Anyone know the legal issues with starting a privately owned lottery either in the USA or abroad? Thanks.

    Legal You say? Don't you mean ilegal?

    There is nothing legal about that, not here on the USA, anyway.

    Abroad? I don't know, ask Todd.

    EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
    Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

      It's illegal, don't try it.

       

      Check the State Lottery Report Card
      What grade did your lottery earn?

        I thought over seas lottery operations were legal if they don't cater to places like the US.

          My answer would apply mainly to the USA.  However, it is also true in many -- maybe most -- other countries.  There are very few countries that have no restrictions on starting your own lottery.
