A few months ago, Arizona Lottery Co. announced that it had received $7.3 million in donations from the Delaware Lottery Corp., and the two companies are now working on a possible partnership.

    The Arizona Lotteries’ annual awards have increased by nearly $6 million over the past three years, while the Delaware’s have increased a bit, with $2.3 billion donated.

    Arizona officials hope that this partnership will allow the state to use the money it received from the lottery to help the state in other areas.

    A couple of weeks ago, the two entities announced that they would be working together to provide an additional $2 million annually to help fund a variety of initiatives, including a new research program to study the impacts of marijuana legalization on the state’s youth.

    “This is really a partnership that we are really looking forward to, and we’re excited to see what they do with it,” said Jeff Gorman, executive director of the Arizona Lotters Association.

    “We’re just looking forward for the opportunity to see if it’s really going to be a good investment for Arizona.”

    Arizona officials are also working to get a better understanding of the impact that legalization in the state has had on the lottery industry.

    Arizona has been a leader in the legalization movement in the past, but they are not currently on the forefront of this.

    Since 2013, the state hasn’t had a winning lottery ticket since 2009, when the state lost its lottery.

    The two state lottery systems, which are jointly operated by the state and federal governments, are considered the nation’s two largest, with a combined annual revenue of $22 billion.

    That has resulted in the two systems dealing with a lot of different issues, including funding and regulation.

    In 2014, Arizona announced that the state would be cutting its lottery revenue to $3.4 billion in 2020, and that its revenues would be reduced by 25 percent.

    That meant that the two state systems would have to rely on outside funding sources, as well as state and local government contributions.

    While the two states were not able to come to a solution to this problem, they are both looking into the possibility of a partnership.

    In Arizona, officials are hoping to see a reduction in lottery fees by about $200 million in 2020 and a $1 billion reduction in taxes.

    The state hopes to get its lottery revenues up to $5.5 billion by 2023.

    The $1.5-billion reduction in revenue could come in the form of higher ticket prices, which could lead to a boost in attendance for the lottery, which is a crucial revenue source for the state.

    “There’s no question that if we had a partner that could really do this, we could do it, that would be a win-win for all of us,” said Gorman.

    “It could really change the way we look at how we think about the economy, how we invest in the education system, how much we invest into our health care system, and how much money we spend on education.”

    The partnership could also help Arizona get ahead of the legalization debate nationally, and also help it avoid any negative ramifications for the tourism industry, which has been hit hard by legalization.

    The lottery industry is one of the largest employers in Arizona, with nearly 7,000 employees.

    As the number of visitors to Arizona has increased in recent years, it has become a prime destination for the two lottery systems to attract more people, as they compete for that money.

    The economic impact of legalization is likely to be an issue for both the two federal and state governments, which will have to weigh the economic benefits of legalization against the cost of running a state-run lottery.

    But Arizona officials believe that a partnership with Delaware would be an easy way to do that.

    “They’ve got a lot more resources than us and we do not have the kind of resources that Delaware has,” said Jim Pfeiffer, Arizona’s chief operating officer.

    “In a lot and a lot different ways, they’re going to have a lot less money to spend on regulation and enforcement.”
