Pennsylvania Lottery sales hit $5.89 billion


The Pennsylvania Lottery said that it has generated full year revenues of more than $5.89 billion up by 0.5%. 

For the 2022-2023 fiscal year the lottery generated more than $1.1 billion. Profits from the lottery go towards senior citizen programs in the state including prescription assistance and property tax and rent rebates. 

This year’s profit came from the lottery selling a total of $4.98 billion in traditional games, which include Scratch-Off tickets and Draw Games, such as Powerball and Mega Millions.  

The lottery’s online games, which launched in 2018 also generated $922.7 million in sales.  

“This fiscal year was the second-best for total sales in the lottery’s more than 50-year history,” said Secretary of Revenue Pat Browne. “The Pennsylvania Lottery takes great pride in the fact that it’s the only lottery in the U.S. that dedicates all of its proceeds to benefit older residents. The lottery is already hard at work looking for new and innovative ways to continue responsibly generating funds for programs that so many older Pennsylvanians rely on each day.”
