Quick Draw—which has already been rapidly increased in New York—would be available even more widely under Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget proposal today.
Last year, Quick Draw restrictions were lifted so places that don’t sell food could have it. This year, Cuomo wants to lift the restriction so it can be available at stores that are smaller than 2,500 square feet.
It would be available at any store that sells lottery games, according to the budget proposal today.
Cuomo estimated the state would take in about $24 million a year under the proposal.
Quick Draw had struggled in recent years, but the increase in availability has led revenue to soar.
Quick Draw revenue grew 14 percent last year, up $67 million, according to the state Lottery Division.
