The Tennessee Education Lottery continues their record-breaking kick-off to the new fiscal year which began July 1. 

Total sales for July and August are 9.3% ahead of the same period for the last fiscal year. 

Sales for both July and August were the highest for each of those months since the Lottery began selling tickets Jan. 20, 2004.

The increase in sales for the fiscal year has been driven primarily by instant ticket sales and the large jackpots for Powerball and Mega Millions, according to the Tennessee Lottery.
“Our continued growth, year-over-year since inception, is great news for education in Tennessee,” said Rebecca Hargrove, Lottery President and CEO. “We remain committed to our record-breaking success and are proud to be a valuable resource for the education programs we fund.”
