Call this one a sticky wicket. Alabama probably also sees a lot of Alabama dollars going to Mississippi casinos on top of bordering state lotteries.

These are the states that were  / are supposed to never have a lottery:

Tennessee - It was thought the Baptists wouldn't allow it.

Alabama and Mississippi - Again, 'Bible Belt' - and that was before Msisissippi got casinos.

Nevada - The casinos wan't it all, no competetion from a lottery. Hey Nevada, take a look at NJ. Maybe Mississippi should too.

Utah - Mormons. Ironic, as they finance Nevada casinos and have owned at least oner.

Hawaii - Illegal gambling interests don't want it.

I might have left a few out, Alaska? Wyoming? (although that's in the works).

I Agree! CT that's what happen in OK when we had the vote in the state they were running commercials showing everyone driving to TX to buy tickets.
