The Arkansas Lottery
, thanks in part to a good June, finished the state fiscal year that ended June 30 ahead of budget projections.
The lottery had budgeted $80.9 million in net revenue,
but made $85.277 million. June alone came in $900,000 over projections.
Lottery profits go to college scholarships. The outcome this year meant about $3,000 more was transferred to scholarship support than was transferred last year, in keeping with generally
flat performance by the lottery over its life beginning in 2009.
