New Mexico State Bird Featured in New Lottery Game


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (March 6, 2018) -- The roadrunner is New Mexico’s state bird and an iconic symbol featured in the Lottery’s logo design. Now, New Mexico’s feathered friend debuts on March 6 as the star of a new Scratcher, “Roadrunner Riches.” 

The game displays a southwest desert with coyotes and cacti. Players scratch a path over a river and through the desert for a chance to win a top prize of $25,000.

The game plays off the roadrunner’s real-life diet of lizards and snakes. If the roadrunner reaches the lizard at the end of the trail, a prize is won.


But even if the roadrunner doesn’t reach a lizard, a player can still win a bonus prize by collecting four or more snakes on the three paths.

Two other new games are also on sale this March; “Lucky Me” and “Wild Doubler.” “Lucky Me” celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with lucky symbols of lady bugs, pots of gold, jewelled sevens, horseshoes and top prizes of $7,000.

“Wild Doubler” is available in four different colour schemes: yellow, orange, red, and blue with green. This $1 Scratcher features top prizes of $2,500.

All three non-winning Scratchers are eligible for entry in the VIP Club Points and Rewards Promotion for a chance to win $5,000 or points for prizes.

Legislative Lottery Scholarships

All profits from the sale of New Mexico Lottery games fund an in-state college tuition assistance program. Since 1996, the New Mexico Lottery has raised $758.9 million for education and more than 116,000 students have attended college on Legislative Lottery Scholarships.

Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) Welcomes Global Audience to its 18th Annual North American Regulators Roundtable


LAS VEGAS, NV (March 8, 2018) – More than 225 attendees from across the country and around the world converged at the iconic Luxor Las Vegas on March 7th for the first day of Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI®) 18th Annual Regulators Roundtable.

Among the attendees were some of the most recognizable and influential Tribal gaming and state government leaders.

Presented by GLI University® and billed as the largest educational and networking event of its kind for gaming and lottery industry regulators, the two-day conclave is a mix of informative workshops and inspiring general sessions covering a wide range of mission-critical topics, such as advanced game concepts, blockchain technology, skill-based gaming, sports betting, eSports, and technical standards.

A packed general session heard Kerry Bubolz, president of the Vegas Golden Knights NHL hockey team, for an enthusiastically received keynote address highlighting the impact the Vegas Golden Knights have had on both Las Vegas and the sport of hockey in their inaugural year.

GLI N America Round Table

Then, GLI President and CEO James Maida took the stage with an address focused on the theme, “Everything we do, we do for you.” He said GLI is expanding its already world-class capabilities with four independent organizations – GLI, Bulletproof, Kobetron™, and SLI Compliance™ – united by the common purpose of continually serving clients better. Maida emphasized that GLI’s nearly 30 years of experience, more than 1,100 global employees, and 21 laboratories are unmatched in the industry.

Maida also stressed that because “bad guys are getting better,” it’s more imperative than ever for regulators to stay ahead of the game, “because the risks are too high for anything else.” He noted that, based on client feedback, GLI is focused on continuous improvement of people, products, and processes; adding that GLI will be expanding its education through free industry leading webinars, creating a technical point of contact for every regulator, and increasing the number of regional seminars.

Attendees also enjoyed a thought-provoking discussion by Maida and Chad Kornett, GLI’s Director of Technical Compliance, on the future of gaming innovation. Maida and Kornett engaged in a lively interchange covering such hot-button issues as cryptocurrency, sports betting, virtual reality, and the emergence of eSports and skill-based gaming.

A highlight of the opening day’s activities was the Innovation Room, where a large crowd of attendees got a glimpse into the future of gaming technology. GLI “brought the lab to you” with up-close-and-personal presentations from Bulletproof and Kobetron. Additionally, students from UNLV’s Center for Gaming Innovation showcased new and emerging technologies.

The exciting opening day of the 2018 North American Regulators Roundtable concluded with an exclusive VIP cocktail reception overlooking the glittering Las Vegas Strip at the top of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. The chic House of Blues Foundation Room was the perfect setting for regulator attendees to meet and mingle directly with more than 160 gaming and lottery suppliers from around the world who joined the event, enjoying this rare opportunity to directly interact with such a large number of regulators.

