legislation could pass as soon as Friday morning. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has not taken a stand on the legislation, but lawmakers insist he has agreed.

Sally Cowdry, Consumer & Retail Director at Camelot, said: “No one contributes more to our elite Olympic and Paralympic athletes than National Lottery players. Every time our players buy a National Lottery ticket they are helping support the over 1,300 athletes as they prepare for Rio 2016 and beyond. We are delighted to have created this unique partnership with ITV, to celebrate National Lottery players’ vital contribution to our athletes’ success, so that they can be proud to say ‘I Am Team GB’ too.”
