Lottery Vending Machines

October 22nd, 2009 by flanews

Gamblers can now buy a scratch-off ticket the same way many people buy a coke.

The Florida Lottery is rolling out its ticket vending machines at convince stores throughout the state. They plan to have a thousand in place by November. Florida Lottery spokeswoman Connie Barnes said the machines will help boost sales.

The Florida Revenue Estimating Conference conservatively projects a 3.4 million dollar profit after all expenses have been paid to education. So, we are very hopeful that these machines will generate additional dollars for that purpose,” said Barnes.
The machines take cash only and will be watched by store owners to make sure kids dont buy the scratch-off games.