North Carolina Education Lottery Hits $20 Billion Sales Record


RALEIGH, North Carolina (March 5, 2018) -- On Saturday, March 3, the North Carolina Education Lottery set another record, hitting $20 billion in sales.

This is an exciting milestone for the lottery,” said executive director Alice Garland. “It’s evidence that our effort to create fun and exciting games for our players is working.

Lottery Insights December Issue
Click here for the latest electronic version of Lottery Insights.

The lottery started selling games March 30, 2006 and has increased sales every year since inception. It reached $20 billion in sales in just 4,357 days.

Those sales resulted in the lottery raising over $5.6 billion for education in North Carolina.

We attribute this milestone to the fact that we’re constantly looking for opportunities to engage our players,” Garland said. “Whether it’s offering new ways to play or giving away innovative prizes, we want to make sure our players have a chance to dream a little.”

At any given time, the lottery offers 50 different scratch-off tickets at multiple price points. It launches new games the first Tuesday of every month. The lottery has three multi-state draw games and four state draw games including Keno, which launched in October.

The lottery also makes sure it offers once-in-a-lifetime prizes. It leverages marketing partnerships to offer unique experiences for second-chance drawings. For example, players had the chance to be the Honorary Starter or Grand Marshal at the NCEL 200 NASCAR race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and one lucky player won Panther season tickets for twenty years.

Since inception, the lottery has given away over $12 billion worth of prizes.

When our players are excited about the games and prizes we offer, sales increase and that means more money for education,” Garland said.

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Launches New Branding Campaign

This is Winning

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (March 5, 2018) -- The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has launched a new branding campaign designed to showcase the many different ways Arkansans can win with the Lottery.

The “This is Winning” campaign launched with 30-second television commercials during last night’s broadcast of the 90th Annual Academy Awards. The campaign features real Lottery-winning Arkansans and includes broadcast, outdoor, digital and social components as well as a redesigned mobile-friendly website and point of sale at all Lottery retail locations.

Skilrock Technologies

“Winning means different things to different people when it comes to playing the Lottery,” said Bishop Woosley, director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery. “For some, winning means an instant 100 dollars on a scratch-off game. For others, it’s a life-changing million-dollar jackpot in a draw game. For thousands more, winning means receiving a scholarship to attend college.”

“This is Winning” will include real Arkansas winners who share personal stories about how their lives have benefitted from winning the Lottery or receiving a scholarship.

The first series in the campaign will introduce a $50,000 Powerball ® winner, the director of the Arkansas Coding Academy who went to college on a Lottery scholarship, and a scratch-off winner who is also a competitive bowler.

“The stories we have heard from Arkansans about the impact that the Lottery has had on their lives have been heart-warming,” Woosley said. “From entrepreneurs to students who are the first in their families to attend college, we can’t wait to share them with you.”

Lottery officials conducted video interviews with people about their various winning experiences. You’ll soon be able to watch those over the next few months on TV, social media and the Lottery’s website.

Since its inception in 2009, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has helped provide more than 275,000 Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarships totaling approximately $738 million.

More than $2.5 billion in prizes have been awarded to players, providing participating Lottery retailers with more than $214 million in commissions.

“This is Winning” can also be measured in the $113 million of federal and state tax revenue generated, which helps sustain the quality of life for Arkansans.

Iowa Lottery is Finalist for International Gaming-Compliance Award for Work in Investigation

Long-Running Case Culminated In 2017 Guilty Pleas From Three Men

CLIVE, Iowa (March 2, 2018) -- The Iowa Lottery is a finalist for an international gaming-compliance award for its work in the long-running lottery jackpot investigation that uncovered fraud against U.S. lotteries and resulted in guilty pleas from three men.


The Iowa Lottery is one of five finalists for the 2018 award for outstanding achievement in compliance from GamblingCompliance, which provides independent legal, regulatory, and business intelligence to the global gambling industry.

