Lotto Sales Are Brisk

(RICHMOND) — Strong lotto numbers in Virginia.

Virginia’s state-owned lottery program had its best year on record with profits topping $600 million for the first time. Gov. Northam’s office says the lottery had a record $2.14 billion in sales in fiscal 2018.

Players won some $1.3 billion in prizes and 48 tickets won prizes of $1 million or more.
