The Lottery Outperforms Other Products

Lottery products average profit per year is $15,000 and there's no upfront cost (includes Commissions and Bonuses).*

Candy profit = $6.00 per sq. ft.  arrow  Lottery Profit = $28.56 per sq. ft.**


Low Inventory and Great Financial Terms

· The Lottery provides up to 50 days net financing. No other product offers these terms.

·  Draw Game tickets don't expire like other perishable goods. If sales of a Scratchers® ticket is slow, we'll take it back and give you credit for it.

·  There is very little "inventory" on Lottery Scratchers tickets, and draw games have virtual inventory in a computer.

· Lottery Scratchers products are delivered via UPS within 24 hours of order placement (if ordered by 3pm).


We Build Traffic to Your Store!

· Jackpots drive traffic to your store and generate add-on sales of other products. 

· Recent studies show that for every $5 Lottery transaction, players spent an additional $10 in store.*** 

· The Lottery introduces 3-4 new Scratchers games each month, which generates a constant flow of traffic to your store.


California Lottery Has Delivered

· $28 Billion to Public Education since 1985, more than $1 Billion each year. 

· 95% of every dollar spent goes back to the community to help create more educational opportunities for California students. 

· $5.3 Billion to Retailers from commissions and bonuses since the Lottery's inception in 1985.
