    Here in Arkansas, you have to swipe you ID before you can use a lottery vending machine. It would cost money for them to switch the machines out, but it seems like a simple solution to their problem.

    It's that way here in Louisiana too. I have to scan the code on the back of my driver's license before it will sell me a ticket. I sometimes wonder if the machine retains the information or not.

        no, it would be a major expense and accomplish zero. the inept, incompetent, and otherwise inefficient bishop woosley must have gone to the major expense to do this in AK. just another example of why this guy needs to be replace as arkansas lottery director.

          Could of been a different story if the kid hit a top prize. The dad would of sued for the money and the lotto would of said too bad.

            How does it accomplish nothing when it would prevent this situation from happening in the first place. You say it would be expensive but do you know the exact cost or are you just assuming it would cost too much. Also everyone seems to be complaining about our lottery director, but it alawys seem to be people who live in other states. I have not heard one person who actually stays here complain about him.

              Exactly if it had been a big winner I don't think the parents would be crying foul.
