Missouri Lottery Makes March Education Fund Payment

Profits from Missouri Lottery ticket sales in March, totaling $29.7 million, were sent to the Lottery Proceeds Fund for public education Friday.  The monthly transfer of $29,701,183 brings the total for fiscal year 2018 to more than $258 million.

Since Missouri Lottery sales started in 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $5.9 billion for the state and public education. Annual Lottery proceeds comprise about 4 percent of the state’s funding for public education – an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.
