Key Strategic Initiatives

Revised: October 4, 2017
The purpose of the Ohio Lottery’s Key Strategic Initiatives is to realize our vision of being recognized as the most respected lottery organization in America and to accomplish our mission of increasing transfers to the Lottery Profits Education Fund.


Making our products as convenient as possible is a high priority for growth of sales. Wherever our consumers are, we want to be there.  We intend to improve the current experience at retail by enhancing the visual presentation and simplifying retailer processes.  Expansion of the retailer base must focus on quality and sales capability rather than quantity.
  1. Increase our active retailer base with quality locations.
  2.  Make it more convenient to buy Ohio Lottery products including non-traditional trade channels and expanded self-service terminals.
  3. Improve the current customer experience at retail with enhancements to the point of sale (POS) materials.

  2. Position the Ohio Lottery as an industry leader by verifying compliance with best practices and simplifying business operations.
  3. Make retailer and customer integrity enhancements by implementing enhancements to the Ohio Lottery’s equipment, reporting, and enforcement tools.
