Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2015
Fiscal Year 15 was yet another record-breaker for the Kentucky Lottery
We’re pleased to report FY15 proved to be another record-breaker in Kentucky Lottery history.
Sales for the period were $899.1 million (including $12.2million in free tickets). This breaks the old sales record established in FY14 of $858.8 million by 4.7%.
Those sales led to record-breaking profits returned to the Commonwealth. A total of $236.1 million was transferred to the Commonwealth, breaking the old record of $226.1 million. We paid record retailer commissions of $55.9 million.
And our players benefited as well, with a record $556.3 million in prizes awarded.
For 17 out of the past 22 years, we've broken sales records. We've also broken dividend transfer records in 17 years out of the past 22. And we continue to work toward sales and dividend improvement for FY16. That's what the Commonwealth expects from us, and that's what college students receiving our scholarship and grant funds expect from us.
