The Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, Illinois has been slapped with a $25k fine for sending promotional materials to people who’d placed themselves on the state’s gambling self-exclusion list.
Still, not great timing, considering Illinois becomes the first US state to offer single-ticket lottery sales over the internet this Sunday.
On the plus side, the Illinois Lottery’s first week of online sales will benefit immensely from an already burgeoning Mega Millions jackpot that was rolled over on Friday, leading to an estimated $356m prize for Tuesday night’s drawing. In the same USA Today article, American Gaming Association prez Frank Fahrenkopf restated his call for federal regulations re online gaming.
But just like every superhero has a nemesis, FairPlayUSA may have met its match in the Lottery Players Alliance (LPA).
The LPA’s emergence has us wondering if there’s a little known lottery equivalent of the 2+2 online poker forums, in which lottery ‘players’ gather to bitch about bad beats (winning the jackpot, but having to share it with 12 other winning tickets) and have spirited debates as to how hot ‘pro’ player Joan Rae Ginther may or may not be. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook, then you’ll never miss out on the latest gaming industry news. Illinois Lottery will continue to sell online, despite pilot program's expiration; Massachusetts deluged with responses to iLottery request. The US multi-state Mega Millions lottery to hit record $476m jackpot on Friday; Delaware to introduce online gambling bill next week.
Lottery officials reported that the Mega Millions winner hasn’t checked his or her ticket until Monday. MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts talks to Yvonne Wenger of the Baltimore Sun about the Maryland woman who claims to have won the Mega Millions jackpot, and what her attorney is saying about the winning ticket.
The small town of Red Bud, Illinois has been buzzing since it was announced one of the three winning Mega Millions lottery tickets sold was purchased at the local MotoMart in town.


CNBC's Jane Wells has been hitting the streets speaking with people who did not get lucky enough to win the Mega Millions jackpot. NBC's Luke Russert reports from outside the Maryland store where a winning ticket to Friday's Mega Millions jackpot was sold.
A customer pickets up a Mega Millions lottery ticket in Palo Alto, Calif., on March 30, 2012.
Mirlande Wilson of Haiti is seen during a news conference where Wilson claimed to have the winning ticket for the Mega Millions jackpot lottery in Baltimore, Maryland April 4, 2012. Winners who have already submitted claims will have their paperwork processed in the order it was received.
Thousands Of African- American Children Are Missing From Ohio And Across The Nation & The World Says Nothing Could This Be Human Or Organ Trafficking? Rivers GM Bill Keena told the Chicago Tribune that the violations happened by accident and that the casino had reported the incidents themselves once they were discovered. One of the main arguments against such a scheme is the theory that not having to drag one’s ass down to the local convenience store to pick up a Lotto or Mega Millions ticket will somehow produce more gambling addicts.
Illinois Lottery Superintendent Michael Jones told USA Today that only 9-12% of Illinois adults regularly play the lottery, but we expect the combo of a nine-digit payday and easier access to tickets could bump that number significantly higher, if only for this week.
Whatever your feelings re the AGA, you’ve got to give Fahrenkopf credit for never missing an opportunity to get his side’s message out. The exec director of the LPA is Paul Jason, who serves in a similar capacity at the Public Gaming Research Institute, an advocacy group on behalf of state lotteries worldwide. Perhaps there’s even a lottery version of Daniel Negreanu (Kid Lotto?), who posts lengthy video rants about how the people running the Nigerian Lottery are total fucking scammers who deserve to have their anal cavities stuffed with giant lottery balls.

Bruce Rauner signed an action giving them the legal authority to give all winners their prizes. The Illinois Lottery had previously halted payouts of more than $600 due to the Illinois state budget crisis. Frankly, given Chicago’s reputation for excessive intake of deep-dish pizza and Polish sausage, not having to schlep one’s supersized ass down to the store may prevent countless heart attacks. Lottery retailers, meanwhile, will be monitoring Tuesday’s draw to see if the online sales are cutting into their business.
For US casino firms, federal regulation of online gambling is preferable than regulation on a state-by-state basis, which is why Fahrenkopf pushes the federal message.
