JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Profits from Missouri Lottery ticket sales in October were sent to the Lottery Proceeds Fund for public education today. The transfer of $39,765,047 is the Lottery’s second-highest monthly transfer to date, bringing the total for FY19 to more than $141 million.
“Sales were strong last month, thanks to high and record-breaking jackpots for Powerball and Mega Millions,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “These record jackpots are a lot of fun for our players and, at the same time, they allow us to increase our proceeds for education.”
Since Missouri Lottery sales started in 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $6 billion for the state and public education.
