Section I features a “Fast Facts” compilation of data on North American lotteries, including startup history, guide to product mix, government profits earmarking and video lottery terminal guide. Section II features four-page profiles on 45 U.S., five Canadian and two Australasian lotteries. Each profile traces the lottery’s calendar 2017 versus 2016 sales by game (instant, 3-digit, 4-digit, lotto, cash lotto, keno, VLTs, niche games), its calendar 2017 versus 2016 instant sales by price point ($1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $7, $10, $20) and its projected fiscal 2018 versus fiscal 2017 ad budgets by media and by game (as well as a percentage of total sales). Each profile tracks the lottery’s five-year annual sales by game from fiscal 2013 through fiscal 2017. Each profile features the number and the percentage of total, instant and online retailers by type of business, plus each retailer’s fiscal 2017 total, instant and online sales. Section III is divided into seven chapters: worldwide lottery sales; fiscal 2017 sales, profit and expense analysis; the retailer network; ad expenditures; historical analysis; contractor survey; and calendar 2017 U.S. lotteries’ weekly sales by game. The worldwide lottery sales chapter tracks calendar 2017 traditional game sales and VLT net machine income in local currency and converted to U.S. currency for 178 lotteries worldwide, including rankings by total and per capita sales for instant, lotto, total, keno, toto and draw games.
