OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Lottery Commission is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider proposals for a variety of services related to the lottery start-up.

The commission is looking for vendors to provide online gaming services, a drawing studio, instant tickets and other projects associated with the start-up of the state lottery.

Lottery officials still are hoping to have instant tickets go on sale in October, with Lotto-style drawing games available in November. The commission also will consider applying to multi-state lottery games like Powerball and Mega-Millions. Officials hope those games will be available for play in the state in early 2006.

The commission will meet Tuesday in the governor's large conference room on the second floor of the state Capitol.
