Kansas Lottery Sales Up

KSCB News - July 19, 2012 11:23 am

The Kansas Lottery posted a record sales year in the fiscal year ending June 30, topping $244 million on the strength of record-setting, multi-state jackpots.

Lottery Executive Director Dennis Wilson says the agency will transfer $72 million to the state general fund, which is the highest amount transferred to the fund since the lottery began in 1987. The previous high was $70 million in fiscal year 2011.

One of those record jackpots was the $656 million pot for Mega Millions in March. One of the three winning tickets was sold in Kansas.
