Sales of lottery tickets steadily decreasing

J. Andrew Curliss and Dan Kane, Staff Writers
Lottery fever is fading, new numbers show.
The introduction last week of two new scratch-off games did not keep the state lottery from seeing sales decline from the previous week.

Average daily sales of scratch-off tickets have dropped every week since the games began March 30. A breakdown of the sales:

* $5.6 million per day in week 1, when tickets were sold on only three days.

* $4.1 million per day in week 2.

* $3.2 million per day in week 3.

* $2.7 million per day in week 4, which includes sales through late Saturday.

The lottery plans...

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
