The sooner you notify the Lottery, the sooner we can help you!The Security Division of the Kansas Lottery performs covert retailer security checks as part of its Retailer Honesty Assurance Program.The persons performing these checks may be Lottery Enforcement Agents or their designees.Sixty-four prizes of ,000 and over (about 14 per cent) went to retailers and related parties in the Atlantic region in the 2011-12 fiscal year, according to the corporation’s annual accountability report. Atlantic Lottery recently commissioned two reviews of its prize claims and investigation processes and released those reports last March.“The reviews validated that the number of wins (by retailers and related parties) was within the range of natural variation and that our player protection processes were sound,” Kenney said One of the reports, by statistician Jacques Allard, says the number of non-arm’s-length winners of large jackpots in the region between 20 is “within the range of natural variation expected, but near the upper limit of this range.” “Further investigation would be warranted if the relative number of ,000 NAL (non-arm’s-length) winners further increases or if it does not decrease, as would be expected from natural variation,” the report concluded.
