Hoosier Lottery meets with Evansville
area retailer advisory board
INDIANAPOLIS – The Hoosier Lottery continued its outreach to retailers around the state Wednesday, this time meeting with a retailer advisory board in Evansville.
The round-table meeting format brought key retailers from the Evansville area together with Hoosier Lottery management to discuss the current business climate for Lottery retailers and how the Lottery can better serve retailer business needs in the market. Both chain stores and independent stores were represented among the attendees.
Hoosier Lottery officials also presented to retailers the key pillars of its future business plan, which will responsibly generate more than $500 million in additional surplus revenue for the state and $200 million in new retailer commissions during the first five years of the plan.
“The feedback provided by our retail partners is invaluable to us and gives us the tools necessary to help them be more successful,” said Connie Laverty O’Connor, CEO of GTECH Indiana, working on behalf of the State Lottery Commission of Indiana.
“The Hoosier Lottery must provide products and technologies that perform at the highest level in the retail environment and our retailers are helping us understand what those products and technologies need to be,” said Laverty O’Connor. “We are grateful for their partnership and so appreciative of what they do.”
Wednesday’s meeting in Evansville was the fourth retailer advisory board meeting to take place in the past five weeks. Hoosier Lottery officials previously met with retailers in Fort Wayne, South Bend and Indianapolis.
