Over the past year, the Arkansas Lottery has shown its true colors. Due to flawed legislation passed by our state legislature, the Lottery Commission has been allowed to expand the lottery at an alarming rate with new games and constant advertising. The result: Arkansans with the least to lose have lost the most.
In this video, we discuss why the lottery vending machines being touted are such a bad idea and how they’ll entice minors to gamble.
The following is a press release from Family Council.
Today, Family Council criticized the lottery commission’s plan to install up to 100 lottery ticket vending machines in stores across the state.
“This is just another example of Arkansas’ lottery commission trying to institute as much gambling as possible as quickly as possible,” said Family Council President Jerry Cox. “In the last year since the lottery began, Arkansans have been inundated with more gambling than many states saw in the first 5 years of their lotteries.”