GamblingCompliance presents annual awards to recognize excellence in 11 categories focused on regulatory compliance and responsible gaming. Its 2018 Global Regulatory Awards will be presented April 18 in London.

The jackpot investigation culminated in 2017 with guilty pleas from three men who admitted they illegally claimed prizes by rigging lottery drawings in five states.

Eddie Tipton, the man at the center of the investigation, installed malicious computer code that allowed him to predict winning numbers in some lottery drawings.

Tipton pleaded guilty to three felony charges in Iowa and Wisconsin and was sentenced in August 2017 to up to 25 years in prison.

He had conspired with friends and family to claim lottery prizes in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wisconsin and attempt to claim a lottery jackpot in Iowa, which ultimately was not paid.

Tipton's younger brother, Tommy Tipton, also pleaded guilty in the case, as did Tipton's long-time friend, Robert Rhodes.

The Florida Lottery’s new $30 100 X THE CASH Scratch-Off game alone recorded $34,279,230 in sales for the week; resulting in total Scratch-Off sales exceeding the Lottery’s previous weekly sales record, set in 2017, by more than $18 million or 17 percent.  More than $23.5 million in prizes for the game were also claimed last week.

With higher sales, come higher prize payouts for Lottery winners, increased retailer commissions and most importantly more funding to enhance education.  Last week’s total sales generated approximately $40 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).

Breaking sales records like this is a significant achievement,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Jim Poppell.

The Florida Lottery is proud to be able to create millions of winners, partner with thousands of retailers statewide, many of whom are small business owners, and provide a reliable source of funding for Florida’s students and schools.”

Scratch-Off games are an important part of the Lottery’s portfolio of games, comprising approximately 68 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $784 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) in fiscal year 2016-17.


The Florida Lottery is responsible for contributing more than $32 billion to education and sending more than 775,000 students to college through the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

Gaming Standards Association Creates Landmark TPI (Third-Party Interface) Standard, Streamlining iGaming Platform Interfaces


LAS VEGAS, NV (March 5, 2018) – The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has created a new, landmark specification, the TPI (Third-Party Interface) Standard, streamlining Remote Gaming Servers to iGaming platform interfaces, and breaking down barriers to entry for more game content suppliers

From a highly technical perspective, GSA’s TPI Standard is based on JSON, HTTP/REST, and WebSocket technology. It describes a standardized interface between iGaming Platforms, Remote Game Servers, and Progressive Jackpot Controllers for launching games, recording monetary transactions, posting progressive contributions, awarding progressive jackpots, reconciling interrupted games, etc.

From a layperson’s perspective, GSA’s TPI Standard greatly enables operators access to new content to retain current players and attract new players keeping them from defecting to other online casinos. TPI accomplishes this by providing greater operator access to content through faster integrations, eliminating barriers to entry for content providers, and reducing ongoing multiple proprietary API support costs.

AGE 2018

Additionally, the specification fully supports online gaming operations that service multiple jurisdictions, allowing the activity associated with each jurisdiction to be easily isolated and reported.

This is a major step forward for the gaming industry generally and for the online gaming sector specifically. Further fulfilling GSA’s 20-year mission of enabling interoperability, innovation, and unleashing creativity, our TPI Standard streamlines the very essence of the iGaming platform, and kicks the door open for more game content suppliers,” said GSA President Peter DeRaedt.

This is a win for operators who want to better service their customers with a continuing stream of new content; it’s a win for platform providers who can cut integration time and support costs; and it’s a win for content suppliers who can now more easily reach the marketplace. I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of our volunteer team on GSA’s Online Gaming Committee,” said GSA Europe Managing Director Mark Pace.

GSA’s new TPI Standard is available for license by members and non-members. Members can obtain this standard by submitting a newly executed opt-in form that outlines the new licensing requirements. If your organization is a member of GSA, send a request to and ask for a copy of the standard. If you have not yet opted into the committee, you will be asked to do so, prior to being sent a copy.

Non-GSA organizations can obtain this standard by signing the licensing agreement and paying the nominal fee. They can also choose the option of a “Committee Only” membership or one of the membership levels that allow access to all committees. More information is available at; choose “Membership.”
