Lottery Games in Alabama

No state lottery is available in Alabama, though some counties provide smaller local lotteries. Lottery gaming in the south has never recovered from the infamous Louisiana Lottery from 1868 until 1895.

Organizers of the Louisiana Lottery and state politicians in Louisiana were found guilty of bribery, because the money was so big. Federal laws against selling lottery tickets across state lines were written, because citizens in many other states, especially nearby southern states, played the Louisiana Lottery.
