Believe it or not, the Massachusetts Lottery is at risk of becoming obsolete. According to WDHD, Lottery Executive Director Michael Sweeney says the reason why is because the acceleration of the coronavirus pandemic has caused industry-wide shifts toward online and cashless interactions. As a result, overall sales have fallen. April’s net profit fell to $71.6 million, nearly $22.5 million less than in April 2019, Sweeney told the Lottery Commission on May 26. The Lottery set a record last year with $1.09 billion in profit.
