State of New Jersey
Department of the Treasury 
For Immediate Release
April 12, 2013 
Northstar New Jersey Lottery Group To Be Awarded Marketing and
Sales Contract to Support the New Jersey Lottery 
Trenton - To ensure the future performance of the New Jersey
Lottery exceeds its past record of providing essential support
to State institutions and education programs, the Department of
the Treasury’s Division of Purchase and Property has issued a
Notice of Intent to award a 15-year contract to Northstar New
Jersey Lottery Group to provide the Lottery with services to
support its marketing and sales operations. 
As part of the contract terms which guarantee the State a
minimum amount of income, Northstar NJ will provide an
accelerated payment of $120 million to the State upon the final
award and execution of the contract. It has also committed to
generating at least $1.42 billion of total additional net income
for the State from Lottery operations over the life of the
contract with a potential actual increase in net income of $6.88
billion. The $1.42 billion mark is above and beyond what the
State could expect to see if Lottery operations remain
Northstar NJ is a joint venture consisting of GTECH Corporation
of Providence, Rhode Island, Scientific Games International of
Alpharetta, Georgia, and OSI LTT NJ Holdings, a unit of the
Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System (OMERS). GTECH and
Scientific Games are two of the world’s leading companies in
lottery management and OMERS is one of the largest pension funds
in Canada. 
“For more than 40 years, the Lottery has provided critical
financial support to New Jersey’s institutions and educational
programs. The contract we plan to enter into with Northstar New
Jersey protects that legacy commitment to New Jerseyans by
positioning the Lottery for sustained growth and continued
success in the face of an increasingly complex and competitive
marketplace,” said State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff. 
Carole Hedinger, executive director of the Lottery, said the
contract will immediately strengthen its operations. “GTECH and
Scientific Games have outstanding records of success in helping
public lotteries grow their revenues and improve their
operations. Their business plan for the Lottery is solid, well-researched and builds upon our existing strengths.” 
“With GTECH and Scientific Games’ world-class resources and
expertise available to us, we’ll be able to respond quickly to
our customers’ preferences and apply new technology and more
individualized support to help our retailers boost their
profitability and efficiency,” she added. 
The contract is the result of an intensive review of the
Lottery’s current operations and its position in a fast-changing
global gaming marketplace that began more than two years ago and
has included extensive public outreach. 
The first phase of the new contract will be a transition period
in which Northstar NJ will work closely with the Lottery on
preparing to deliver the full range of marketing and sales
services specified in the contract. 
Since it began operations in 1970, the New Jersey Lottery has
provided more than $20 billion in support to State institutions
and education programs. In the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012,
the Lottery generated revenues of $2.76 billion and contributed
$950 million in support to the State.
