Lottery In Iowa Now Offering Receipts For Gamblers
Iowa lottery officials have been concerned with the safety of their gamblers. They have put a plan in place that will try and help make sure that gamblers will receive the correct amount won when they play the lottery.
Phase two of the extended plan will be unveiled on Monday. Gamblers will now have the opportunity of getting receipts for any lottery game that they play. The receipts are part of a gambler protection program.
Basically for anything that goes through the lottery machines, a receipt can be printed. Lottery tickets that are cashed or checked, as well as instant scratch tickets can also generate receipts.
The Iowa Lottery has been highly successful since its inception in 1985. Over $2 billion in prizes have been passed out through the lottery. The receipts are a way for people to ensure that there is n o confusion in dealing with individual tickets.
The receipts will reveal what a player wins on a given ticket. One of the receipts will be available to the retailer, and the second receipt will go to the gambler.
With lottery gambling becoming more prevalent in the United States, states are moving towards protecting their gambling patrons against fraud. Other lotteries are offering new and more expensive games to deal with the demand.
