The Senate might accept the new lottery bill in Florida which would allow at least 18 year old players to buy lotto tickets online.
Lottery gambling is about to be revolutionized in the United States, or at least in one state. The Senate has already filed the new lottery bill in Florida. This bill would let players sell online lotto tickets. Something which has been impossible in the past. However, a lot is going on until final acceptance as the bill would be in use as of July 1, 2016. The lottery bill in Florida would of course disallow players under the age of 18 from buying tickets for gambling through the Internet.
With the legislation of playing online lotto in the United States, a great boost of gambling revenues are expected to be received by the state. This is the strongest point in Democratic Senator Gwen Margolis’ argument, who has been trying to pass the bill for the 4th time. She believes that gamblers would be more stable lottery players if the tickets could be bought online. Mrs Margolis said that the USD 5,5 billion revenues could expand even more if online selling was legalised.
Many controversies arise due to the new lottery bill in Florida
One of the main reasons why the pass is still not part of US gambling laws is because Rick Scott, Governor of Florida, is strongly against selling tickets online. The Republican politician believes it is a major mistake to let “internet gaming invade the homes of every American family”, and become part of our daily routine.
Rick Scott’s name might sound familiar to those who feel comfortable around American politics. Not so long ago, it was him who was accused of using USD 1 million from his tax payers money to pay his own lawsuit. The accusations original sources came from former Navy pilot John Blonsick, who believed that Scott hid public records and bribed people using tax payer’s money so that his lawsuit ceases to exist.
