Last week the Arkansas Lottery released its financial report for the month of July.

The report shows Fiscal Year 2019 is off to a dismal start for the Lottery.

The Arkansas Lottery took in more than $42.4 million last month, but paid out less than $5.1 million to scholarships. That’s less than 12% of all the money the Lottery made.

Below is a breakdown of Lottery revenue and scholarship funding for the month of July.
