People could be playing with a new system when they buy their Iowa Lottery tickets next month.
Officials say their new computer system soon will be in play at 2,400 retail sites, offering speedier service and lower chances of cheating by unscrupulous clerks.
The software and computers, printers, flat-panel screens and self-serve ticket checking devices are part of a $50.3 million state contract with Scientific Games of Georgia.
