Lottery sales in the US declined 2% in the third quarter of 2008 on a same store year on year comparison according to La Fleur’s magazine, which tracks the lottery business.  This is significant because historically lottery sales in the US have been recession-proof.

    I hope it doesn’t have an effect on us here, it pays for my rent basically.

    I was told by an American customer (who loves our games) that the games are different in a way that escapes me (tip of my tongue), that makes it harder to win. This might be a factor in their decline?
