Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Tenn. Lottery transfers nearly $80 million to education

The Tennessee Lottery is giving the state $79.6 million for education today, a record for a single quarter since the lottery began more than two years ago, lottery officials announced.

Since the games' inception, $567 million has been raised for education. Most of that has gone into an education account paying for college scholarships. Of the total, $8.9 million has gone into the after-school program account.

Net sales for the third quarter, Jan. 1-March 31, were $265.9 million, bringing the total so far to close to $1.9 billion.

"We'll continue to keep the games fresh and exciting to continue this momentum," said lottery president and chief executive officer Rebecca Paul in a statement. "It's a great day for Tennessee, and an even better day for its students."

    So far it has came a long way.  I think they would do even better if they offered lotto 5 daily rather than 3 times a week.  I think TN players really enjoy this game.  Maybe even start an instate pick 6.  (If we are lucky)

    How are you going to win if you don't play?

        Fantastic..

        We are going to get preschool next fall.. I think it is wonderful that the four year old children can go to a local school.

        My granddaughter will be joining me at our school....
