In the fiscal year ending June of 2015, Oregonians spent in the neighborhood of $88 million on Oregon Lottery products each month. Of that total, about 71 percent was spent playing video lottery; the rest was spent on traditional games: Keno, Scratch-Its, Powerball and Megabucks.
Retailers offering these products were paid a commission. This chart shows area businesses’ sales and commissions for January 2016—the most recent month for which figures are available.
Last year, four of the state’s top 10 retail locations are in east Portland: Shari’s on Airport Way; Dotty’s at Mall 205; Elmer’s in Parkrose and the Glass House Tavern on Sandy Boulevard. These four locations had about $5.3 million in sales of video lottery products. In January 2016, east Portland’s top three retailers were Dotty’s in San Rafael, Shari’s on Airport Way and Elmer’s in Parkrose.
Businesses not offering video games are not included.
