Update: A List of States Where You Can Still Play the Lottery

As more poker sites decide whether they are in or out of the U.S. market (all of the major sites that are in are listed after the jump), now is a good time to examine which states are in or out of the lottery market.

And as with many things in life, there is some good news…and some bad news.

Kh_bodogFirst, the bad news: There are eight states in the union in what we like to call the U-S-and-A that do not have a lottery.

However, there is a silver lining to this: lotteries are still hotter in most states than Grey’s Anatomy babe Katherine Heigl (at right, supporting one of those illicit wagering and poker sites, Bodog, which means she’s a naughty little girl…so naughty). In fact, there are 42 states that currently DO have lotteries right now (and guess WCP readers who are "inside the beltway," Washington DC has one too!).

To this, we gotta say: Fuck yeah, state lotteries. Fuck yeah.

Anyway, for you scourge of society vagrants who still want to play online poker, check out the sites that are still accepting U.S. players, courtesy of 2+2…as well as some more pics of Katherine Heigl…cause she’s naughty. So naughty.
