How to Increase Traditional and Instant Sales Through Product Planning to Purchase Forever, lotteries have been learning from each other to develop products and optimize sales distributions methods. They have shared games, names and ways to promote their products. This session will give actual case histories of new and innovative ways to increase traditional and instant sales. We will also introduce new products, promotions and services that can assist your lottery. If your lottery sells any paper lottery product players can win a prize from, you will not want to miss this session.
