BILL RESTRICTING LOTTO SCRATCH-OFF SALES AFTER TOP PRIZES WON ADVANCES

250px-New_Jersey_Lottery_svgLegislation sponsored to prohibit the sale of lottery scratch-off tickets after the top prizes have been won was released Thursday by the Assembly Regulatory Oversight and Gaming Committee. Under the bill, the state Lottery Commission would be required to notify lottery sellers when the top prize or prizes for a particular lottery scratch-off game have been claimed. At that point, the sellers would be required to stop selling the remainder of the tickets in their possession and would return the tickets to the state to be destroyed. The bill now heads to the Speaker, who decides if and when to post it for a floor vote.
