Indiana (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Hoosier Lottery is being privatized and GTECH was the wining bidder.
Lottery officials signed a 15-year $1.7 billion contract with the Rhode Island company that also helps run the Illinois lottery system.
If you play the lottery, you can expect some changes, like new games, more aggressive advertising, and new retailers.
Lottery Executive Director Karl Browning says, “Every scenario that I can figure out from this opportunity is better proposition to the taxpayers of Indiana than anything else that we can do."
The contract, which will be signed by November first, will have a start date of July 1, 2013.
During that time, the lottery will transition employees.
They were careful to note that no employees will lose their job and will be transitioned over to GTECH.
