Lottery details

Posted By on Tue, Jun 9, 2009 at 6:07 PM

Lottery junkies will want to check Roby Brock's interview with new Arkansas lottery director Ernie Passailaigue about lottery startup mechanics. There is a ton of detail.

He expects to hire 95 people and several will be vp-level. Bids to be drawn up for the big contracts. (Hey, ad agencies, cut your commission and it will increase you chances of landing the contract. Or so Ernie P. says.)

Interesting wrinkle to me. Ernie P. plans ATM-style ticket-dispensing machines. You plug in money. Get tickets. If they're winners, stick them back in to get your payoff. Does this sound suspiciously like any other form of gambling to you? Just asking.

Great detailed stuff. Check it out.
