Lottery officials announce they have exceeded $1 billion dollars in sales in a 12 month period. That's the highest in the lottery's 25-year history.

Officials say it reflects an overall 7 percent year-over-year sales increase for the state.

As a result, Indiana will receive more than $248 million in surplus revenue from the Hoosier Lottery to help pay pension and retirement funds for teachers, firefighters, and police officers.
