THE IOWA LOTTERY HAS REGAINED MOMENTUM FROM SALES LOST DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE PANDEMIC LAST YEAR. LOTTERY SPOKESPERSON, MARY NEUBAUER, SAYS THIS FISCAL YEAR IS ALREADY WELL PAST EXPECTATIONS

LOTTO1 OC….BUDGETED :05

THE FISCAL YEAR STARTED JUNE 30TH AND SALES THROUGH FEBRUARY ARE 292-POINT-EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS. NEUBAUER SAYS THOSE SALES MEAN MORE MONEY GOING BACK TO THE STATE.

LOTTO2 OC….PROJECTIONS :07

THE STATE HAS RECEIVED A LITTLE MORE THAN 69 MILLION DOLLARS ($69.2) IN PROCEEDS THROUGH FEBRUARY.

SCRATCH TICKET SALES HAVE CONTINUED TO BE ON ANOTHER RECORD SALES PACE — WITH MORE THAN 200 MILLION DOLLARS IN SALES THROUGH FEBRUARY.

NEUBAUER SAYS THAT’S A NEARLY 23 PERCENT INCREASE (22.5) COMPARED TO LAST YEAR.

LOTTO3 OC….EVER SINCE :17

PART OF THE REASON FOR THE CONTINUED STRONG SALES OF SCRATCH TICKETS HAS BEEN THE CONTINUED ACCESS TO GROCERY STORES DURING THE PANDEMIC.

THEY HAVE CONSISTENTLY BEEN TOP SELLERS OF IOWA LOTTERY PRODUCTS.

LOTTO4 OC….THEIR STAPLES :18

NEUBAUER SAYS THE IOWA LOTTERY WILL LIKELY SEE THE IMPACT ON SALES AS THINGS GET BACK TO MORE NORMAL OPERATIONS.

THE UPDATED SALES FIGURES WERE PRESENTED TO THE IOWA LOTTERY BOARD DURING THEIR MEETING TUESDAY IN CLIVE.
