Did you know that when you play coin-based amusement devices - win or lose - you contribute to Georgia’s HOPE (Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally) Scholarship and Pre-K Program? Bulldog Gaming is proud to play our part in helping to expand educational opportunities for young children and exceptional high school students.
What is HOPE?
Funded by the Georgia lottery, HOPE scholarships are awarded on a merit basis and provide financial assistance to the state’s students. The program has helped over 1.8 million students attend the state’s public and private universities and technical schools. Georgia’s Pre-K Program is similarly funded and provides children ages 3 and 4 with access to high-quality preschool experiences that prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.
How You Can Help:
In 2021, the Georgia Lottery raised over $1.5 billion for Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship and Pre-K program, $60 million of which was contributed through the play of COAMs (Coin Operated Amusement Machines)! Both numbers represented the Georgia Lottery Corporation’s most successful year ever, with historic profits generated for the state’s educational programs.
We want to do even better in 2022. For this fiscal year, COAMs are expected to contribute a little over $50 million to these vital educational programs - meaning that we are currently behind schedule in contributions for this year.
However, it’s not too late to reverse course. In fact, it’s quite easy: simply play amusement machines! It doesn’t matter if it's pinball, claw machines, other arcade games, or skill-based redemption games, win or lose you will be contributing to important programs aimed at investing in Georgia’s youth. Let’s try to reach $70 million in contributions this year!
So what are you waiting for? Go out there, have fun, and change a life while doing it.
