World lotteries? !<br /><br /> Why would any country approve such a concept? Hundreds of groups, mostly charities, apply for and are often declined lottery licenses in their own jurisdictions. Do you really believe that Montana will approve a lottery for a Mars fund when it turns down one for the Cancer Society? That the U.K. or France will see lottery money leave the country for a U.S. based Mars fund? The reason most states limit the amount of lotteries is because there is a limited pool of lottery users. A dollar for a ticket spent on a lotery raising money to build a new sports arena is a dollar less spent on a lottery to raise money for a children's hospital.<br /><br /> What planet (not yet Mars) are you living on?
