Washington lottery will again offer multigame tickets
Later this month, lottery players in Washington will again be able to purchase tickets for consecutive games.
State lottery officials recently limited ticket sales to single games as a precaution, given turmoil in the Legislature and a fear that state government might curtail services. If the lottery offices were closed for budgetary reasons, there would be no one to pick the daily keno, lotto and other winning numbers.
Also, the state is modifying compensation for ticket vendors, and those changes are being applied to the state computer system.
Now that some problems in state government have been resolved, consumers will again be able to buy one ticket eligible for several games.
Multigame tickets will be available July 26, according to a customer service representative at the lottery office.
