TN Lottery Reports Record Sales

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Education Lottery Corp. reports a record $1.19 billion in total sales for its fiscal year.
The agency said Monday the sales are up 4.2 percent over the previous year.
Lottery officials said they transferred a record high $293.5 million to education programs in Tennessee, up $4.6 million over last year’s previous record.
Officials said new products and emphasis on customer service helped the lottery counter a sluggish economy.
