Kentucky Lottery breaks sales record

The Kentucky Lottery says it shattered a sales record in the 2012 fiscal year.

Lottery sales topped $823 million dollars.

The previous record of $810 million was set in 2009.

More than $200 million goes to scholarships and grant programs.

Kentucky Lottery officials say a better economy and changes to its scratch off program helped increase sales.
