The Florida lottery experienced another record-breaking week of sales in scratch-off tickets, with more than $12.2 million of the proceeds going to education.

Sales of scratch-off tickets totaled more than $65.3 million for the week ending Feb. 24, 2013, which exceeded the previous week’s record of $64.7 million, according to the Florida lottery. The sales totals in each week were the largest recorded in a week since the lottery’s 25-year life.
