$30 lottery ticket, Wis. Lottery considering it

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - We know that Wisconsin Lottery players will buy $20 scratch-off tickets – but will they spend $30 on a single game?

The state Revenue Department has told the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee that the lottery wants to offer a $30 game sometime after the state’s new fiscal year begins on July first.

It said that 75% of the sales would go to winners – but the report did not say what type of payouts there might be.

Revenue officials also say $30 scratch-off games appear to be doing well in other states.

The Wisconsin Lottery is coming off a record-setting sales year with sales of over $547-million, due in part to a record jackpot for Mega Millions.

Reports indicate that the lottery expects slightly lower sales figures of around $540-million for the current year that ends June 30
