La Fleur’s Compendium of Best Instant Games
This 265-page book tracks instant practices in Australasia, Canada, Europe and the United States. Previously known as La Fleur’s Best Instant Games of the Decade, the book has been renamed La Fleur’s Compendium of Best Instant Games. TLF Publications, Inc. released the new book in late August 2012. The book includes a CD with the Excel database for all the tables published in the publication. The book costs $395 plus shipping and handling. It can be ordered online at www.lafleurs.com.
La Fleur’s Compendium of Best Instant Games covers the best instant game strategies from fiscal 1996 through fiscal 2012 for Australasian, Canadian, European and U.S. lotteries. It is the most comprehensive book on instant ticket marketing practices published in the world.
Among the instant marketing strategies studied are the number of instant games launched per year, the number of instant game launches by price point, the average prize payout by price point, the number of $1 and non-$1 instant games sold concurrently and the game introduction rate.
On an annual basis, TLF Publications, Inc. surveys each lottery organization in Australasia, Canada and the U.S. on its top three $1, non-$1 and $5 instant games. This fiscal survey provides lottery marketers with a changing snapshot of how the jurisdictions’ best three instant games performed in relation to each other. The success of a game is measured by its average weekly per capita sales for the first 12 weeks of the ticket’s launch. If provided, data on the ticket’s sales index is also listed. In addition, lotteries are also polled on their top non-holiday $2, $3, $4, $5, $10, $20 and $30 ticket as measured by average weekly per capita sales for the first 12 weeks of the ticket’s launch. This list specifically excludes holiday tickets since these products routinely are best sellers for most lotteries. Also, by examining the best seller by price point in each category, it is easier to see the relationship between the different price points. The section on European lottery organizations includes the top calendar gross instant game, the total calendar PC average weekly instant game and a comprehensive list of top gross instant games by price point.
