But sales went up in March, the end of the first quarter and May, the second month of the second quarter, it was noted in the same report.

There was a continuing decline of on-line lotto sales, said Ms. Yamashita Japinan, chief lottery operations officer who attributed the slump to illegal gambling like "jueteng" and poor telecommunication systems in some areas.

She said illegal gambling operations like jueteng poses a threat to on-line lotto because some people are used to it and it seems easy for them to place bets in this kind of game.

Sometimes bogged down telecommunication system is a big contributor to the decline of sale of lotto ticket, she added. (PIA-Isabela) [top]
