Kansas Lottery sales decline in 2009

Kansas LotteryKansas Lottery: Kansas Lottery sales decline in 2009

Kansas Lottery sales were down 2.6 percent during the fiscal year that ended June 30, the state agency reported Wednesday.

Sales for the year finished at $230.5 million, down from $236.6 million during the 2008 fiscal year. The lottery's biggest drops were in its Super Kansas Cash and Keno products, which fell 15 percent and 9 percent, respectively.

"Tough economic conditions have been a factor in decreased sales, as well as the lack of big jackpots in Powerball and Super Kansas Cash," said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten in a news release. "We also lost ground in Keno this year, primarily due to some of our Keno locations going nonsmoking and losing patrons because of that."

The lottery says it generated $68.2 million in revenue to the state over the year.

Doesn't help that it takes FOREVER for the Kansas Cash to be hit.  And we RARELY (maybe 4 times since we started) win the jackpot for Powerball.  Even the lower tiers aren't really hit in Kansas. 

I'm not even sure why I play anymore.

 

I'm going to keep trying.  You know the second I don't play, we'll win.  lol

No No

Don't cry over spilled milk.  Go milk another cow!!
