EL President Friedrich Stickler: “Sport plays a significant role in our societies, and it is of utmost importance to preserve it from fraudulent behaviours. As betting operators, lotteries strongly welcome in particular the provisions to fight against illegal betting as well as the clear definition of this illegal activity. The Convention should enter into force as soon as possible: the dangers should not be minimalized and we have already lost enough time.”
“Linq3 is very excited to be recognized by retailers as the best new product of 2014. Retailers are the main avenue for lotteries to reach customers and Linq3 is proud to be a supporting partner in increasing sales for the retailer and lotteries all across the U.S.,” said Daniel Cage, Linq3’s CEO.

“We want those who choose to play the lottery to play for fun and play within their means,” said Alice Garland, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. “You should only play the lottery with money set aside for entertainment. We don’t want rent money, gas money or grocery money to be spent on the lottery. We can have a successful lottery and meet our mission of raising money for education without those kinds of sales.”

“Now is the perfect time to reflect on the beneficiaries and how the lottery is providing an opportunity to further education in the state and for these students as we are celebrating the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery’s five year anniversary,” said Woosley. “Football season is when we join our friends and family to root for our favorite teams and we couldn’t think of a better way to also cheer on our Academic Challenge Scholarship recipients and the positive change they are bringing to Arkansas.”
Managing director, Zuriñe Sáez de Viteri, says: “In a highly connected, multi-channel world, it seems surprising that many players still cannot buy lottery tickets on demand and on the move. The growth of eCommerce shows that the market for buying goods and services online and via mobile devices continues to expand, but the lottery world hasn’t typically responded to this demand.”

Thank you all for participating in Lottery EXPO.  It's been a fabulous three days.  We hope you all enjoyed it and accomplished all of your objectives.  We will be working on our Spring and Fall conference events and will keep you posted as we confirm dates, venues and programs.  Hope to see you there.  In the meantime, I'm sure we'll see you at NASPL Atlantic City in a couple weeks, and then at the World Lottery Summit in Rome in November.  Be sure to come to the PGRI Lottery Industry Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies at both of those events.  Gary Grief (Executive Director Texas Lottery and President of NASPL) and David Loeb (CEO Western Canada Lottery Corporation) will be inducted at NASPL event.  Tan Soo Nan (CEO of Singapore Pools) and Jean Jorgensen (Executive Director World Lottery Association) will be inducted at the WLS event in Rome.   Too, the winner of the Sharp Award for Good Causes will be recognized at NASPL.  This award goes to the NASPL lottery with the highest year-over-year percentage increase in net funds generated for its beneficiary.

Congratulations again to the recipients of the Rebecca Hargrove Award for Mentorship (Connie Laverty O'Connor) and the Major Peter O'Connell Lottery Industry Lifetime Achievement Award (Bret Toyne).  It was a lovely ceremony honoring two of this industry's most respected and well-liked leaders.  Their dedication is so appreciated and their contributions to the success of the industry, and to the success of so many of us on a personal level, have had momentous impact. Thank you Connie and Bret for all you do and for all you will be accomplishing in the years to come.  
 
And Thank you to our two keynote speakers, Cindy O'Connel and Gary Grief, for kicking Lottery Expo off in such great style and setting the stage for a series of thought-provoking panel discussions and presentations.  Thank you to all of the presenters, panelists and moderators as well.  And thank you especially to Cindy O'Connel and the incredible Florida Lottery team for being the most gracious and hard-working hosts anyone could hope for.  Everyone loves Florida and you just lock it in by making sure everyone is so pleased and impressed by the wonders of the Flamingo State.  We can't wait to be back next year!
