Idaho just started selling what they call Tap Scratch Games which are paperless.  I have not seen them yet as they are only sold in 21+ retailers, and none near me.

Any other states selling these?

      Sounds like one step away from a slot machine....wonder how many people will get addicted to it and need help.

      They better start getting a 1-800-TAPPED OUT phone number ready.

        That's what I was thinking, lottolaughs, a lot like casino gambling.  I'm surprised the Indian casinos aren't up in arms about it.

          Exactly! They dont want to see anyone honing in on their action.

          I can just see the lines now. Someone standing at the machine...

          TAP "Crap!"

          TAP "Ooh,so close.."

          TAP "This one's gotta be winner."

          TAP "Dangit,this machine!"

          Angry Crowd from behind..C'mon,buddy,move it!

          "Just a second..just a second..."  TAP  "Holy @#$#!!...nothin!"

            It looks like there is a couple in my area, but I don't see myself ever playing it. I don't really get into scratch off tickets and I don't think I want to play a paperless one. LOL

              I didn't notice Crescent Bar at first glance.  That's not far from me, and I occasionally walk past there but I'm not sure I'd want to go in just to get lottery.  Wouldn't that be a little weird?  LOL  Besides, I don't often play scratchers because it goes too fast - you find out you lost without having time for anticipation.  I'd think these things would be even worse and not at all satisfying for me to play.  Really, the only good thing about these is that they don't leave a mess of black scratchings all over, and under your fingernails too.

                I can see bars & clubs, but never thought i would see Chain restaurants(dennys/Popeyes) with some sort of gambling.

                    I see Idaho's got a game called "Fruit Chase".

                    I'd more expect to see that in California, not Idaho.
