This achievement comes after a competitive bid process and marks an extension of their long-standing partnership. The initial contract term, effective from October 1, 2023, is set for three years, with the option to extend for three additional one-year periods.
Diamond Game’s collaboration with the Missouri Lottery began in 2013 when they entered into an agreement for Pull-Tabs dispensers as part of a one-year pilot program. Since then, Diamond Game has been the exclusive supplier for the Lottery’s Pull-Tabs program, having earned additional contracts and securing all available extensions.

Lester Elder, the Director of the Missouri Lottery, expressed their satisfaction with the contract renewal, stating, “We’re pleased to be signing a new contract with Diamond Game and continuing to support our retailers. Missouri’s fraternal organizations have benefited tremendously since the Pull-Tabs program launched, and we’re delighted to keep supporting their efforts.”
Bill Breslo, President of Diamond Game, shared his excitement about the extension of their partnership with the Missouri Lottery, stating “We’re excited to be extending our decade-long relationship with the Missouri Lottery, and we look forward to working with its team to advance its goals.”
“We’re proud that our product supports education in Missouri and bolsters the positive contributions veteran and fraternal non-profit retailers make in their communities.”
The Missouri Lottery, established in 1986, has played a significant role in contributing over $7.5 billion to the state of Missouri and public education. The Lottery’s yearly contributions account for approximately four percent of the state’s public education funding, a vital responsibility shared among local, state, and federal governments.
