CAEG, Inc opposes the use of Debit Card Transactions for lottery purchases. We believe that could result in financial harm to Wisconsin Citizens who play the lottery, many of whom are currently targeted through lottery advertising and email lists.

Comments
The WGA is opposed to the bill because retailers will lose money on the sale of lottery tickers using a debit card. Retailers will have to be made whole on debit card transaction fees and not carry debt from the sale.
