ATLANTA — The Georgia lottery’s online presence now allows citizens to figuratively throw their money away from any location with an internet connection. The expanded functionality promises to expand the lottery’s reach to include the financially daft who lack the time to travel to a physical lottery location.
“The internet is a wonderful thing, in this instance,” said Shay Sterr, lottery spokesman. “Too long we’ve been confined to fleecing people who regularly shop at convenience stores. Now we can benefit from anyone’s lack of acumen.”
