Missouri Lottery Partners with Deserving Missourians for Retailer Success

As part of the recent conversion process, the Missouri Lottery and IGT entered into a partnership with Valley Industries in Hazelwood to provide packing and shipping of Lottery playslips and Draw Games ticket stock. Valley Industries is a sheltered workshop that creates employment for adults with developmental disabilities.

"The integrity of the Lottery's vendors is very important to us, and they must meet the highest level of certification. All workers that pack Lottery ticket stock and playslips must pass a background check and go through a selection process by Valley Industry's staff. The workers who are chosen have a sense of pride about working on the Missouri Lottery job."- Bernard Collier, director of risk management, Missouri Lottery

With this new partnership, Valley Industries will ship to the more than 4,700 Lottery retailers state wide, freeing up Lottery sales representatives (who hand-delivered ticket stock and playslips in the past) to concentrate on retailer relations and increase sales.
