New Jersey Lottery Sales Suspended Amid Budget Shutdown

Published:

So, I wake up this morning, put on the News and the first news flash I see is: "NEW JERSEY LOTTERY SUSPENDED AMID NEW JERSEY BUDGET SHUTDOWN"...SO i'm like - WHAT!!!! ... so just to see if it's "REALLY REAL", as a lottery store is located up the street from me, I rushed up there to see if I could even buy a one dollar scratch off and the guy told me: "sorry, all sales are suspended, until further notice" ... so now i'm back home, sitting in wonderment. I've also found out that all the Casinos, Motor Vehicles Centers (MVC), State Parks and Beaches are closed as well. Oh my Goodness Lotto Friends, what are we here in New Jersey gonna do? Playing the Lottery is one of the highlights, here. THIS YEAR IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE KNOWN AS THE WORSE 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY IN NEW JERSEY'S HISTORY!!!! Guess i'll have to get in the old "Gitney" and head over to NYC - where at least I will be able to enjoy some fireworks,eat a hotdog and, - not to mention - buy a few scratch-offs and play Mega-Millions.
All comments welcomed. Especially to cheer us Lotto players here in New Jersey :)
