Utah residents use border cities for gambling, lottery

As part of a series on gambling in Utah, Lee Davidson of The Deseret Morning News used Idaho state data to show that "the top six Idaho lottery sales sites are on the Utah border - and they sell up to 27 times as many tickets as the average Idaho lottery site." One store just north of the border sold $2.5 million worth of tickets during fiscal 2004. "The tiny Idaho border towns of Malad, Franklin, Fish Haven, Preston and Weston have a combined population of only 7,900 people. But they sell 8.5 percent of all lottery tickets in Idaho - a state with a population of 1.37 million - thanks to the help of Utahns."
