“Appearances” and “Morning Routine” feature Little Bit of Luck character
August 23, 2012, New York, NY – The New York Lottery and DDB New York have launched a campaign for the New York Lottery in two television spots, “Appearances, “ and “Morning Routine, “ all portraying the little bits of luck in human form that are popping up everywhere for NY Lottery players who experience good fortune throughout their day, such as not being locked out of the house, a piece of toast accidentally falling off a plate and landing right side up on the kitchen table, or getting winning number on a scratch-it ticket.
Underway October 2012 Little Bit of Luck is becoming a staple in the NY Lottery ads after being brought back this year to front the overall New York State Lottery. The Little Bit of Luck character was introduced by the New York Lottery in 2008 for the Take 5 Lottery Game.
About New York Lottery
The New York Lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable lottery, contributing over $3 billion in fiscal year 2010-2011 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s aid represents over 15 percent of total state education funding to local school districts.

It takes into account both a school district’s size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.
