The Florida Lottery Act

Document Type



"Experience has shown that the common forms of gambling are comparatively innocuous when placed in contrast with the wide-spread pestilence of lotteries. The former are confined to a few persons and places, but the latter infects the whole community: it enters every dwelling; it reaches every class; it preys upon the hard earnings of the poor; it plunders the ignorant and simple."1

"The assertion that the poor disproportionately buy the state lottery tickets is only a myth."2

"No self-respecting gambler will play the lottery. The odds are too bad."3
