MADISON (WKOW) – State revenue officials say they want to add $30 scratch-off lottery tickets to Wisconsin.
The Department of Revenue wants to add the ticket after the new fiscal year starts July 1 because they are doing so well in other states.
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 got to winners.
The state lottery had a record-setting year ending June 30 with sales of more than $547 million. According to Wisconsin State Journal, lottery sales are projected to decrease slightly in the next fiscal year to about $540 million.
