Instant 'riches'

Posted By on Sat, Sep 5, 2009 at 8:21 AM

The Arkansas Lottery Commission has rolled out its first set of scratch-off tickets. They'll cost from $1 to $5 each, pay prizes up to $100,000 and carry chances of winning of roughly 3- and 4-to-1.  Internal politicking has already begun. Retailers are lobbying for a better ticket sales commission structure. They are the only pure winners, making a bit for every sale.
