We will continue to work with the Lottery to bring them to the next level of growth, and help to maximize proceeds to support public education in the Commonwealth.”

“We look forward to taking our customer service to a new level, for our retail partners and our players, when the new IGT terminals hit the market in 2017,” said Paula Otto, Virginia Lottery Executive Director. “Helping our 5,350 retailers deliver a secure and convenient customer experience to Virginia consumers is a cornerstone of our strategy. This partnership will help us continue to meet and exceed our profit goals in support of K-12 public education.”
