What the Representative said about gambling is technically true. If there is no lottery allowed, and gambling is likely to only take place in casinos - which are way out of the way. However, that seems like common sense, because some people will play lotto games IF THEY CAN and won't if they can't.
Also I'd like to make the point that you generally go to a Casino with a lot more money than you go to spend on lotto tickets.... and the profit can be seen as going to something "good" (so long as the government taking the money is allocating it to schools, seniors, veterans, etc.) rather than a Casino.
I'd have to call it a good move. It's really just going to be MSLU games, (at least at first) so it's just meant to capture the audience that's going out of state and the audience that would buy them if they could.
Although personally, I like Pick 3, so I'd rather have that than any MSLU game.
