There are many different pieces of this giant puzzle that need to come together. The pieces that must come together include installation of ticket terminals, training retailers, testing software applications and so much more. There are many people working very hard behind the scenes in such areas as administration, finance, sales and computers to help...
This is probably the smoothest startup I’ve ever been a part of.
We want to see first how the lottery is received. Based on all of the polls, we’re making the assumption that it’s going to be very highly received. But a poll is a poll, and until we actually see what happens when tickets go on sale, we’ll have a better idea by then.
If we’ve got to stop, then we have no commercials. If we turn back, we’ve just wasted your money.
When they see that, they know exactly what it is without having to read it.
Early indications are that retailers are receiving tickets, and everything is working.
We’ve got a lot of tired people around here. People have been working all kinds of hours.
I’m confident that all we have left now is to throw the switch.
I would venture to say we are one of the top startups in the U.S. as far as total sales.
We’re just going to keep moving forward. We’re not going to do anything differently.
We received and negotiated the lowest prices and best offering of any other recent lottery in any state.
I think it’s tough to measure a lottery on the first stroke of a brush.
Overall we are very pleased with the way everything came together on launch day.
Our staff has been working very late trying to identify any possible situation.
It’s probably slowed us down a little bit, but we’re on track.
If it’s issued, we have to stop. That’s the law. We can’t do anything.
