I thought about this as well when I read the current proposal.
In Germany there are lot's of shops that are named as being primarily
for selling lottery tickets, but looking into it they are usually
selling the common combination of newspapers and magazines, tobacco and
so on. The lottery is often nothing else than the most prominent ad at
the store.
Therefore most often they objectively don't qualify for "shops whose
main purpose is selling lottery tickets".
