Missouri Lottery Generates $24.8 Million in Monthly Profits for Education

May 21, 2020 | Lottery News

JEFFERSON CITY, MO — Profits from Missouri Lottery ticket sales in April have been sent to the Lottery Proceeds Fund for public education.

The transfer of $24,896,634 brings the total for FY20, which began July 1, 2019, to more than $278.5 million.

Prior to each fiscal year, the Lottery averages the most recent five years’ profits for a “benchmark” and increases that amount by 1% to arrive at a prudent goal for the next fiscal year.
