He says the amount of money returned to the state is down slightly.

Scratch tickets were the Lottery’s first product and he says they’ve been doing well this year.

The Iowa Lottery has done several promotions surrounding scratch tickets and he says that has helped boost sales. Strawn says the large jackpots in the Powerball and Mega Millions games will help push ahead March sales.
