The Daily Progress in Charlottesville reported Thursday that lottery sales totaled more than $221 million for the month. That total includes more than $117 million in sales of scratch-off tickets.

Lottery sales in Virginia for the fiscal year are on pace to exceed 2018’s record of $606 million. The fiscal year runs July 1 to June 30.

Profits from the Virginia lottery are spent on K-12 education in the state.
