$30 Scratch-Off Lottery Ticket Likely

Posted: Friday, March 1, 2013 -- 7:14 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State revenue officials say sales of $30 scratch-off lottery tickets are doing well in other states, so why not add it in Wisconsin?

The Department of Revenue wants to add the ticket after the new fiscal year starts July 1. The department's report to the Legislature's budget committee doesn't say what the payout on a $30 ticket would be, but notes that about 75 percent of sales would go to winners.

The state lottery had a record-setting year ending June 30 with sales of more than $547 million. The State Journal reports lottery sales are projected to decrease slightly in the next fiscal year to about $540 million.
