Description

"Increasing competition from neighboring states and an interest by Gov. Bob Taft in enhancing Ohio's lottery options prompted The Dispatch to explore the issue during the past year." Proponents argue that billions of dollars are lost when Ohioans gamble out-of-state, but who are the real losers? The Dispatch finds that "lottery players with annual incomes under $20,000 spend nearly twice as much per person ... as those in the middle-income bracket."
