Lottery Tickets NOT appropriate holiday gifts for minors
Considering scratch or lotto tickets as the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer for that someone special? If that person is under the age of 18, the South Dakota Lottery and the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) remind you that lotto or scratch tickets are not the appropriate gift for them. You must be 18 years old or older to play such games in South Dakota. The South Dakota Lottery is pleased to once again participate in the NCPG's annual campaign against purchasing lottery tickets as holiday gifts for children. For more information about the 2013 Holiday Campaign, visit the NCPG website. Give responsibly - lottery tickets aren't child's play.
