The bar-owner guest is very evasive with his answers. Bars and restaurants are making very good money for basically renting out space for lottery machines. If it wasn't profitable, these establishments would just no longer have the machines in their space. I do not believe the lottery commission was established to keep bars and restaurants in business. Originally state-sponsored gambling was only passed by the voters because the money was supposed to go to education. Now it is syphened off to many other causes, parks, salmon rehabilitation, and keeping bars and restaurants profitible. I believe we should return to the basics, the lottery money should be used for funding education, as it was intended.
