Minnesota’s Online Lottery Ticket Sales to End

The Minnesota Lottery will stop selling online tickets and instant win games in a series of steps starting today. In 2014, the state became the first to offer scratch-offs on the internet, but lawmakers claimed the organization had installed the service without explicit legislative consent and passed a law to stop sales.

Bosses at the lottery fear legal action from vendors Scientific Games and Linq3 over the early termination of the online sales, with the companies claiming to be missing out on a combined $13.5 million as a result.

Minnesota Lottery director Ed van Patten also warned that, without the ability to sell draw tickets and scratchers over the internet, at ATMs and at gas pumps, fewer young players, who are used to making a majority of purchases online, would be reached. He claimed this could lead to a slowdown in sales and a cut in the money raised for the educational, healthcare and environmental programs which benefit from 24c of every dollar spent on lottery games in the state.

Van Patten’s campaigning looked to have succeeded when Gov. Mark Dayton originally vetoed the ban, only for him to relent when the spring session saw a surge of votes in favour of stopping online lottery sales. Lawmakers from both sides of the political spectrum argued that selling lottery tickets via online channels had made gambling too convenient.

This weekend’s Mega Millions, Powerball and Gopher 5 drawings will be the last for online players, with internet scratch-offs being cut at noon Monday.

The Minnesota Lottery has raised $2.4 billion for the state’s General Fund and projects to preserve its natural resources since it launched in 1990.
