Pennsylvania Lottery officials announced, that the Lottery generated a profit of nearly $1.2 billion to benefit older Pennsylvanians.

This is the 11th consecutive year the Lottery has generated more than $1 billion for senior programs, which include property tax/rent rebates, free transportation, and prescription assistance. 

The money generated this year will benefit senior Pennsylvanians during the 2021-22 fiscal year. 

“That means Pennsylvania seniors will continue to have access a host of programs and services that are funded by the Lottery," said PA Lottery Executive Director, Drew Syitko. "We are extremely proud of our commitment and mission to continue funding the programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians.” 

This year's profit was driven by the Lottery selling a total of $5 billion in traditional games, such as Scratch-Offs and the Mega Millions.
