Thank you for this article on advertising for the lottery. As a commercial print model and on-camera actor, I have in the past appeared in several ads for the Wisconsin (USA)lottery and for casinos in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and in Indiana. That was before I became addicted to slot machine gambling. ... The images we see, especially for casino gambling advertisement is nothing like the reality. In the ads, we see nicely dressed women and men, most of them white (I'm an African American woman), with really great smiles, having a wonderful time. The reality is quite the opposite, as you well know if you've visited a casino lately.
