Man to use lottery winnings to open new business

February 12, 2016, 11:11 am ET

A Dodge City man plans to open his own truck repair shop with money he won playing the Kansas Lottery's Kansas Hold 'Em game.

Lottery officials said in a news release 34-year-old Andew Shong stopped at HD's Sports Bar in Dodge City a couple of weeks ago to grab a beer.

"While I was there, I saw these two guys playing Kansas Hold'Em for $2 a hand," Shong said. "I knew to win the maximum you have to wager $10 a hand so I told the bartender to give me one draw for $10."

Sally Lunsford with the Kansas Lottery said Shong's hand turned out to be a royal flush that turned his $10 wager into a $10,000 prize.

Pennsylvania Lottery testing payment with credit, debit cards

February 11, 2016, 3:50 pm ET

People can now use debit and credit cards to purchase Pennsylvania lottery tickets at nine Smoker's Express stores in the Harrisburg area as part of a new payment trial.

The Pennsylvania Lottery is testing out the financial viability of allowing people to use credit and debit cards to purchase draw and instant lottery tickets. The test, which started this week, is the result of an ever-growing population of Pennsylvanians that don't carry cash and can't play the Lottery.

"We've been hearing from Lottery players for years asking for an electronic payment option," said Pa. Lottery spokesman Gary Miller. "Consumers, increasingly, are using electronic payment for all types of retail purchases."

Alabama House committee OKs lottery bill

February 10, 2016, 5:06 pm ET

A House committee Wednesday afternoon approved a bill that would allow voters to decide whether to establish a lottery in the state of Alabama.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Alan Harper, R-Northport, would currently authorize a vote on a lottery. But Harper said in committee and after the vote that he expected an amendment that would describe distribution of proceeds, which he expected to be shared between Education Trust Fund and the General Fund.

"Our vote today is for our citizens' right to vote on a constitutional amendment," Harper said before the House Economic Development and Tourism Committee vote. "It's not about us voting for or against a lottery. Our vote today is to allow the people to vote."
