Lottery Conversion: Realizing Best in Class from Major Industry
Article by: Gregg Edgar,
ARIZONA (September 2016)
On my first day as the Executive
Director of the Arizona Lottery this past March, I learned our agency would
undergo a full system conversion in August. Facing such a large
undertaking in my first five months, I will admit I was a little apprehensive
about what I had stepped into. Luckily, Arizona Lottery had the right team in
place to successfully accomplish this immense task.
Over the course of the past year,
the Arizona Lottery conversion team has worked closely with Scientific Games
and IGT to develop a seamless exchange of retail terminal technology
capabilities. While many state lotteries have gone through this
technology transfer challenge, the unique aspect of Arizonas conversion
is that both companies remained in our market, managing the heart of our
business operations with redefined roles: IGT remains as our system of
record for instant games, while Scientific Games has taken over our draw game
Edgar, Executive Director, Arizona Lottery
The marriage of the two systems
creates the need for a unique information pass-through capability from
Scientific Games Wave and Flair terminals to IGTs backend instant
system in order to manage and validate instant tickets. When our IGT
Gemini Ultra vending machines begin rolling into market in January, this
pass-through capability will allow IGT to sell and validate draw game tickets
through Scientific Games system. Its a unique configuration that
maps to our business environment.
Our migration to the new retailer
terminals was a huge success. Since our August 28 go live on Scientific
Games draw game system, our draw game functionality has delivered
extremely well with customers and retail partners enjoying the benefits of the
new technology. The overall speed of service and ease of use for draw
games has improved tremendously.
Any project of this magnitude has
challenges. On the instant game side we have had our share of problems with the
pass-through. All three entities have worked brilliantly together to respond to
the issue. IGT has developed a fix within their system that we are hopeful will
remedy this problem moving forward.
Since the beginning of the fiscal
year, our draw game sales have increased more than 38 percent. During the
first week of conversion, our draw game sales were 6 percent higher when
compared to the same week last year. With the launch of our September instant
games, we are seeing more than an 8 percent increase in orders from the prior
year that same week. I am proud of this sales performance and it sets the
course for Arizona Lottery growing net revenues for our important beneficiary
Just two weeks into our conversion,
I am happy to say that for the vast majority of our retail partners and
customers alike, the transfer has gone exceedingly well and been transparent.
As we progress into the next phase and continue to realize the benefits of the
new system, the Arizona Lottery will develop a post-conversion report to
communicate with the industry in the spirit of shared knowledge. Our vision is
to document what we have learned for the benefit of other lotteries that may be
undergoing a technology conversion in the near future. Together as an industry,
we will learn and grow.

Requires Proportionality Test on Secondary Legislation for EU Gambling
BRUSSELS, Belgium (September 8,
2016) -- Today, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled on the
case Politano (C-225/15), concerning Italian secondary legislation that
excludes operators from tender proceedings if they failed to provide a
declaration from two different banks proving their financial capacity. The CJEU
judgment follows the Advocate General's opinion that the proportionality test
is required to determine the necessity and consistency also of requirements
established by national secondary legislation on the award of gambling licences
to EU-based operators.
The CJEU reiterated that Member
States have to ensure that measures defining the award of licences are in
compliance with the fundamental freedoms of EU law to guarantee access to and
exercise of operators' economic activities in the EU under proportionate and
It is now for the Italian national
court to verify if the requirements at question, given all the circumstances of
the case, are suitable and necessary to achieve the aim of the Italian
secondary legislation by reasons of overriding public interest, according to
the CJEU's proportionality test.
The CJEU ruled that:
- It is "necessary to determine whether the
restriction at issue in the main proceedings is suitable for ensuring the
attainment of the objective pursued and does not go beyond what is necessary in
order to achieve that objective [of combating criminality and protecting
consumers by ensuring that the licensees' economic and financial capacities
enable them to carry out their activity over a longer term], including by
ensuring that the national legislation at issue genuinely reflects a concern to
attain it in a consistent and systematic manner" (para 44).
- The requirement "imposed on tenderers which had
been formed for less than two years and whose overall revenues [
below two million euros during the two most recent business years to provide
appropriate statements issued by at least two banks does not appear to go
further than is necessary in order to achieve the objective pursued" (para
- The CJEU stated that "such an assessment must be
carried out solely by reference to the objectives pursued by the competent
authorities of the Member State concerned and the level of protection which
they seek to ensure" (para 47). The restriction will only be justified "where
such a provision is capable of satisfying the conditions of proportionality
laid down by the case-law of the Court, which is for the referring court to
ascertain" (para 50).
Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of
"The CJEU has recalled that
national legislation prohibiting, impeding or rendering less attractive the
offer of games of chance within the single market are in violation of the
freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services. Member States
must reconsider the proportionality of requirements under primary as well as
under secondary legislation".
Conformity of the Italian
legislation on games of chance with EU law has been disputed several times
before the CJEU, which has created consistent case law on the subject,
including most recently, about the conditions imposed on operators for the
tender proceedings launched in 2012, that gave rise to the preliminary
judgments of 22 January 2015, Stanley International Betting and Stanleybet
Malta (C-463/13) and 28 January 2016, Laezza (C-375/14).

