Diamond Game Awarded Missouri Lottery Contract

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA September 14, 2017 – Diamond Game Enterprises, Inc. (“Diamond Game”) is pleased to announce that, following a competitive procurement process, it has been awarded a contract to provide fraternal organization Pull-Tabs, dispensers, and related services to the Missouri Lottery. The three-year contract will run until Sept. 30, 2020, with three optional one-year extensions. The total value of the contract, with extensions, is estimated at $22.8 million U.S. dollars.

Diamond Game’s LT-3 Pull-Tab dispensers were first deployed in Missouri veteran and fraternal organizations in 2013 as part of a pilot program to return Lottery Pull-Tabs to the market. The Pull-Tab Dispenser program in Missouri serves as a key milestone for Diamond Game, as it became the first U.S. lottery to deploy the LT-3.

“We are very excited for the opportunity to continue our relationship with the Missouri Lottery and to support the veteran and fraternal organizations in meeting their goals and objectives,” stated Bill Breslo, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Diamond Game.

“Allowing fraternal organizations to sell Pull-Tabs during the past few years has meant millions more in proceeds for public education,” said May Scheve Reardon, Executive Director of the Missouri Lottery. “The fraternal organizations have also benefitted tremendously since the pilot program launched. We’re pleased to continue our contract with Diamond Game to benefit players, fraternal organizations and education in the future.”

The Missouri Lottery Pull-Tab program is one of six North American jurisdictions where Diamond Game has its LT-3 dispensers deployed. In the U.S., the Maryland Lottery and Michigan Lottery operate similar programs, in which Diamond Game’s LT-3 benefits fraternal and/or veterans organizations in those states.
