Wisconsin Lottery Director Mike Edmonds announced Friday that sales for the fiscal year ending on June 30 topped out at nearly $569 million. The previous record set in 2013 was nearly $566 million.
Edmonds says the record marks another good year for taxpayers, business owners and lottery players in the state. The lottery says the nearly $569 million in sales generated $160 million in property tax relief for Wisconsin home owners.
Sales of the instant games increased, while lotto sales slightly decreased.
