NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Lottery celebrated 10 years in business in the Volunteer State by unveiling a new logo and announcing another record quarter.

The Lottery to-date has raised a total of more than $2.91 billion for education-related programs.

The corporation celebrated this milestone anniversary Tuesday with a short program at the Lottery's headquarters in Nashville.

During the program a new logo was unveiled and retailer partners with a Board Resolution were honored, and launched a series of TV spots paying tribute to the HOPE Scholars who have benefitted from the Lottery's record breaking performance.

"For 10 years now, the Lottery has enjoyed fantastic support from Tennesseans throughout the state, which explains our solid and consistent gains year after year. "Be it from our many players, our network of 5,000 retailers, or the legion of scholarship recipients and their families, the response to the Lottery from the first day has been overwhelming. As we enter the next decade, we're dedicated to making sure the years ahead prove just as fun for our players and as productive for the good causes we serve," said Rebecca Hargrove, Lottery President and CEO.

The Lottery continued its strong performance with a new record set for second quarter sales and proceeds for education. In this time period alone, Oct. 1, 2013 through Dec. 31, 2013, the Lottery posted $85 million raised for state education programs and an impressive $352.7 million in sales, a jump of $19.7 million or 5.9%, from the same period last year.

While the Lottery reports on a fiscal year basis, here are some details about the Lottery's first 10 years (Jan. 20, 2004 through Jan. 19, 2014):

  • More than $2.91 billion raised for education
  • More than $11.2 billion in gross ticket sales
  • Nearly $6.8 billion in prizes won by players — roughly $2.1 million distributed every day
  • More than $733 million paid in retailer commissions
  • 131 winning tickets worth $1 million or more, including the recent $61 million Mega Millions jackpot won by a Nashville resident

TN lottery seems to be doing something right. If only the organization would end computerized drawings.

It's a futile effort.

              What the hell did she need a new logo for?

              And it looks like the old logo to me anyway, I don't see any difference, not that I ever studied the logo anyway; there ain't no logos on any of my playslips and the logos on the tickets are so light you can't make 'em out anyway. Who cares about a stupid logo? 

              I wonder who made out on that deal? I wonder whose brother in law got the printing contract? I wonder whose close friend conducted the study and focus group to decide which logo would be best for business? Cuz we all know that tobaccy chewin' hillbillies won't buy scratchers unless they have a snazzy logo.

              Screw that logo and give us real ball drawings, Dragon Lady.

              If you got rid of the fake computer drawings you'd really see profits increase when me and all my hillbilly friends stopped going out of state to play the lottery.

                  They already use computers.

                  I would play more if it were real ball drawings too.

                  I play even less now that there are 3 draws per day. Just don't like it.

                  Haven't noticed the new logo anywhere but I don't see why it was needed.

                  Either way, congrats on 10 years, tn lotto!

                      The only reason for so much money collected is nothing is give to the players.Look at the payouts usa.You think you have so bad in your state try to play here.You will nothing on draws or scratch offs.Wish there was something we could do about it but we cant.Just dont play.

                          Don't see how anyone could like this. Except for the name, they did'nt mention anything that Tenn is known for.
