There are plenty of lotto lovers in Nevada. Why else would the Primm Valley Lotto Store on the CA/NV border be the number one lottery retailer in California?

They would have to do a marketing project to see how many of those people go to casinos to gamble, for one thing. 

But the major hitch will always be the profit. The casinos are in business to make money (scads of it) - and they can make relatively small change offering lotteries.

     Quite a bot of that business is Nevada resaidents buying California lottery tickets- they can gamble at home. 

    Vegas is like a neon "island", pretty far removed from anything else. When you live there you look for half a day or one day trips, just for the sake of getting out of town for a day.

      Don't they have keno in casinos? That's a type of lottery..The lottery that pays the most money in the country, Nevada should have it (except multi-state games)...

        Mesquite NV room deal  (call to verify).  Mesquite is a little over a 1 hour drive northeast of Las Vegas on Interstate 15.  Probably not available when NASCAR is at the LV Speedway.  Powerball tickets can be purchased at Beaver Dam, Arizona (around 8 miles east).

          Thanks for the info- I lived there from 1977-'93. Mesquite, Pahrump, and Laughlin are popular "day trip escapes". Boulder city is 'OK', but you can only go see Hoover Dam so many times. 

          The Community Activities link is 'nice' but when you live there and work 'in the business' you just don't get around to most of that kind of thing. There's 'two worlds', casino workers and everybody else. (In Laughlin there's three, casino workers, retirees, and bikers). 

          As an example, the Las Vegas Stars (now the Area 51's) AAA baseball team came into existence in the early 1980's. Despite 6,000 people a month moving to Vegas since then, attendance  has stayed about stagnant. What the Chamber of Commerce doesn't tell people about is the 1500 people a month moving out.

          Phoenix and Alburqueque are also "desert islands". Did you know that the catalog companies and the fast food companies use those two cities as test markets?
