Northstar Lottery Group has been selected to be the manager of the state’s lottery program.

Illinois now becomes the first state in the nation to privatize its lottery’s management and marketing, though the state will still own and oversee the program.

Northstar Lottery Group ultimately bested Camelot Group to win what is anticipated to be an extremely lucrative state contract. Based on projections, over five years Northstar could see more than $300 million in fees and incentives for meeting and exceeding revenue goals; however, there will be penalties for not meeting set goals.
