Lottery Commission Votes to Add Monitor-Style Games

Lamberth said she believes the monitor games could be "a game changer" for the lottery's revenue picture. The measure passed, 7-1.

The panel also approved a measure to lift a ban on advertising with universities in the state.

Woosley argued for the change, saying sales could increase by working out a deal with the University of Arkansas for Razorback-themed instant ticket games. Numerous other state lotteries have similar agreements. He also said advertising during athletic events would provide the opportunity to stress that the lottery funds college scholarships.
