Story: Is Lottery Marketing Predatory?


After over a year of nagging, fighting, and (frayed) patience, the documents we requested regarding the Massachusetts lottery have finally arrived - thanks to your support! Read the full documents yourself (over 400 pages, mostly of PowerPoint documents), and let us know if you find anything interesting.

Already, numerous reporters have asked about and just started poking at them, and we'd love to hear what you find.

Thanks again for supporting transparency on this important issue.
