In November, a hearing before a House subcommittee delved into concerns that federally sanctioned online gambling could “cannibalize” state lottery revenue. A lottery director from New Hampshire testified its lottery and casinos tend to draw from the same customer pool, but poker players tend to be much younger than the lottery’s demographic of 35 to 60 years old. Therefore, cannibalization might be a more relevant question 20 years down the road.
