Georgia lottery has a serious problem with ticket aggregators

Previously, I worked with Lawrence Mower from the Palm Beach Post, Philip Stark from UC Berkeley, and Richard Arratia from USC to expose ticket aggregators in Florida, and since then similar problems have been observed in Massachusetts and Ohio.  But these are topped by the situation in Georgia, where one can easily find more than 100 people committing this crime, see today’s story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The calculations I did for this news story were simple and not at all subtle, but they were enough to make the point, because the crime of ticket aggregation is truly widespread in Georgia.  The calculations we did for the Florida story were much subtler; you can see the details in our paper.
