Georgia Gambling and Lotteries Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
Gambling and state lotteries have always been controversial topics in many states. On one hand, both institutions provide a sizable chunk of revenue for state coffers without raising general consumer taxes. However, there are often fears of corruption with casinos and the problems that come with gambling addictions. Georgia's gambling laws are quite strict and don't allow any kind of casinos, card houses, or animal races (dogs or horses). In fact, the only kinds of gambling allowed in Georgia are raffles for charitable organizations. However, the state operates an official lottery, intended to fund education.
