Kansas gambling revenues raised through lottery ticket sales and three state-owned casinos are expected to top $150 million for the fiscal year ending June 30.

The Kansas Lottery said Monday that the portion of revenues from scratch-off and multi-state lottery tickets was $74.5 million, topping the 2012 mark by $2.5 million.

Revenues from state-owned casino operations in Dodge City, Kansas City and Mulvane are expected to top $79 million by the end of the fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.

The state uses gambling revenues to fund economic development activities, correctional institution building funds, reduce state debt and local property taxes, state employee pensions and expansion of university engineering programs.
