1. Top Shelf Items

Having the higher priced tickets at eye-level will encourage players to try these products more readily. The program organizes the tickets in a tiered order by price.

2. Stay Organized

The program includes price point labeling for the Instant Game ticket dispensing unit visible to both Retailer and consumer, with the exception of the in-counter unit which provides labeling visible only to Retailers. The labeling sysem provides consumers with easy visibility and a uniform system they will begin to look for wherever lottery tickets are sold.

3. The Bottom Line

Merchandising your higher priced Instant Game products will increase your overall sales and commissions.
