- About FY14 Mega Millions Sales -

I'm sure you've all noticed that FY14 Mega Millions
and Megaplier sales increased by $72 million from
FY13 sales. The sole reason for this is a direct result
of ONLY two roll cycles.

In Dec 2013, there was a $656 million jackpot -
22 consecutive draws - and Texas roll sales
was a whopping $69.4 million.

But in March 2014, just a short 4 months later,
there was a $400 million jackpot - 21 consecutive
draws
- but Texas roll sales was only $41.6 million.

As you can see, these two roll cycles brought
in $110 million for FY14 for Mega Millions.
You can also see how badly sales decreased too!

Imagine what Mega Millions sales would have been
had it not been for these two large jackpots.

Then imagine, if you will, how much sales would
have fallen from FY13.

FY14 Sales - Additional Comments

Scratch ticket (instant) sales are incomplete as I
write this on 8/31/14. As soon as I can obtain
unaudited FY14 instant sales figures, I will post it.
(Added scratch ticket sales for 51st week on 9/2/14)

With the exception of last year, the TLC generally
releases audited FY sales during the 2nd to 3rd week of
Sept. However, last year (FY13) they were 3 months late.

The Texas Lottery generally brags about "total sales"
which is deceiving - what matters is the bottom line.
Example - How much did the state make after all expenses
were paid? How much did the state lose in potential income
as a result of management decisions and rule changes?

These are questions that the legislature needs to consider.
If they would consider the real facts, then I'm quite certain
we'd have changes for sure.

It will be interesting to see how my figures differs from
the figures the TLC will release. I track draw sales daily
and I balance with the payouts. There should be some
differences because they should report every penny in sales
from literally Sept 1, 2013 through midnight Aug 31, 2014.
I, on the other hand, track "draw" sales - no advance
sales and if tickets are given away in promo's, I do
NOT count "freebies" as income.

In summary, Lotto Texas sales are down by <$11 million>;
Powerball sales are down by <$106 million;> Pick 3 sales are down
by <$14.7 million>; All or Nothing sales are down by <$17.3 million>
while Daily 4 sales are up by $8.6 million. Cash 5 and Texas 2 Step
are down by a total <$6.1 million>. No one can say that Extra
increased its sales because it started in April and hasn't had
two full years of play.

The Texas Lottery is planning on two new games to restore
sales in future years. Both games will fail in the long run - in
my opinion! It's too bad they don't fix things permanently
now rather than continuing with their failing ideas.

There's only one way to control the Texas Lottery and that
would be to have someone in the legislature know enough
to put a halt to all the changes. But there's no one, including the
Commissioners, who knows the history of the games and
the outcomes. The only state I know where the legislature
seems to care is Illinois - and I'm watching them with interest!
