1:00 pm EASTERN Time EDT
Featuring two Roundtable Discussions
Player Retention as well as New Player Acquisition
Moderator: Drew Svitko, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Lottery
Over the past year, Lotteries gained new players and increased player-ship of core players. How can we keep the momentum going? In the dynamic, fluid market-place of the digital world, the consumer is uploading apps and trying new brands with increased frequency. They are also deleting apps and migrating to new products with equal ease and frequency. The real battlefield now is player retention. How will Team Lottery win in this new race to maintain ongoing engagement and player-ship?
Shannon DeHaven, Vice President of Digital Engagement, Pollard Banknote
Stephanie DuVal, Digital Engagement Manager, Virginia Lottery
Jessica Fritz, Digital Marketing Manager, Michigan Lottery
Merv Huber-Calvo, Sr. Director, Growth Marketing, Scientific Games
Karri Paavilainen, Senior Director, PlayLottery Content, Operations and Connected Play, IGT
Jessica Powell, Director of Player Marketing, NeoPollard Interactive
Peter Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, Jackpocket
Portfolio Management in the Digital World
Moderator: Kevin Hall, Executive Director, Virginia Lottery
Players love the inter-activity and the instant gratification of eInstants. The flip side of this equation is the shorter and shorter attention spans of the consumer. How can Lotteries keep the attention and interest of the online players? How can the science of portfolio management be applied to the world of iLottery’s digital games to enable the most dynamic rotation of games that deliver the optimal variety and combination of game-styles, freshness, price-points, and prize levels to appeal to the broadest range of player preferences?
Richard Bateson, Chief Commercial Officer, JUMBO Interactive
J.B. Landroche, Senior Vice President Corporate Affairs, Georgia Lottery Corporation
Derek Levesque, Sr. Manager, U.S. Digital Business Development, IGT
Stephanie Weyant, Deputy Executive Director, Marketing & Products, Pennsylvania Lottery
Two connecting threads that are a part of all three of these panel discussions:
How is digitization and data-modeling transforming the fields of business intelligence that drives player engagement strategies, game development, messaging, marketing and promotional strategy etc.
Connecting the online and off-line worlds : The consumer does not think in terms of channels of product and media distribution. All “channels” are on, and they are all on 24/7. How can Lottery leverage its massive online consumer connection to promote the fully integrated omni-channel gaming experience that enables seamless, friction-free migration from one channel/medium to the others?
