Florida legislators are likely to pass a bill to ban online sales of lottery ticket and game. Representative William Cloud Robinson has introduced House Bill 629 for the purpose. The Gaming Control Subcommittee will now discuss the bill.

HB 629 proposes plans to prevent consumers from playing games or purchasing lottery tickets through electronic devices and is aimed to limit sales to physical tickets only. It would target all smart phones, watches, tablets, computers and all devices with access to the internet.

The bill, which would be enforced from 1 July 2019 – should it ultimately be approved – also takes action in regards to problem gambling. It promotes measures to promote responsible gambling, including written warnings on advertising and promotional materials and lottery tickets themselves.
