Lottery Spending Up, Casino Down

KSAL StaffJanuary 14, 2015

Kansans spent more than a million dollars more last year to buy lottery tickets than they did the previous year.

But revenues were down at two of the state’s three casinos.

The Kansas Lottery’s report to the Legislature Tuesday shows sales of lottery tickets totaled $245.7 million last year. That is the second-highest amount in the 27-year history of the lottery.

About half of the money from ticket sales was paid out as prizes. The lottery transferred $74.3 million to the state after paying commissions to retailers.

Revenues declined at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane and the Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City. The Hollywood Casino in Kansas City, Kansas, was the only one to report an uptick in revenues.
