Is it legal for a doctors office in florida legally set up a terminal for the hatian lottery ?

Hello Jacustomer,

This is illegal. You can see the Florida law as to gambling here:

849.08 Gambling.--

Whoever plays or engages in any game at cards, keno, roulette, faro or other game of chance, at any place, by any device whatever, for money or other thing of value, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.


But that's not all, since it is a violation of Federal law to sell or offer foreign lottery tickets on line. You can read more than you'll ever want to know about the Federal Wire Act here.

If you want to report him you could contact the police departement that serves the community where his office is, or the DA. You could also contact the FBI. Here's where you can find their field offices and contact information.

If you don't want to go in and speak to anyone, but want to be in a position just to leave an anonymous tip, If you're afraid to do that directly to the police and the FBI, you can call First Coast Crime Stoppers and not have to leave your name.
