The NGISC report does not provide any evidence that lotteries deliberately target low-income residents. That would be highly inappropriate for lotteries to do, and yet many people do buy lottery tickets outside their neighborhoods. Many areas associated with low-income residents are actually frequented by higher-income shoppers and workers. Additionally, these areas usually do not have many stores or gas stations. Consequently, lottery outlets are not as widespread in these areas. However, the report does present strategies to increase lottery odds.
New Hampshire was the first state to pass a constitutional prohibition against lotteries
The New Hampshire Lottery Commission, which runs the state’s lottery, is not looking to shrink or scrap the lottery just yet. In February 2019, it filed suit against lottery vendor NeoPollard. The lottery company sought relief under the Administrative Procedure Act and Declaratory Judgment Act. Both requests were granted. Now, the New Hampshire Lottery Commission must decide whether to continue operating the lottery.
Despite its constitutional ban, the state lottery has been able to generate millions of dollars in the past two years. Its revenue is expected to reach $192 million in the coming two years. It launched its “iLottery” platform in September. Attorney General Gordon MacDonald filed a lawsuit against the lottery. The case was heard on April 11 by a judge. A ruling is expected by the end of May. New Hampshire’s legislature has until June 30 to pass a two-year budget.
New York has the largest cumulative sales of any lottery
New York has the largest lottery revenue and cumulative sales of any state. In fiscal year 2016, the lottery generated $5.231 billion, an increase of $1 million. Most of the lottery’s profits go to education in the state, with $3.3 billion going to schools and 14 percent of the state’s education budget being used for funding. New York is also home to three casinos, one of which opened a year ago.
The state’s lottery is especially popular with minority groups. The state has the highest percentage of African-American and Latino residents, which explains why lottery spending is higher in minority zip codes than in white areas. Despite these differences, lottery spending is still lower in white communities. However, the costs associated with distribution are also a factor. In fact, the average lottery retailer in New York earns six percent of all lottery sales.
