Lottery Advertising Examples

State lotteries are exempt from truth-in-advertising laws. You can read the exemption here. Below are examples of dozens of lottery television advertisements, many of which take full-advantage of this exemption. It's time to end this deceptive and predatory advertising not only by removing the exemption, but to stop the practice of lottery advertising altogether. As you watch these ads, consider they represent the daily voice of government to most Americans and their purpose is to encourage citizens to lose money, ultimately pushing people into deeper debt. Government used to run ad campaigns encouraging people to save money through savings bonds with messages like "Invest in America" such as this one starring John Wayne.
