SPRINGFIELD — Moving forward in its search for a new private management partner, the Illinois Lottery has posted a Request for Information (RFI) to initiate an open dialogue with market participants and gain information as well as industry perspective.
The new RFI is the first public step in a process that will ultimately lead to a Request for Proposal and the selection of a new private manager, as required by the Illinois Lottery Law.
Through the RFP process, the Illinois Lottery will seek a private partner who will focus on overall profitability for the State, increase and broaden the current player base, implement new games, technology and platforms, as well as recognize and cooperate with the State’s obligation to comply with all laws and administrative rules.
All responses to the RFI, due on October 28, 2015, will be considered and can come from experienced lottery managers, advertising and marketing experts, operators and vendors, or any consortium that can effectively respond to the Lottery’s needs.
