It’s illegal to run a lottery in Georgia

I guess that law isn’t enforced very well since Georgia has a state lottery.

(a) It shall be unlawful for any person, partnership, firm, corporation, or other entity to
sell, distribute, televise, broadcast, or disseminate any advertisement, television or radio
commercial, or any book, magazine, periodical, newspaper, or other written or printed
matter containing an advertisement or solicitation for participation in any lottery declared
to be unlawful by the laws of this state unless such advertisement, commercial, or
solicitation contains or includes the words ‘void in Georgia’ printed or spoken so as to be
clearly legible or audible to persons viewing or hearing such advertisement, commercial,
or solicitation.
(b) Any person, partnership, firm, corporation, or other entity violating subsection (a) of
this Code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
