Scholarship Lottery last week surpassed its previous cash sales record for
annual draw game sales. Additionally, over Memorial Day weekend,
Arkansass Lottery surpassed its cash sales totals for fiscal year 2015.

TRENTON, New Jersey (May 27, 2016)
New Jersey Lottery instant ticket players claimed more than $114 million
in cash prizes during the month of April. That brings the Fiscal Year 2016

purchased the ticket at Centre Exxon, 1441 Route 1 South, Edison in Middlesex
County. Singh was visiting his son in Fords, New Jersey when they stopped for
gas and the ticket. I couldnt believe it, Singh said. He
plans on investing the money.
The other million dollar ticket was
claimed by Estefania A. from Lakewood. This mother of two is a factory worker
and enjoys playing scratch-offs. The 50X the Cash has always been her favourite
and this win reinforced that sentiment.
She scratched the winning ticket but
moved onto scratching off other tickets before she gave this one a second look.
Her children were present when she scratched the winning ticket and so they
were able to share in the excitement. Estefania is still considering how she
will enjoy the money but said that she may purchase a house. Her lucky retailer
is Hometown Food Market, 1000 Route 70 East, Lakewood.

Research Funded by Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT) Poses Challenging Questions
for Gambling Industry, Regulators and Ministers
LONDON, U.K. (May 25, 2016) -- The
Responsible Gambling Trust today publishes new research that poses questions
for the gambling industry, regulators and Ministers. NatCen Social Research,
Geofutures and Featurespace, were commissioned by RGT to address research
questions set out by the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB).
Findings from Geofutures reveal that
rates of problem gambling are higher among those who
lived near clusters of
bookmakers. Whilst the correlation does not necessarily prove causation, this
is the first time that research has confirmed this relationship.
NatCen Social Research and
Featurespace, used a 2014 survey of more than 4,000 machines gamblers in
bookmakers and data from the 10% of players who have a bookmaker loyalty
The limited nature of this sample
data means that, while insightful, findings from this study are not
representative of all people who gamble on B2 machines, but of highly engaged
The research looked at £100
stakes on FOBTs and at-risk groups:
- Overall 16% of regular loyalty card users had
placed a maximum bet of £100 on B2 machines.
- However, stakes of £100 are rare only
accounting for one in every 388 bets. In a typical scenario £100 stakes
happen less at the beginning of a playing session but are more common at later
- There is a correlation between problem gambling and
use of the £100 maximum stakes. Problem gamblers are more likely to place
a £100 stake on B2 machines than non-problem gamblers.
- There is a correlation between certain at-risk
groups and the use of the £100 maximum stake on B2 machines. Minority
ethnic groups are more likely to place a £100 stake, and the unemployed
are more likely to place a £100 stake more often.
The findings also highlight
different player behaviour patterns, which can be used to support
identification of problem gambling:
- Four different types of problem gamblers were
identified, deepening our understanding of different player behaviours
Introspective, Control-loss, Diverse Aware and Severe Aware.
- The most informative aspects of problem gambling
behaviour are chaotic variation in choice of stake and amounts of
- Somewhat counter to general expectation, problem
gamblers are likely to win more often, have a higher average return on money
spent, but also to have higher one off losses.

Marc Etches, Chief Executive of the

The Responsible Gambling
Trust focus is not just about funding treatment its about
preventing the harm and misery caused by problem gambling. This research
deepens our understanding of problem gambling, specifically associated with
regular users of B2 and B3 gaming machines.
This research poses some
challenging questions for the bookmaking industry, for regulators and for
Ministers, on the effect of clustering and the maximum stakes on FOBTs in
However, it also reinforces
our belief that we need to tackle all forms of gambling related harm
rather than focus on one narrow category or location.
The aim for all RGT funded
research is to help us better identify and support people at risk of harm,
whatever form of gambling they are using. Todays findings show promising
development in the potential to identify risky patterns of play on gaming
machines, and therefore design more effective intervention methods in the
Heather Wardle, lead project
researcher from National Centre for Social Research, said:
This research confirms for
the first time that there is a correlation between problem gambling and use of
the £100 maximum stakes on B2 machines. It also shows not all problem
gamblers are the same. That means that different algorithms may be better at
picking up different types of problem gamblers, which will help in developing
the next generation of intervention methods.
Gaynor Astbury, lead researcher from
Our research has shown that
the spatial configuration of LBOs with B2 machines is related to levels of
problem gambling. Problem gambling prevalence rates were higher among those
living in areas of higher density LBO concentrations. However, we cannot say
that these concentrations cause problem gambling. When thinking about these
areas, we suggest there is a need to consider local population characteristics
to help understand this trend.

of Featurespace, said:
Reverse engineering of
player data revealed that diversification characteristics, based on money
loaded and money spent, can play a role in identifying problem
