We recently sent a Freedom of Information Request (FOI) to the Arkansas Lottery regarding salary expenses. They sent us back a breakdown of salaries and benefits for every lottery employee.
Here are some key findings:
- 30% of the lottery’s salary budget goes to 11.6% of its employees.
- 9 of lottery’s 86 officials collectively earn almost $1.5 million.
- The combined salaries of the lottery officials earning six-figures is equal to over 400 college scholarships.
