Are lottery sales getting worse? Here's a quote from my interview with Lottery Exeuctive Director Tom Shaheen.
"It's a little slower this summer than last summer. I believe that by the end of this week we're going to be down about $10-12 million dollars."
Shaheen says he's not worried though. He expects to begin offering larger prizes in October and the raffle returns by the end of the year. A summertime jackpot of $245 million also helps sales.
Should be interesting to follow to say the least!
