That in the opinion of Iowa lottery commissioner de Stanek is the result of a meeting of lottery officials in new York this week. Quot six months ago the possibility of an interstate lotto Wasny to even being discussed a he said Friday after returning from the meeting. Quot i think now the possibility is being seriously discussed and Stanek said lottery directors who attended the meeting have set up committees to explore several questions including what the design of an interstate lotto game should be and How to handle problems such As differences in lottery accounting systems accountability a governing body for an interstate lotto and liability for errors. Stanek who was named to the committee on lotto game design expects additional meetings and Telephone discussions in the next month. He cautioned that there Are numerous problems in setting up an interstate lotto. Quot every state has some kind of obstacle. Some can be overcome. Some May not be overcome. Some May decide it May not be Worth it a he said. For example some lottery states need changes in their lottery statutes to allow them to participate in an interstate lotto. Given those problems he said its unrealistic to expect an interstate lotto operation to materialize this Calendar year or Early in 1987. Quot its not something Iowa necessarily will be ready to do in the very near future with a Large number of states. We possibly could with a smaller number of states except that can to afford to be one of the few left out of interstate lotto a Stanek said. Fourteen lotteries have expressed at least some interest in an interstate lotto. Besides Iowa they Are new York Pennsylvania Illinois Michigan new Jersey Missouri Maryland Washington state Washington d.c., West Virginia Rhode Island new Hampshire and Delaware. Because lotto games Are run by computers tied together with Telephone lines states done to have to be close together to enable them to run the same lotto game. But Stanek said he might still prefer an interstate lotto with Missouri and Illi Nois because it would be easier to Market a game designed exclusively for midwesterner As opposed to one that would include populations from several sectors of the country. If interstate lotto becomes a reality and Iowa did no to join Stanek said Iowa a stand alone game could be the victim of rising expectations. An interstate lotto would Likely mean much larger jackpots than the Iowa game could offer based on its smaller ticket sales. Quot a few years ago a couple million dollars was a lot of Money. Its still a lot of Money to most people a he said. But As a Jackpot its less attractive after pots of to million have been Given away he noted.
