They also probably knew the controversy itself would promote some advertising

Exactly.  This whole thing reeks of a publicity stunt.

    Actually  "Kwikies" was an apt name.

    I can see the tag line -  Get some Kwikies and get screwed real fast!

          The printable ones were:

          The Red Light District scratcher (win $ for mom so she can retire!)

          No-tell motel scratcher (self-explanatory)

          I ain't your daddy! (Win $ to locate your real father).

                I was starting to plan a trip to Maine for a Quikie too. I guess I can continue to get screwed elsewhere.  Smile

                    Thank goodness it was smacked down. What's wrong with scratch-offs for a general term? Everyone knows that.
                    This was part of the sex sells brand of thinking. Who thought it was cute to associate instant games with something
                    that's been known for years to mean - like they said: a quick sexual encounter?
                    Personally, I'm glad PA won't have the chance to rename the instants with a term similar to this one. (one state
                    dreams up something and others tend to follow)

                    Can you imagine the 20ish young lady working behind the counter and all the reduced testosterone in the form of
                    balding, overaged, overweight, ugly men coming up looking for a cheap thrill and saying:

                    'Hey, honey, gimmie a Kwikie'. You know that a chew laced, crooked, no good smile along with a sick snicker would
                    accompany that request.

                    We have enough gutter minds. I'm happy some of the world still has some dignity.

                    WTG people of Maine!!

                      Did they figure that out on their own or did someone have to tell them the name was lewd. All in the name of profit. Roll Eyes

                          They spent $ on ads and thought this was going to work. They are big dummies.

                          Almost makes me embarrassed to say I'm from Maine. Not being a dummy myself I moved to the state next door.
