TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas has legalized the sale of state lottery tickets through vending machines, and theyre expected to start popping up in stores and gas stations next year.
Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer this week signed a bill sought by lottery officials to authorize vending-machine sales. Most states already allow such vending machines, and Kansas Lottery officials see them as a way to boost sales.
Lottery Director Terry Presta said Friday that annual sales eventually could rise by up to $100 million.
