Oklahoma Lottery to compare vendors

Oklahoma LotteryOklahoma Lottery: Oklahoma Lottery to compare vendors

The Oklahoma Lottery Commission is scheduled to meet today to consider proposals for a variety of services related to the lottery start-up.

The commission is looking for vendors to provide online gaming services, a drawing studio, instant tickets and other projects associated with the start-up of the state lottery.

Lottery officials still are hoping to have instant tickets go on sale in October, with Lotto-style drawing games available in November. The commission also will consider applying to multi-state lottery games like Powerball and Mega-Millions. Officials hope those games will be available for play in the state in early 2006.

The commission will meet today in the governor's large conference room on the second floor of the state Capitol.

I hope the lottery commission in Oklahoma plays MM or PB. I prefer PB because their sales are still dropping. I think they should join a multi-state game because of the huge jackpots.

    Drawing Studio? Does that mean balls? I think it does.

    My Predictions:

    •    
    • Terminals - GTech (the terminal juggernaut)
    •    
    • TV Studio - KWTV-9
    •    
    • Instant Tickets - Pollard Banknote
    That would make an interesting game, "Pick The Vendors".

      Good catch JS9!  That would be extra sweet, keeping Oklahoma away from the dark side.

        It would be nice to have new lotteries be ball drawn and televised. At least then they could have a sense of integrety to their drawings that so many states now want to avoid.

          JS9--stay tuned!   The juggernaut will break and Scientific Games will be providing the on-line system and instant tickets.  Pollard will never win a start-up in the US--although they have GREAT tickets!  My guess is that Scientific Games will grossly over estimate potential revenues and win on price (by a lot!).

              JS9,

              Sorry to say at least two of your predictions are not correct.  Scientific Games wins big-time.

                  l-mike:

                  Gtech is based in Rhode Island, SGI in NY. Otherwise they don't make much difference to me.
