NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Louisiana Lottery Corporation says it turned over more than $45.2 million to the state treasury for the third quarter of the state’s 2014-2015 fiscal year.

The corporation said Wednesday that transfers for the year come to nearly $121 million.

Thirty-five percent of Lottery proceeds are transferred to the state treasury and dedicated for K-12 public education.

Retailers earn a 5 percent sales commission on Lottery tickets, plus incentives for cashing winning tickets and bonuses for selling winning tickets.
