Northeast WI Technical College - Janev Smith

Our Digital Scratch Off game went great for our Student event! It took a little time for me to understand how it ran and set it up but once I got that down and launched it, the game ran without a hitch. Whenever I had a question or didn’t understand something Dennis responded quickly, either by phone or email, and took the time to walk me through things. We will work with and run it again in the near future!
