Lottery Research

Research America has had significant experience working with state lotteries during the past 35 years. This experience includes player and consumer tracking studies, our proprietary scratch game concept testing, multivariate player segmentation analyses, new draw game concept tests, advertising ROI modeling, and messaging and advertising research.

Research America is a marketing research and strategic consulting firm helping state lotteries, entertainment, and retail organizations define their brand and product strategies in a complex world. In addition, Research America leverages experiences across industries to enhance the value of its work in others. For example, we have brought techniques from consumer packaged goods (CPG) to our lottery market research studies, and techniques from healthcare to our B2B industry clients, and more.
