State Lottery returned $997 million in net profit for the Commonwealth during
the 2018 fiscal year which began July 1, 2017 and ended June 30, 2018.
This is the second-highest total in the Lotterys 47-year history.
The Lottery produced its record net profit of $1.039 billion in the 2017 fiscal

The Lotterys network of
retailers earned a record $303 million in commissions and bonuses in FY 2018,

figures across the board, Lottery players, our retail agents, and the 351
cities and towns in the Commonwealth all benefited from the Lotterys
fiscal 2018 success, said Michael Sweeney, Executive Director of the
Massachusetts State Lottery.

Multimedia Campaign Launch
Confirmed Scratch-Off As Preferred Moniker
LAWRENCEVILLE, New Jersey (September
7, 2018) -- Launched this week, Northstar New Jersey and PureRED, announce the
rebranding of New Jersey Lotterys Instant Games to Scratch-Offs via an
advertising creative platform dubbed Scratch-Offs Division
with a clever and humorous mix of characters that are charged with giving

30th Birthday and Lottery's Significant Support for K-12 Public
RICHMOND, Va. (September 6, 2018) --
The Virginia Lottery has introduced a new campaign to recognize exceptional
individuals who got their start in Virginia public schools. Launched on
September 4, Made in Virginia is calling for individuals to nominate
public-school educated Virginians who have found success in their career,
overcome adversity or demonstrated a passion for service to their community.
The four selected graduates will get the opportunity to award $9,000 in prizes
to the Virginia K-12 public school which played an instrumental role in their
future success. The four winners will be featured in a statewide commercial set
to air in early 2019.
The launch of Made in Virginia
coincides with the Lottery's 30th birthday this month. The first Lottery ticket
was sold on September 20, 1988, and since 1999, a combined $9 billion in
Virginia Lottery profits have benefited K-12 public schools.
"We can't think of a better way
to say 'thank you' to Virginians for 30 years of good fun for such a great
cause our K-12 schools," said Virginia Lottery Executive Director
Kevin Hall. "We are excited to commemorate our 30th birthday by celebrating
those remarkable graduates and the K-12 schools which played instrumental roles
in their ultimate success."
The $9,000 in prizes, which will be
awarded to the Virginia public school of the winner's choice, includes $5,000
from the Virginia Lottery and $4,000 in school supplies from The Supply Room
Companies. The four schools that are honored may use those winnings to address
their unique needs.
"Education has the power to
positively influence individuals' paths and the future of communities big and
small it influenced me, and it's why I chose to be a public school
teacher," said Virginia Secretary of Education Atif Qarni. "Ask around
and I guarantee you'll hear of success stories that began from a lesson in
school, an inspirational teacher or life-changing academic experience."
Nominations will be accepted at
MadeinVirginia.com through October 12, 2018. Four winners will be selected
one each from the northern, southern, eastern and western parts of
Virginia and announced later this year. To qualify, winners must have
attended a Virginia public school and graduated between 1999 and 2018.

in Virginia nomination process and eligibility requirements, visit

Gambling Commission Publishes Latest Combined Health
BIRMINGHAM, U.K. (September 6, 2018)
-- The Gambling Commission has today published the latest combined Health
Survey, which outlines participation, at-risk gambling and problem gambling
rates across Great Britain. The data, drawn from field research carried out in
2016, shows that the rate of problem gambling across Britain was 0.7%
Tim Miller, Executive Director at
the Gambling Commission said: The Health Survey, along with all of our
evidence and data, indicates that the problem gambling rate in Great Britain is
stable. However, we want to see a sustained and significant reduction in the
levels of problem gambling and will continue to drive the industry to build
momentum towards this goal.
Understanding the level of
problem gambling is an important part of making gambling safer, but what this
data wont show is the extent of the harm someone may be experiencing, or
the wider impact upon their families and their communities.
Tim adds: That is why,
together with our expert advisers the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board, we
recently published a ground-breaking approach to understanding the full range
of harms gambling can have on society.
This work, alongside the recently
published research programme marks an important step in informing the direction
of the next National Responsible Gambling Strategy, which will launch in April
2019. Comments on how the social cost of gambling-related harms can be measured
and better understood, along with feedback on the research programme are
welcomed by email: email@example.com.
- 1.2% of gamblers were classed as problem gamblers
(0.7% of the population) this is statistically stable, and consistent
with both 2012 and 2015 reports
- 2.4% of people were classed as low risk gamblers,
and 1.1% of people as moderate risk gamblers
- Problem gambling was more prevalent among people
who had participated in multiple gambling activities in the past year, than
those that had just participated in one
- 57% of adults (aged 16 and over) in Great Britain
had gambled in the past year this is down by 6% compared to 2015
- Men (62%) are more likely to participate in
gambling than women (52%)
- Most popular gambling activities were: National
Lottery draws (41%), scratchcards (21%) and other lotteries (14%)
- Gambling participation (excluding National Lottery
draws only) was highest among 25 34 year olds
- Gambling participation was lowest among
non-drinkers (36%), followed by those who drank up to 14 units of alcohol per
week (59%) and were highest for those who drank more than 14 units per week
- Problem gambling rates were higher among those with
probable mental ill health (according to the GHQ-12 score), than those that
indicated no evidence of probable mental ill health.
