Wisconsin Lottery Sales Generate More Than $500 Million


The state Legislative Audit Bureau's report says the lottery provided 133 million dollars in the fiscal year ending June 30th, 2006. That equates to an average property tax credit of 82 dollars.

The audit says total ticket sales have risen 19 percent over the past five fiscal years. The lottery introduced 60 new games in the year in the last fiscal year.

Retailers who sell lottery tickets got four-point-six (M) million dollars in incentives that year, up 15 percent from the previous fiscal year.
