The Virginia Lottery Board says that sales this year are expected to be the highest they've seen in the agency's eleven year history. Just last week a federal study on gambling found that it could be damaging to individuals and communities.
The study suggested reforms such as raising the legal age from 18 to 21 and controlling advertising. State lottery officials say the industry here is different.
