Just like July was a great month for us with instant ticket sales, August was, too. Our August instant ticket sales of $113.8 million set an August record. Our total sales of $203.72 million for the month ranked as the third-highest month in Ohio Lottery history.
The instant ticket sales come largely because our instant ticket manager, Ron Fornaro, obviously does a great job. But along with him are a couple hundred other hard-working Lottery types who believe in our product and our mission. And behind us are thousands of Lottery retailers all over the state who work hard to help us tell our story.
It’s you, our players, who are real stars in this equation. More sales equal more winners, and the biggest winners of all are Ohio schools. Thanks for doing your part. Good luck!
