The lottery has become extremely popular, but there's one group that's not wanted, minors.
A statewide sting has led to a new policy that cracks down on illegal lottery ticket sales to kids and teenagers. State Alcohol Law Enforcement agents led the two month investigation that resulted in 91 misdemeanor citations for stores that sold tickets to customers under 18. Teenagers were actually told to buy tickets but not to lie about their age, and to show ID if they were asked for it. Officials expect the problem to decline over time as folks become more accustomed to dealing with the rules of the games.
