Record Year leads to record retailer commissions!
College Students in Kentucky aren’t the only beneficiaries of the Lottery’s record sales year. Kentucky Lottery retailer commissions broke an all-time record in FY16 as well! Commissions in FY16 exceeded $62.5 million. That is $6.6 million more than last year’s record of $55.9 million, and an average of nearly $18,000 per retailer!
Sales Tip of the Month
As the world becomes more and more tech savvy so must the KLC! As a company we are doing very few printed coupons and more Eblast (internet coupons) to our fun club members. This means that you will have players handing you their phone so that you can scan the coupon.
Be ready for this type of consumer as they are more apt to have a coupon or rewards number on their phone than a physical print out. With either method, redeeming the coupon is the same;
- Read coupon to determine offer.
- Make sure specified tickets are purchased before scanning coupon.
- Coupon can be redeemed by either:
- Scanning the physical/phone coupon OR
- Pressing the Coupon key
Note: When the Coupon key is pressed, the coupon can be either
scanned or manually entered.
A ‘Credit Issued’ slip will automatically print and should be stapled to the coupon and saved for daily balancing.
- Give player the specified offer, credit will show on the coupon line of your Daily Reports.
Talk to your staff to ensure they know how to redeem a coupon and that a virtual coupon, if scanned or entered properly can be redeemed through the terminal.
