West Virginia Video Lottery

By  | 

It appears a lot of people are spending big bucks on video lottery in the Mountain State.

According to LaFleur magazine, nearly $1.4-billion was spent on video lottery in 2007.

That ranks second in the world to China's $1.8-billion.

A spokesperson for the lottery said a lot of the money came from out of state tourists visiting one of the four race tracks.

The trade magazine only looked at state run lotteries, meaning West Virginia isn't being compared with the private sector gaming, like Las Vegas.
