In 2003, Arizona became the third US lottery to require players to be 21 years old (Iowa and Louisiana are the others; 19 in Nebraska).

    i think they made that decision for a good reason. if they were trying to control compulsive gambling at younger ages, then they made the right decision.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      I can't say they will, but I wish they would. 21 to buy a freaking lottery ticket is a testament to the way treat teens and young adults in the country, we treat them like sh*t. This new law is why I moved to PA instead of AZ.

        I live in LA and I managed to buy lottery tickets at 20 just a few times. I remember that $319 PB prize 2 years ago. That was just days before I turned 21 but I had to get into that drawing and I did. I always thought that all states with casinos had a lottery ticket age of 21 so they could have one age for gambling in that state. I guess not.

          A good amount of states, like NJ and IN, have the casino age at 21 and the lottery age at 18. I'm sure if Nevada got a lottery, it would be the same way.

            I wonder if NV is ever going to get a lottery or do u think they will? It seems like they would have gotten one by now.

              I doubt that if NV were to sell lottery tickets, they would allow                18-year-olds to play.

                How did you get $319 from Powerball?

                    perhaps AZ had a problem with younger players gambling compulsively, and decided to change the minimum age.

                      No more than most states. The problem is that there are also casinos in AZ, and the age was 18 at that time. Of course some radical special interest groups thought the gambling age should raised so 18-20 year olds don't waste all their money there (which they don't as much as these groups would have you believe). And when they say gambling age, they mean all forms, even quasi-gambling like the lottery and sports betting. So basically the lottery age was raised to keep kids out of casinos. I hope they're happy, them motherf*c*ers.

                        That's a strong statement.

                          I think even bingo players in AZ have to be 21.
