Maine Revised Statutes

§403. Statement of purpose

This compact is enacted to implement the operation of Tri-state Lotto for the purpose of raising additional revenue for each of the party states. Tri-state Lotto is not intended to replace any existing lottery games in the party states but, rather, to be run in addition to those games. Tri-state Lotto tickets will be sold in each of the party states and processed in a central area to be determined by the commission. Not less than 50% of the gross sales from each state will be aggregated in a common prize pool, and operating costs will be charged proportionally, according to sales, to the party states. The remaining revenues generated within each state remain in that particular state. [2013, c. 352, §4 (AMD).]
