Lottery Topped Sales Of $142 Million

The Wisconsin Lottery said it has had its best quarter ever.

The lottery posted sales of just more than $142 million from January through March, the third quarter of the state's fiscal year.

Previously, the fourth quarter of 1995 was the best when sales grew to nearly $140 million.

The lottery has generated $391 million in sales through the first three quarters of the current fiscal year, thanks largely to a record Powerball jackpot won by eight workers at a Nebraska meat-processing plant in February.

Lottery director Michael Edmonds said that year-to-date sales have helped generate an estimated $125 million in tax relief.
