Mass Lottery to announce record sales

June 30, 2015, 4:13 pm ET

The Massachusetts Lottery is expected to break a sales record this year for the fourth year in a row, the lottery executive director said Tuesday.

As of Saturday, the lottery had tallied $4.973 billion in sales, said Beth Bresnahan. She said the final sales total would be just shy of $5 billion when the fiscal year ends at midnight tonight.

The lottery posted sales of $4.741 billion in fiscal 2012, $4.85 billion in fiscal 2013, and $4.863 billion in fiscal 2014.

Profit this year is expected to reach $935.4 million, said Bresnahan. "We are on track to make that," she said.

If you played Virginia's Cash 5 lottery game back in January, you may want to check your pockets, bags and glove compartment, because one lucky person is holding on to a winning lottery ticket that is set to expire soon.

A lucky winner purchased a ticket for the Cash 5 night drawing at the 7-Eleven at 9807 Cockrell Road in Manassas on Jan. 12, 2015. The ticket turned out to be a $100,000 winner, but no one has come forward to claim the prize, Virginia Lottery said Monday.

The chances of winning the $100,000 top prize are 1 in 278,256.

Arkansas Lottery sales director to resign

June 30, 2015, 10:11 am ET

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery's director of sales was given a choice Monday — resignation or termination.

Lottery Director Bishop Woosley confirmed Monday that Robert Stebbins, who has been with the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery as the group's director of sales since its start, is no longer working for the program.

Woosley said early Monday night that Stebbins was told he'd be fired if he didn't quit, but Woosley said he doesn't know which option Stebbins will take.

There was no answer at a phone number listed under Stebbins' name Monday.

Although ticket sales climbed after its 2009 launch, revenues and scholarship proceeds have dropped each of the past three years.
