the state cant have it both ways and keep the money from purchased tickets in these cases and void the winnings if by chance one of these tickets wins.

Agreed, but the cynic in me can see the state somehow finding a way to keep it for themselves so they can re-allocate it in some retarded fashion. It's found money to them.

Give him the 50k/yr and have him deal with the violation of his probation.

if someone's stupid enough to buy a lottery ticket... lottery is a good way for the idiots to provide funding, and if that involves taking advantage of said stupid people, well, keep it coming.

You must know the story in Britain about the convicted rapist who bought a ticket whilst on day release and scooped the 7 million jackpot..sickening!

I don't really see how that is sickening atall tbh. He has a right to have money and do what he wants with it. I think it's just peoples pure jealousy that made that an issue.

so he's a convicted rapist. the law's taking care of him. stop your vigilante sort of justice by implying that because he's a convicted rapist that means nothing else good should happen to him.

Yeah, seriously, one of the most detrimental, for yourself things to do, while also being one of the best, for the commonwealth, things to do is banned for felons? That's not cool.

How arbitrary is it that he's banned from gambling for robbing banks? I mean why not bar him from drinking coffee or watching wheel of fortune.

The man probably has a gambling addiction and presented that to the court as the reason why he robbed the bank. Instead of just locking the man up the court tried to assist in his rehab.

Is this standard to not be able to buy lottery tickets as a felon? I've never heard anything like this before.
