The Michigan Lottery’s plan to integrate ticket sales online through their iLottery program has been put on hold following unavailable funds.
The Michigan Lottery has been working hard ot launch online lottery ticket sales. However, their iLottery program, as they have been calling it, has been put on hold after legislators blocked the request to allocate money for the program.
The iLottery program would allow lottery players in Michigan to purchase tickets online. The Michigan Lottery is in the process of finding developers who can help implement their plan. The Michigan Lottery believes that digital ticket sales will help playing their games be more easy and convenient for consumers, and allow for a possible rise in revenue.
The biggest concern from legislators is a growth in gambling addictions. The Michigan Lottery fights hard to help keep people from becoming addicted to gambling, and even offers help for those who are seeking guidance.
The Michigan Lottery has been working to offer online sales since February 2013, but has yet to reach their goals. They are still in the plannign stages, but hope to have internet ticket sales available by 2014.
