STATE SUPREME COURT AFFIRMS LOTTERY CONTRACT AWARD

 SCHENECTADY, N.Y., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A decision issued today by the New York State Supreme Court affirms the New York Lottery's recent contract award to GTECH Corporation for computerized game services and rejects the petitioner's argument that the award was arbitrary and capricious, the New York State Lottery announced today.
 The decision, by Justice Edward S. Conway, states:
 "The record amply supports the Lottery's determination which, under the standard for reviewing administrative decisions, was neither arbitrary nor capricious. Where, as here, the administrative action taken in making a contract award is rational, the agency's determination must be, and hereby is, affirmed."
 Justice Conway's decision also states "... that there was no departure from the procedures prescribed in the RFP" (request for proposals) by the Lottery in making the award.
 "We are pleased with the court's decision," Lottery Director Peter D. Lynch said. "Throughout the process, we were confident that the Lottery's determination would be sustained on the merits. With the decision now handed down, I look forward to concentrating the Lottery's attention on upgrading our computerized games network and raising revenues for the state."
 The Lottery and GTECH Corporation of West Greenwich, R.I., were sued in Supreme Court by Automated Wagering International, Inc., a subsidiary of Video Lottery Technologies, Inc., of Bozeman, Mont. GTECH was awarded a five-year contract for the Lottery's computerized game services in December 1992.
