NAPLES, Fla., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York State Division of the Lottery announced today that Lottery Players Publishing Company, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of LottoWorld, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTTO) has won the award to publish a monthly players digest for New Yorkers.

The company estimates that initial distribution will begin in July, with a monthly circulation of 650,000 copies of the colorful digest available at more than 12,000 New York Lottery retail outlets throughout the state. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, the Digest will be the fourth largest publication in circulation in New York, behind Modern Maturity, TV Guide and Reader's Digest. LottoWorld, Inc., a Naples, Florida-based publishing company, has also signed an agreement to publish a similar digest in Louisiana, with a projected initial circulation of 165,000 copies per month. There are also several other pending contracts with major lottery states in the U.S. to publish a similar lottery information digest. The Company believes that the awarding of this contract could have a positive impact on future revenue.

The publication, New York Lottery Players Digest, will be a 48-page, digest-size magazine distributed free at lottery retail locations throughout the state. The publication will offer lottery players information about new and existing New York lottery games, profiles of lottery winners throughout the state, interesting playing tips and strategies and state lottery news and information.
