    Anything that's on your bank statement they can see. Charges at the liquor store. Charges at the casino. Charges at the state lottery. Charges at the on-line gambling site. Charges at the liquor store. Charges at the adult shop. 

    You see what I mean?

    When I go for a massage and the statement says charges at "friendly touch" it arouses suspicion.

            The Michigan legislature is controlled by a group of Conservative Republicans who want to control every factor of life in Michigan. I won't be surprised if Sen. Rick Jones,  who I think is a publicity whore and anal retentive, tries to control bowel movements of men women and children in our state. The people voted to legalize medical marijuana and Senator Jones immeadiately began to attack the law and neuter it. These guys scream about the government control from Washington while at the same time they try to annex our bodies and souls. The seniors that Jones says would sit on there couch and gamble, will still find their way to a lottery terminal to play. He mentions nothing about the Buses you can find in every Walmart and Target parking lot every morning waiting to ferry seniors to the casino, where I guarantee they will lose money far faster than they would sitting at home.

              Even if online lottery is legal, I don't want to participate because I don't want my credit card company or bank to know that I am gambling Group Hug

              That's a good point. I read that supposedly some credit card companies monitor your transactions to see what you are doing and use that info to decide if you get a credit increase or not. Not sure if that is true, but it is something to think about.

              In my state, online gambling is illegal and lottery tickets can only be bought with cash, no credit cards. Of course, some stores will sell them on credit cards anyway, and some still gamble online. Some credit card companies actually block gambling related transactions, I wonder if that would apply to lottery.

              Some gambling sites have ways around the blocks and the laws, and I found out when someone made a false charge on my credit card. A few years ago, I found a charge for over $200 on one of my credit cards that I didn't make. It referenced a URL and that ways it. I did some research on that URL and found it on a site that was supposedly a furniture store in London. I did some more digging and found that same URL referenced on sites that were everything from video games, hardware, even a bakery, and all were in London at the same address. I found out later that address was a mailbox rental place. Further research told me that same URL was for a gambling site. It turns out if someone wants to gamble online, it is processed through one of these front businesses, and it shows up on the credit card as something other than gambling, therefore nobody catches it. Lucky for me, they removed the charge from my card an I never heard another thing.

                      Thanks for making an assupmption about me RDGNR.  I support a law that was voted into law by the people of our state. When they legalize online lottery in Michigan I'd like to enjoy it from the privacy of my house, instead of having some  minority of idiots trying to impose Their beliefs on the public.

                       Senator Jones and yourself however seem to have a stick up your respective asses. I won't suggest that you move from your State because I'm afraid you might move to mine. Deadhead!

                        These Michigan legislators sound incredibly silly.  I wonder if they ever try listening to the things they're saying.  If they did, they might not speak so much.

                        I agree 100% Todd, try living here!

                        There trying to tell me how to spend my money or is it just so i have more money that the govt can TAX me out of? Hmmm.

                          If they have security to prevent underage from playing I think there will be no problem to have online lottery games. Online lottery game is good for people because it's accessible. If they don't have enough money they should be responsible enough to know what is best for them.
