Oklahoma Lottery chooses Scientific Games

Oklahoma LotteryOklahoma Lottery: Oklahoma Lottery chooses Scientific Games

A New York company will be Oklahoma's first provider of lottery games.

The Oklahoma Lottery Commission selected Scientific Games Corp. Tuesday to provide lottery terminals and scratch-off tickets. The company will get a $6 million contract to provide the games.

The Commission also approved a proposal that retail outlets selling lottery tickets would receive a 6 percent share of sales. The commission decided drawings for the lottery would be held at an Oklahoma City television station, but the station won't be selected until the commission's next meeting on Aug. 29.

Scratch-and-win games are scheduled to start on Oct. 12. Officials said they will run anywhere from $1 to $5, and later $10 apiece.

      I could've sworn they'd go with GTech for their terminals.

        WOW.  They are going balls.  That is strange considering he ran computers in MO.

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

          I don't think it's strange.  I think when lottery directors see the negativity that computerized drawings generate, they would MUCH rather use real drawings.

          It's much easier to move to another state as a startup and go with real drawings, than it is to lose face by admitting a mistake.

              All right, balls! So here's what we know so far

              Terminals : Like the ones in South Carolina and Iowa

              Age: 18 (the highest it should be) 

              Draw Method : Balls

              Looks good so far. We can also count on MUSL membership.

                jimmy:

                How do you know the minimum age will be 18? Oklahoma is a VERY conservative state.
