Lottery Sees Highest Yearly Profits To Date



Thank you, retailers!

With your help, Missouri Lottery profits for FY19 were the highest in the Lottery's 33-year history. We're proud to say that profits reached an all-time high of $346.7 million!

Our retailers were vital in making this happen. As an integral part of the Missouri Lottery team, we appreciate the work that goes into education your staff about our products and equipment, as well as your dedication to selling our games and publicizing our promotions.

There were several factors that contributed to the Lottery's record year, including high sales for Powerball and Mega Millions, thanks to higher-than-average jackpot sizes. This included a $1.54 billion Mega Millions jackpot — the second-highest jackpot ever offered in the United States. Scratchers, Pick 3 and Pick 4 also had a record-breaking year.

Thank you again for being our partners in raising money to support education in our state. Remember, only Missouri Lottery-branded games and machines support Missouri education, so look for the Lottery logo.
