CLEVELAND (AP) - The opening of two new racinos with slots-like video lottery terminals helped the Ohio Lottery to record sales in the last fiscal year.

Traditional lottery sales combined with the video lottery terminals generated $3.6 billion in sales in the 12 months that ended June 30. That’s up $483 million from the previous fiscal year.

The lottery says profits generated a record $990 million for the state education fund in last fiscal year. That was up $85.7 million from the previous 12 months.

The figures are preliminary. Audited figures are expected to be released in October.

Ohio Lottery profits support public school operations.
