Too young for the lottery?

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Lottery says Shawn Johnson is too young for ads.

That's because the West Des Moines native is too young gamble. The Iowa Lottery says despite the popularity of the olympic gold-medalist and Dancing With the Stars winner, Johnson is only 17 and she won't appear in television or radio ads for the lottery.
 
The Iowa Lottery is for 21 and over, and they don't want to give the impression to minors that it's ok to buy lottery tickets.  Johnson has appeared in ads for the Hy-Vee grocery store chain, Ortega, McDonald's and other businesses.
