Ohio Lottery Has Record Sales, $803M For Schools
The Ohio Lottery announces public schools in the state will get $803 million in profits from a record-high $2.8 billion in lottery sales during the 2013 fiscal year.
The profits are transferred to a fund supporting public K-12 education. The amount transferred this year is about $32 million more than last fiscal year.
A statement from director Dennis Berg says the lottery is especially proud of drawing a record profit amid increased competition with the state’s four voter-approved casinos and the storefront sweepstakes parlors known as Internet cafes.
Lottery officials say revenue was boosted by slots-like video lottery terminals that opened at two horse racing tracks. The so-called racinos are in Columbus and North Randall. Five more are scheduled to open around Ohio by the end of 2014.
