Live draws bring the excitement of the Florida Lottery’s Terminal games to life for audiences across Florida and nationwide.

Twenty states divert a slice of casino and slots parlors revenue to help boost horse racing prize money, according to the American Gaming Association.

Supreme Court precedent Rhode Island employed a similar legal strategy to win a 2009 U.S. Supreme Court decision against the Narragansett Indian Tribe, which had sought to build casinos on its territory. What's different is that Rhode Island challenged the U.S. Secretary of Interior's decision in federal court under a claim through the Administrative Procedure Act, a law that allows federal courts to review agency decisions, the appeals court ruled. Alabama did not raise an APA claim in its filing. Even if Alabama raised the claim, it would have been too late due to the six-year statute of limitation on all APA challenges, the appeals court ruled. The last chance Alabama had to raise a claim about the final land transfer to the Poarch tribe ended by 2002. As such, the Poarch tribe enjoys the benefits of tribal immunity from state control, according to the appeals court.

A national advertising campaign for Powerball® is about to debut that will give a new look to a highly recognizable but utilitarian part of the game: the six balls used in its twice-weekly drawings. Rather than displaying numbers as they normally do, the five white balls and one red ball will feature words spelling out fun messages in the new ads. .
