Illinois Lottery Reorders Slingo
Illinois Lottery Reorders Slingo

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (April 17, 2003) -- Oberthur Gaming Technologies (OGT) is proud to announce that the Illinois Lottery has placed their second order for Slingo®! After two weeks on the market, the high sales of Slingo® warranted another order. Illinois makes the 9th lottery to reorder Slingo®, at least once since OGT acquired the rights in 2001. And with increased sales and profits, most lotteries keep reordering. Eleven more lotteries are scheduled to launch in 2003, which include New Zealand and Virginia.

The Lottery launched its first order of classic Slingo® at a $3 price point, on March 6, 2003. Slingo® sales increased by more than 50% in the second week and have continued to gain momentum. "Slingo® has given our players a reason to have more fun", said Lori Montana, Director for the Illinois Lottery, "Our reorder will sustain the excitement surrounding the game and keep our players coming back."
