Lottery Sales Hit Records With Month To Go In Fiscal Year

Clive, Iowa — Iowa Lottery sales have already hit records for the fiscal year with the June numbers still to be added to the total.

Lottery CEO, Matt Strawn, gave an update to the Lottery Board yesterday (Thursday).

He says the proceeds from Iowa Lottery sales returned to the state are more than 101 million dollars, which is up 12 percent compared to last year.

The fiscal year ends June 30th and a record for sales is assured.

Strawn says a couple of billion dollar lotto game jackpots and more drawing days helped increase lotto game sales. He says there were also some internal actions taken to help.

Powerball sales are up nearly 26 percent, MegaMillions sales are up more than 24 percent and Lotto America Sales were up more than 56 percent through May.
