Virginia Lottery Shatters Performance Targets to Achieve Most Successful iLottery Launch

LANSING, Michigan, October 21, 2020 /CNW/ – NeoPollard Interactive LLC (“NeoPollard Interactive” or
“NPi”), North America’s leading provider of the most profitable iLottery programs, congratulates the
Virginia Lottery on its unprecedented success following the launch of its iLottery program on July 1, 2020.

Virginia’s recent entry into a comprehensive iLottery offering now includes same-day, single-ticket draw
game sales and a robust portfolio of game content including NPi’s industry-leading eInstant games. In fact,
Virginia’s first month of iLottery results prove that it is the most successful iLottery launch in the U.S.,
tracking 140% ahead of other iLottery programs recognized for industry-leading performance. The
impressive trend continues as the Lottery completed its first quarter with over $121.5 million in topline
play, shattering its sales projections for the entire first year by 56%. By the end of the first quarter, iLottery
quickly grew to represent 18% of the Virginia Lottery’s total sales portfolio.

“We are very happy with the initial results of our iLottery platform and the opportunity it provides to
generate additional revenues for Virginia’s K-12 public schools,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director
Kevin Hall. “Our existing eSubscriptions partnership with NPi provided a foundation to successfully launch
the iLottery platform in just three months’ time, and the addition of NPi’s top performing eInstant games
has enhanced our digital product.”

Virginia’s comprehensive iLottery platform makes it the sixth U.S. lottery to venture into the online gaming
space. The Virginia Lottery’s performance underscores the significance of the incremental revenues that
the iLottery channel generates, while simultaneously demonstrating that internet sales are an essential
component to protecting revenues that the Lottery generates for K-12 public education.

“We could not be more excited for the tremendous success that the Virginia Lottery team is driving
through its iLottery program,” said Liz Siver, General Manager, NeoPollard Interactive. “NPi is committed
to delivering innovative iLottery technology and the industry’s best game content to allow lotteries to
engage with players when and where they want to play. Topping all prior iLottery launches in the U.S. is a
commendable achievement and a testament to NPi’s vision. We are truly honored to be a part of their
extended team as we share in the Lottery’s commitment to support K-12 public education in the
Commonwealth of Virginia.”
