The South Dakota Lottery System Amendment, also known as Amendment E, was on the November 8, 1994 ballot in South Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure allowed the state lottery system to continue operation in response to a Supreme Court decision that ruled the video lottery system was a game of chance rather than a lottery game, and was therefore prohibited. The measure also prohibited state-wide slot machines.[1][2]
