State offered $2.2 million from lotto contractor

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has been offered $2.2 million and 400 LCD screens by its two largest contractors.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery has been offered $2.2 million and 400 LCD screens by its two largest contractors.

Director Bishop Woosley presented the offers to the Arkansas Lottery Commission Monday. He says he met with the companies last week to iron out ambiguities from the 2009 contract when the lotto was formed.

After the negotiations, Scientific Games, which administers the state's scratch-off games, offered $2.2 million as "a gesture of good will." Intralot, which oversees the draw games, offered to substitute promotional LCD screens for unshipped touch screen monitors at no cost to the state.

Woosley says he does not advocate the commission take or reject the offers that are subject to change. The lottery commission will hold a special meeting next week to review the proposals.
