I think the answer to this is pretty obvious, or is it?

In any event, what state is going to be the next to get a lottery?

    don't think it's obvious,also utah and hawaii should't even be on the list,nevada could do it, but would have to come up with a game to make ppl. stop buying cali. tickets.miss.is not totally against gambling,they have casinos,but their casinos are restricted to counties along the river and coast i believe.that would make it hard to have lottery which is statewide where available.so i did'nt vote.

        I have no idea but I would like to see Alabama get one.

        I know some good ol' boys down there that would like that real good.

         

        I don't think democrat Harry (the slimy weasel) Reid would allow one to compete with his union thug supporters in Las Vegas though unless he got paid off under the table real good. (He certainly didn't become a multi-millionaire on his Senator's salary)

          if they dont have enough people they can make it a tri-state thing, partner up with another/other state(s)...

                  What? Having enough people isn't the problem.

                    I got it all figgered out, pumpi.

                    1) Alaska and Hawaii

                    2) Alabama and Mississippi

                    3) Utah and Wyoming

                    4) Nevada by itself after Harry (the slimy weasel) Reid goes to jail.

                      I second this notion.

                        Some mountain states did this with the Wild Card 2.  It's played in Idaho, Montana, and North and South Dakota.  I actually thought Wyoming had it too, I was surprised that WY doesn't have a lottery.  I bet they have a lot of people crossing the border to play in other states.  Wonder why they don't want to keep that money for themselves?

                          Wyoming has less people than any other state in the union with just over a half million.

                          Now that's a good thing in my opinion but probably not good for running a state lottery.

                            What else is there to do there tho, especially in the winter?  Betcha scratch offs would sell like hotcakes.

                            Idaho only has 1.5 million, and we support Powerball, Megamillions, Hot Lotto, Wild Card 2, and Double Play Daily draw games.  There's a whole section of marmots in the SE part of the state whose bishops would be mad if they played, so there's a chunk of the population that doesn't play.  Just seems like WY could support one draw game, either one of the big national ones, or Wild Card 2.
