The Hoosier Lottery takes its commitment to environmental initiatives seriously. As a step towards achieving game sustainability, the Lottery supported a first of its kind research into the environmental impacts of Scratch-off and e-instant tickets. The research will be available on Harvard University’s Digital Access to Scholarship system later this year.
Paper and energy consumption are the largest environmental impacts of the Hoosier Lottery. We strategically partner with vendors who operate in an environmentally sustainable manner as a measure to reduce our environmental impacts. As a result, the most substantial volume of our advertising and promotional materials is printed on recycled material using green energy.
In addition to encouraging recycling, we continued promoting green initiatives internally and externally. Recycling boxes placed at each employee's work station promote individual recycling. We actively interact with external agencies to be inspired by developments within sustainability initiatives. We invited the Indiana Recycling Coalition to speak to our employees and attended the Indianapolis Sustainability Summit in 2019.
myPlayslip Digital Playslip
To reduce reliance on paper playslips, the Hoosier Lottery launched myPlayslip, a digital playslip. myPlayslip enables players to create a playslip on their smartphone. The digital playslip allows players to save their numbers for their favorite games for future use at retail. In FY 2019, players initiated approximately 402 transactions at retail per day from myPlayslip. In FY 2019, players used myPlayslip 146,649 times, an increase of 20% from the prior fiscal year. While this represents a small number of overall usage, we are pleased to see decreasing reliance on paper playslips. Download the Hoosier Lottery app and start using myPlayslip today.
