Lotto Texas: Coming to a grocery store check-out lane near you soon
Spot retailer growth: “If we go live this year with Dollar General, which is our first partner, we’re going to grow our retailer base in one year more than we have in the last 20 years.”
Texas is on a path to roll out lottery ticket sales in the
check-out lanes of retail stores, starting with Dollar General
this fall and expanding to CVS, H-E-B and Walgreens
by next year.
“For the last 24 months, we’ve been working on an
initiative we believe has the potential to dramatically expand our retail base,
allow our products to be more universally accepted in retail and, ultimately,
drive us to new sales and revenue records in the future,” Executive Director Gary
Grief told the three-member board of the Texas Lottery Commission
during their last meeting.
