Former Arkansas lottery Director Bishop Woosley has formed a lottery and gaming consulting firm, Woosley Gaming Advisors. The company focuses on providing consulting services to existing and emerging gaming and lottery vendors and to North American lotteries.
Woosley was director of the Arkansas Lottery from February 2012 until August 2020. He also served as procurement director and chief legal counsel prior to becoming director.
He has served as president of North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries in September 2019 and served as Secretary of the Mega Millions Game Group Chair. Bishop was inducted into the Lottery Industry Hall of Fame in September 2020.
“During my time at the Arkansas Lottery, I gained experience and skills that I feel will help my vendor clients position their products and solutions for the best results,” said Woosley. “My longstanding industry relationships will provide my clients access to decision makers which is so important to vendors in this industry. I can also rely on my legal and procurement experience to help lotteries in the areas of procurement, security and contract negotiation.”
Woosley Gaming Advisors has compiled a client list that includes vendors in the sports betting, in-lane print on receipt, courier services, risk transfer, convenience store, ticket pooling services, jackpot signage and video production industries. WGA has also partnered with a bi-partisan, state and federal public affairs and public relations firm for the benefit of its clients.
