Opinion sought on lottery and keno/bingo games

State Rep. Mark Perry of Jacksonville has asked the attorney general for a legal opinion on whether lottery retailers can conduct draw games where winnning numbers are displayed on video monitors. If so, he continues, could the lottery market a keno game and does the law set any limits on frequency of play. He also asks about the legality of offering a draw game or instant ticket game marketed as "bingo."

This is an outgrowth of discussions about the lottery adding keno as a means of generating more money for lottery scholarships. Keno is typically played in something akin to a casino setting, with players picking numbers and playing multiple games in fairly rapid succession.

The Oregon lottery allows you to watch the drawings "live" on-line, every four minutes.
