Georgia Lottery Denies Payouts To Hindus

The Hindu and Indo-American community has reported severely high rates of gambling prize denials by the Georgia Lottery, which allegedly withholds millions from scratch-off games. Players are urging the Governor to launch a full-scale investigation after Atlanta Journal-Constitution's article was published, stating that people with the common last name, Patel, make up even 23% of the denials.

The surname originates from Gujarati language, and it means 'headsman' or 'chieftain', usually related to village settlements. Besides India's current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, the country's iconic activist and leader of the Independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi, was also born in the Gujarat state.

Thankfully, a Hindu statesman Rajan Zed contacted the press and urged Georgia Lottery to immediately revise its policies and values. The Corporation is overseen by the state's government, since its yearly revenues exceed over $1 billion USD! Zed also implied that the Lottery's statute includes the country's core principles such as honesty, trustworthiness, respectfulness, fairness and morality.

The President of Universal Society of Hinduism is concerned that such high percentage of people with the last name Patel are denied by the Lottery, whose net sales surpass staggering amounts, measured in billions of dollars! It seems bizarre, that such an organization would deny prizes due to some ethnicity or cultural issues, adds Zed.

Georgia Lottery was founded in 1992, and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Its current president and CEO, Debbie Alford, has previously worked as the director of the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget. She was appointed in October 2012 as CEO, and settled for a salary of $300,000 USD per year - 93 percent more from what she was paid as the state's budget director.
