ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

The head of the Connecticut Lottery is leaving the agency after 10 years.

The announcement came on Tuesday after president and CEO Anne Noble meet with officials at the state headquarters.

In September, she will begin serving as a senior advisor to help with the transition to a new president and CEO.

No reason was given for noble's departure. No word if the investigation into problems with the "5 card cash" played any role in the decision.

“I am honored to have played a significant role in shaping this organization over the last decade and appreciate the support of the Board and my team in consistently meeting the Lottery’s mission with integrity, creativity and dedication,” Noble said in a statement on Tuesday. 

“Anne Noble has established a solid foundation for the Lottery’s future growth and this organization flourished under her steady guidance. Anne was instrumental in the successful roll out of Keno this past spring, which is outperforming expectations, as well as the expansion of the popular Lucky for Life game from Connecticut to New England, and now sales nationwide,” Frank Farricker with Connecticut Lottery said in a statement on Tuesday.
