Despite high opposition, the Michigan Lottery is still pushing to allow internet lottery ticket sales.
The Michigan Lottery is pursuing internet lottery sales in an attempt to raise sales and allow for a broader and younger audience. The proposed iLottery plan is set to launch in early 2014 following a U. S. Justice Department decision to allow online gambling.
Naysayers fear that internet lottery sales could lead to higher gambling addiction as well as take money away from lottery vendors who rely on the money from lottery sales.
Michigan Lottery representatives believe that if the lottery does not embrace the internet age it will become irrelevant.
