Latest News and Announcements





At the Dec. 2, 2016 South Dakota Lottery Commission meeting, approval was given for the Lottery to move forward on transferring ownership of all Lottery-owned video lottery polling telephone lines to individual video lottery operators. This transfer of ownership will provide video lottery operators greater flexibility in the ordering, installation and maintenance of the phone lines in their video lottery establishments, and the ability to negotiate rates with telecommunications providers of their choice. Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the Lottery will no longer order any new polling lines on behalf of operators. The transfer of ownership process will begin Jan. 1, 2017 also, with completion expected to be April 1, 2017. Finalized transfer of ownership procedures will be provided to all video lottery operators within the next two weeks. Any questions or concerns can be directed to either Julie Pirnat-Schultz or Robyn Seibel at the Lottery (605-773-5770), This email address is being protected from spambots.
