2013 Annual Report Available

By November 1 of each year, the Nebraska Lottery is required by law to deliver its written annual report to the Governor and the Legislature. The report is a public record.

The 2013 Annual Report and Resource Guide (for the fiscal year that began on July 1, 2012, and ended on June 30, 2013) contains a number of notable highlights.

Product Developments

During the fiscal year, the Nebraska Lottery celebrated its 20th anniversary with new games and promotions. The Lucky Summer ‘13 family of Scratch games and second-chance promotion reduced the seasonal drop in Scratch sales during the summer months, and the Last Shot! program resulted in faster inventory turnover and a wider distribution of Scratch games. Enhancements to the multi-state Powerball game resulted in several new Nebraska millionaires.

Strong Sales

Sales of all Nebraska Lottery games (Scratch and Lotto) for the fiscal year totaled $160.8 million.

Beneficiary Fund Contributions

Total contributions to Nebraska Lottery beneficiary funds passed $489 million with the June quarterly transfer. During the fiscal year, Nebraska Lottery beneficiary funds received a total of $40 million.

Beyond these highlights, the 2013 Annual Report and Resource Guide contains information about general operations and major winners claimed at Nebraska Lottery claim centers.
