PA Lottery Proceeds Top $1 Billion to Benefit Senior Citizens
The Pennsylvania Lottery recently reported record sales of $3.8 billion in the 2013-14 fiscal year, a 2.7 percent increase over last year. More than $1 billion in net revenue was dedicated to programs benefiting older Pennsylvanians, bringing the total investment in those programs to $24.7 billion.
The Pennsylvania Lottery is the only lottery in the nation that exclusively targets all of its proceeds to programs for older residents. While benefits for each county are being calculated for this year, the most recent statistics for the 2012-13 fiscal year show that Berks and Schuylkill counties benefited from more than $50 million.
