Lottery Retailers in the News
There has been growing national media interest about the integrity of some who sell lottery tickets—not about the lottery organizations themselves but the actual individuals who work at/or own a retailer location. While it appears that a very small number of U.S. lottery retailers may have committed wrongdoing, the Tennessee Education Lottery welcomes this attention as another way to raise player awareness and to help serve as a warning to any retailer who might consider taking advantage of a player. While the media interest is fairly recent, many lotteries—including Tennessee’s—have been working for years to prevent retailer infractions that could impact players. After all, if a player doesn’t believe he or she had a fair chance of winning a prize, it would make the mission of raising millions of dollars for important causes impossible.
