Terry and Madonna Mudd

Terry and MaDonna Mudd show off their Virginia Lottery winnings earlier this year.

State officials say the Virginia Lottery brought in a record $650 million in profits in the last fiscal year.

Gov. Ralph Northam’s office announced the figures for the fiscal year that ended June 30, saying in a press release Wednesday that sales reached over $2.29 billion.

Lottery profits are used to fund K-12 education programs.

The lottery, which operates on revenue from the sale of lottery products, not tax dollars, says operating expenses were around 5% of total sales.
