Korea lottery market

The Korean lottery market has rapidly grown since 2002 with the introduction of the online lottery, posting w4.23 trillion (US$3,527.6million, US$1=w1,200) in sales in 2003, with government policies to stabilize the market and curb reckless gambling, however, lottery sales have remained at approximately w2.4 trillion in recent years.
Since lottery tickets went on sale for the first time in 1947, printed lottery tickets have been dominant in Korea. But from 2003, the Korean lottery market has become disproportionately lopsided toward the online lottery (lotto 6/45)
