Online Lotteries Face Resistance In State Legislatures
07 Mar, 2014
Sara Friedman, GamblingCompliance
At least three states are considering legislation to ban online lotteries amid concerns over the use of credit cards to purchase lottery games.
With more state lotteries starting to introduce online games, lawmakers in Colorado and Minnesota are pushing back with new legislation to ban online sales. Last week, the Colorado House voted for HB 14-1142 to prohibit the Colorado Lottery from authorizing the sale of lottery tickets online, sending the bill to the Senate for approval. HB 14-1142 was able to sail through the House due to legislators’ concerns about local taxes and underage participants, Mark Larson, Colorado Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association executive director, told GamblingCompliance.
