The Kentucky Lottery advertises its money trail in wake of new state budget bill

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky lottery is making an effort to be more transparent.

For the first time in its 25 year history, the Kentucky Lottery is advertising where proceeds from the sale of its games are spent.

The teacher in the commercial received a scholarship funded by the lottery, which she used to go to college and fulfill her dream of teaching.

The Lottery couldn't show this before because it was against the law to mention it, but that restriction was lifted in the latest state budget bill.

So where else does the money go? You can track that here.
