Minnesota Lottery plans to add new game

Minnesota LotteryMinnesota Lottery: Minnesota Lottery plans to add new game

Minnesota's new lottery director said the state will need to introduce a new lottery product if the lottery hopes to meet its revenue goals.

The Minnesota State Lottery wants to double its revenue in the next 20 years -- from $100 million to $200 million by 2024.

Lottery Director Clint Harris said to achieve the goal the lottery will need to collect about 4 percent more revenue a year. He said the current games aren't likely to generate that kind of growth.

Harris said the lottery has sent a report to state lawmakers estimating revenues from the legalization of slot machines, keno and various video products being used by other states.

Harris, 49, was came from the South Dakota lottery in September. He replaced Michael Vekich, a businessman who agreed to temporarily run the lottery when longtime director George Andersen committed suicide in January.

any guesses on what type of game they will offer? i'm guessing pick 4.

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