Pennsylvania Lottery Wild Ball Offers More Chances to Win on PICK
MIDDLETOWN, Pennsylvania (September
13, 2016) -- The Pennsylvania Lottery today launched the new Wild Ball add-on
feature for the PICK family of games, offering more chances to win.
"Adding Wild Ball to your PICK
ticket could allow you to win multiple times on a single play, making it even
more fun to play and win," said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko.
Wild Ball is available for the PICK
2, PICK 3, PICK 4, and PICK 5 games, which are drawn twice daily. At every
drawing, the Pennsylvania Lottery draws a one-digit Wild Ball number that
applies to all four PICK games for that drawing.
With purchase of the Wild Ball
add-on, the Wild Ball number selected for that drawing can be used to replace
any one of the numbers drawn for base game play to help create a winning
combination for the play type on that ticket.
Players may not randomly insert any
number to create a winning play; the Wild Ball number chosen by the Lottery
must replace a drawn number.
The Wild Ball feature offers a
separate prize structure, which makes it possible for a player to win prizes
with base game play and with Wild Ball, or through Wild Ball alone.
Adding Wild Ball doubles the cost of
a PICK base game play. For example, a $1 play will cost a total of $2 if the
player adds Wild Ball.
Players who do not wish to add Wild
Ball can continue to play PICK games as they always have done; there are no
changes to the base games. Players will need to fill out new play slips.
More information about Wild Ball,
including frequently asked questions, prizes, chances of winning, rules and a
How to Play video, is available on the Wild Ball page or on any of the PICK
game pages at palottery.com.
Through September 30, Wild Ball
kick-off events will be held at select PA Lottery retailers, allowing customers
to learn how to play PICK games with Wild Ball, get a coupon, enter in-store
second-chance drawings and enjoy other fun promotions. Activities and offers
may vary by location. A schedule of events may be found on the Wild Ball page
About PICK games:
The Pennsylvania Lottery's PICK
family of games has created winners across generations. PICK 3 was formerly
known as The Daily Number, launched on March 1, 1977 as the Lottery's first
daily-draw game. PICK 4 was previously known as BIG 4, launched in 1980. PICK 5
was previously called Quinto, started in 2008. The newest PICK game, PICK 2,
debuted in 2015 at the same time the existing games were renamed. Information
on how to play each game is found at palottery.com.
About The Pennsylvania Lottery:

only state lottery to direct all proceeds to programs that benefit older

$634 Million Earned for Education in North Carolina
Education Lottery reports
new total for earnings in fiscal year 2016
RALEIGH, North Carolina (September
14, 2016) -- New results for the N.C. Education Lottery show that it raised
$634 million in fiscal year 2016 to help support education programs in North
As the lottery completed a review of
all sales and expenses for the year, earnings rose higher than the preliminary
and unaudited results reported initially. Final but unaudited results show
overall lottery revenues of $2.39 billion
and earnings of $634 million.
Lottery revenues grew 21 percent higher than the previous year while earnings
increased 22 percent.
The new results were reported
Tuesday to the N.C. Education Lottery Commission at its quarterly meeting.
Alice Garland, executive director of
the lottery, said the main factors contributing to the record sales were the
increasing popularity of the lotterys instant games and the world-record
Powerball jackpot in January of $1.5 billion.
Garland said the change resulted
mainly from both prize expenses and administrative expenses coming in lower
Administrative expenses came in $3.3
million less than budgeted, falling just below 4 percent of overall revenues.
Total prize expense amounted to $1.49 billion, but came in $20 million less
Year after year, the
lottery has succeeded in meeting its budget by growing sales and keeping
administrative expenses as low as possible, said Garland.
The success shows the
lotterys commitment to its mission, offering fun games and prizes to
North Carolinians while raising money for a great cause.
If averaged daily, the revised
results show the lottery:
- Achieved sales of $6.5 million a day on
- Awarded prizes of $4.1 million a day on
- Raised $1.7 million a day on average for
Legislators decide how lottery
proceeds are best used. Currently, lottery proceeds help all school systems
with the costs of non-instructional staff; help counties with the costs of
building and repairing schools; help North Carolina students pay the cost of
going to a state university or community college, and help at-risk
four-year-olds get a better start in school by covering the costs of attending
an academic preschool in the N.C. Pre-K Program.

