Other than scratch tickets? (where winners are pre determined, and do not really follow mathematical odds, except of random distribution).
Sure hope so, that's been introduced in thel legislature over the years, never made it.
Still haggling over slot machines. Unlike Delaware, West Virginia and other states, the slots will not be ran by the Lottery bureau, but in private control, like New Jersey. My buddy at the Capitol says that the Lottery bureau will run the (Bar?) Keno (such as in Md., W.Va., and other states) when it comes. (I hope you're right). By that time, I'll probably get those Senior Citizen Lottery benefits.
In Pa. Lottery proceeds benefit "older" Pennsyklvanians, in other words those over 65. That's why Lottery won't run the slots. Governor wants slot money to swap property/school taxes for direct funding. Big deal, property tax is at the county and local (school district) level.
