Iowa Lottery Going To Work To Get New Vending Machines


Des Moines, Iowa – The Iowa Lottery is going to work after the governor signed a bill Friday to allow them to upgrade their vending machines to modern technology. Lottery vice president, Mary

Neubauer, says they want to have something in place once the maintenance contract on the current machines expires.

The new machines will have touch screen technology to allow you to select the product you want. Neubauer says they have two different methods for getting the new machines manufactured.

You can now only buy tickets for lotto games at stores with a lottery terminal, but the new technology adds that ability to the machines.

The Iowa Lottery will need around 35-hundred new machines.

The controversy over the TouchPlay machines a decade ago required a change in the law to allow the use of the new technology for the Iowa Lottery vending machines.
