RGDATA Seeks Loyalty Payment From New Lottery Operator

RGDATA, representative organisation of the independent retail grocery sector, is pursuing a one off ‘loyalty payment’ of €15,000 for retailers from the new lottery operator, Premier Lotteries Ireland, in recognition of the role its members played in expanding the business.

Tara Buckley, Director General of RGDATA, said: “It would seem only fair that if the staff of the National Lottery and the new operators of the lottery are in line for a significant return on the new investment, the retail agents, who play such a central part in the success of the lottery should also be recognised.”

RGDATA specified in a letter to the lottery operator that the payout to retailers would not be taken from money set aside for charitable contributions, the retailer’s commission or prize money.
