Officials Say Oklahoma Lottery Education Requirement Hinders Income

What happened to the Lottery funds? This is the question that Oklahoma constituents are asking after lottery income failed to meet the projections given to voters in 2005 - the year they voted to approve a state run Lottery.

Oklahoma lottery includes Powerball, MegaMillions, Hot Lotto and a number of scratch games - has provided about $70 million a year to education.

In May, their total contribution to education surpassed $400 million.  However, this doesn't appear to be enough.
