MN Lottery Holiday Promotion

11 Dec 2020 07:59 | Rachel Jenner (Administrator)


The MN Lottery has unveiled their 2020 Holiday ad blitz . In their television/print ads on a background of scratch off tickets are the words GIVE JOY, GET JOY. See an ad at

I buy a lottery ticket or two when the amounts are out of this world. I cannot tell you the last time that I bought a scratch off ticket.

I have some observations in regards to the MN Lottery. Their payout averages 62%. They spend millions of dollars each year advertising their product. They make their product look more attractive/profitable than it is.  

Their rule book is less than 20 pages, while ours is over 200 (statutes and rules). They operate under the belief that anything not expressly prohibited is allowed while we know that for us anything not expressly allowed is prohibited.

Even if charitable gambling had the resources to advertise like the MN Lottery I would hope that we would not tell people that buying our product would bring joy.
