With the last month of the fiscal year still to be reported, sales have already surpassed the $1.20bn recorded in the full fiscal year 2020.
FY21’s sales figures are 35.3%, or $379.4m ahead of the same period in FY2020, and $284.0m or 24.3% ahead of the operator’s budget.
Scratch-off tickets continued to be the lottery’s biggest driver of increased sales, bringing in $880.6m by the end of the period. This puts scratch-off sales 34.1% ahead of the previous year-to-date.
Online instant play games brought in a further $105.5m, and total ilottery sales were up $84.4m from the same period last year. Instant play games are now the operator’s third largest product in terms of sales, after scratch-off games and Pick 3.
