Arizona Lottery has record-breaking sales year

PHOENIX — The Arizona Lottery said this year marks the most tickets sold
in its 33-year history.

Officials said Thursday that the Lottery generated more than $720 million in
sales this fiscal year, a 4.5 percent bump over the previous year.

Lottery beneficiaries have received more than $175 million in net funding over the past year and the revenues for winners have risen 33 percent in the past five years.

Officials said retailers for the Arizona Lottery earned a record amount of $48
million in commissions during the year.

They said the increase in revenue is because of the popularity of Scratchers
tickets.

Arizona Lottery revenue helps support several programs in education, health,
business development and the environment.
