The Georgia Lottery Corporation anticipates a $30 to 40 million dollar revenue drop from last year, but its effect on education won’t be known for another two weeks.

Last year's lottery yielded lower revenues as well, but provided additional funds than the year prior.

Final figures for deposits to the Lottery for Education fund are expected July 15, with total lottery revenues expected at over $3.5 billion.
