ANCHORAGE - The Lucky Lotto drawing has been postponed because of slow ticket sales.
The drawing is now scheduled for Feb. 28.
Lucky Times Pull Tabs owner Abe Spicola said the hype over this year's half-million dollar lottery has yet to reach the frenzy of last year's. He hopes Alaskans will catch the fever during the two-month delay.
State law says all games of chance must benefit a charity. For the second year in a row, Spicola's lottery will benefit Standing Together Against Rape, a nonprofit that aims to educate the public about sexual assault.
Last year's outcome generated some controversy when a convicted sex offender won the half-million dollar payout and was assaulted a few days later.
