State lottery sales grew 2.7 percent last year to a record $3.8 billion, the Pennsylvania Lottery said Tuesday.
Sales in fiscal year 2013-14 were $99.9 million more than in the previous year, the lottery said.
More than $1 billion in net revenue was dedicated to programs serving seniors.
Sales for instant games grew 6 percent to $2.4 billion, while sales for terminal-based games, such as the Powerball and Mega Millions, dropped 2.9 percent to $1.35 billion.
The Corbett administration has pressed the General Assembly to reduce the percentage of ticket sales revenue that must be returned to pay for programs for seniors.