National Lottery Teams Up with Video App SEENIT to Give a Unique Perspective
Into ParalympicsGBs Road to Rio
LONDON, U.K. (September 9, 2016) --
As part of The National Lotterys continuing use of innovative digital
engagement techniques, 15 ParalympicsGB athletes across a number of
sports from rowing to cycling have been documenting their experiences in
the lead-up to the Paralympic Games, using the Seenit app.
Seenit is an invite-only video
capture app and online platform, which enables audiences to get
behind-the-scenes action through the eyes of the athletes, rather than solely
relying on the perspectives of traditional film crews.
The clips were submitted by the
chosen Paralympians and are being edited together collaboratively to create
short pieces of personal and authentic content to sit on National
Lottery, ParalympicsGB and UK Sport social media feeds and websites.
Viewers can feel like they are
travelling side-by-side with the athletes to experience first-hand what
its like in the days and weeks leading up to Paralympic Games.
Want to see the gruelling final days
of training with rower Rachel Morris? Or a glimpse into what canoeist Emma
Wiggs is trying to fit in her bag? Or what final steps of special preparation
cyclists Neil Fachie MBE and Pete Mitchell are undertaking? By watching these
videos the first two in the series can be viewed here and here
youll be able to find out.
The initiative forms part of the
National Lotterys I Am ParalympicsGB campaign and comes hot on the heels
of its incredibly successful digital campaign for the 2016 Olympic Games. The
integrated I Am Team GB campaign mixed traditional mass-market media and a
large TV and OOH campaign, with much more targeted and innovative streams,
including the use of Seenit videos from Team GB stars, plus bespoke thank
you videos for players. The National Lotterys video content alone
gained a total of 18 million views across the entire campaign.
The I Am ParalympicsGB television
creative uses the same animated creative vehicle as I Am Team GB, and similarly
celebrates the unique affinity between the National Lottery-playing public and
the ParalympicsGB athletes they are supporting on the Road to Rio. The campaign
kicked off with a Thunderclap, with athletes, sports governing bodies, UK Sport
and the British Paralympic Association launching the ad at exactly the same
time through their social channels, as well as the ad featuring on TV last
Thursday (1 September). I Am ParalympicsGB will run for a month.
To celebrate ParalympicsGB in Rio
and to thank National Lottery players for the huge part they have played in
helping to make that happen through buying tickets, The National Lottery is
running two special EuroMillions draws tonight (9 September) and Tuesday (13
September) with 10 guaranteed prizes for UK players of £1 million as well
as 10 trips of a lifetime to Rio that will be won in the EuroMillions UK
Emily Forbes, Founder of Seenit,
said: The partnership between The National Lottery and Seenit has
empowered Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes to come together and become the
journalists on the ground telling their own stories. Through the app, which has
a pre-loaded video guide, the athletes are able to quickly and easily record
video so as not take too much time out of their gruelling training
schedules. Were now able to produce content in a very reactive and
relevant way, showcasing a completely unique, access-all-areas perspective in
the build-up to the Games.
Adam Chataway, National Lottery
Marketing Manager, said: National Lottery players have contributed
over £80 million per year to support over 1,300 athletes from both
Olympic and Paralympic sport so its fantastic to be able to work
with Seenit to give them a behind-the-scenes peek into the day-to-day routines
of these sporting heroes. Every National Lottery ticket and Scratchcard
purchased helps our athletes and all our players should truly feel I Am

founded. Tiffany Young Breakfast with Tiffany blog
Seenit is an app and platform which
helps brands and organisations co-create video with employees, fans,
journalists and experts from around the world. It's a tool which makes it easy
to direct and collect video from smartphones, by setting tasks within the app;
the target 'crew' follow the instructions and upload video. The content arrives
to a central private online studio where films can be quickly edited and
distributed out to social media.
It is a way for organisations to
engage with the people who are most passionate about the brand and empower them
to be the content creators. We're working with brands such as The National
Lottery, the BBC, Red Bull Racing, Benefit, The Body Shop, Crystal Palace
Football and The UFC.
