A curious question. Not too long ago, it seamed just about any house that had a lotto vendor was seen as running a scam to relieve the gullible of their money. I’m not saying ALL were like this, but as a golden rule… being an establishment owner, these have always been forbidden for the bad reputation they draw. Now gold isn't worth even near as much as it use to be… but now it's not the lotto vendors… it's establishments dedicated to gambling. Honestly, I’ve never been to one… not wanting to get mixed up with questionable activities, but it seems to me if they were operating in real life, they would get shut down by the police. hehe. So… forget the official rules, what do you think as a player?
