This video is the first in a series exploring the truth about Arkansas’ new lottery.

This video discusses specifically what happened in South Carolina after the establishment of its lottery.  To summarize, the South Carolina Lottery caused inflation where college tuition was concerned; the ease with which many students received scholarship dollars caused South Carolina’s colleges and universities to raise tuition prices, making the lottery overall very ineffective at helping students attend college.
