Asks Director Penn to define what transfers to the state are? There is a difference in percentages between Mr. Malik’s presentation and Mr. Penn’s.

Penn

Response: Mr. Malik’s discussion concerned net proceeds of both traditional and video games.. Prizes are taken out of all sales, resulting in the net revenue. Out of that net comes overhead for the lottery as an organization, specific expenses such as printing tickets, overhead expenses, retailer compensation system, and what is left over is transfers to the state.

049

Rep. Olson

Question; What is the percentage of gambling treatment funds?

 

 

 

051

Penn

Response: It is currently 1%.,however, it hasn’t always been a 1% appropriation. A letter from the Lottery Office will be sent soon to the governor and the committee requesting that the 1% be a dedicated amount from the lottery transfers.

 

 

 

070

Olson

Question: Is there research or a study nationwide as to what the impact of problem gambling and line games might be?

 

 

 

072

Penn

Response: Oregon has a very good record of treating problem gambling. Treatment funds go toward research and getting the message out about problem gambling—public presentations, newspaper and television ads, and giving the 1-800 number to seek help.

 

 

 

094

Rep. Boquist

Question: Does the lottery commission have the experience to launch video lottery?

 

 

 

103

Penn

R: Currently, the lottery is generating sales of $9 B, and video lottery represents 1/9 of increased revenue ($1 B). In case the video lottery is not approved, we began testing new line games in the Portland area that can get out in the field by July 3, and the results of that research are very important to us. We are confident that the  [video] game can be in the field by July 3 (beginning of fiscal year). Other issues  include a retailer network that is enthusiastic about the new games and willing to sign up for the new games.

 

 

 

144

Rep. Boquist

Asks about why the comparison was used with West VA.

 

 

 

155

Response: used West VA because they have a similar retailer network to Oregon’s in line games.

Q: Is there a strategic plan on-line or is there somewhere where we can look at your action steps and how you are going to accomplish all the goals stated.

Penn

R: Not on the lottery web site at this time, but it is in the handouts provided. (Exhibit 3)
