Buddy Roogow, the Lottery’s Executive Director, commented: “INTRALOT has been an extremely valuable partner with the DCLB. Their creative expertise and technical capabilities have allowed us to continue a leadership role in the industry by expanding our product line with new, exciting, innovative games and distribution channels, including interactive instant games played on player-activated terminals. With these new channels and games, we have increased our sales and player base without cannibalising sales of other products. We very much look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial partnership with INTRALOT through 2020.”
“We are extremely proud to have been part of the Lottery’s success and we are very excited to continue our partnership with the Lottery for an additional five years. We are equally proud of invaluable contributions of our local partner, DC09*, LLC, its President and CEO, Emmanuel S. Bailey, and his team. Together we will continue to introduce new sales channels and innovative products and services to the District of Columbia to benefit those who live and work in the city as well as those who visit”, said Mr. Tom Little, (pictured) President and CEO of INTRALOT Inc.
