Lotteries as source of revenue for states
State lotteries are popular for a reason. Not only because they are fun, but also because they’re a source of revenue for the states. A few years ago, in 2009, the lotteries raised 17.6 billion dollars in profits for state budgets in total! Even 11 states collected more revenue from their state lottery than the income tax. The popularity of lotteries also gives some problems. For example, it’s good for the revenue of states but advertising and funding is reduced. The advertising budgets for lotteries are not very high because of the law. Although it gives them revenue, the states are very careful with gambling. They want to prevent that too many people develop a gambling addiction.
Prohibition of lotteries in some states
In some states lotteries are prohibited. People living in Mississippi, Alabama and Utah cannot participate in the lottery because of religious reasons. The Mississippi Gaming Commission also sees lotteries as a ‘competition’ for casinos in the state. They are afraid to lose sales because of it. So, it is possible to take a gamble in Mississippi, only not in the lottery.
In the last couple of years new technologies have been introduced in lotteries. It has made organizations like PowerBall and MegaMillions even more popular. Nowadays you play the lottery on your phone, and win the Jackpot from the comfort of your own home. Multiple lotteries organize these games as well.
