Korea Lottery Commission Sales Increased by 10.3% in 2021

The South Korean lottery organization – the Korea Lottery Commission – has disclosed its financial results in 2021, reporting record-high annual ticket sales. According to the latest news about the lottery sector, in the past year, the Commission has sold ₩5.98 trillion ($5.02 billion) worth of tickets. The organization sent ₩2.429 trillion of the total sum to the lottery funds. The money was then distributed to the charities and used to help the underprivileged.

Data provided by the Korea Commission shows a 10.3% year-on-year increase in lottery ticket sales. As in 2020, the Commission collected ₩5.42 trillion ($4.54 billion) in sales. The Ministry of Strategy and Finance claims that the surge in lottery gambling profits is caused by the global pandemic and the absence or limited capacity of other gambling activities. The awareness of South Koreans about a lottery has also improved during the Coronavirus outbreaks.

High online lottery tickets sales boosted the lottery profits

The Commission reports that the following types of lottery tickets were sold throughout 2021:

online lottery – ₩5.137 trillion;
printed lottery – ₩442 billion;
pension lottery – ₩291.1 billion;
electronic lottery – ₩105.3 billion.

The majority (85.9%) of tickets were purchased in online lottery games, while printed lottery accounted for 7.4% of the total sum, followed by pension (4.9%) and electronic (1.8%) lottery. The last year saw a drastic rise in pension lottery, which increased by 66.4% to ₩142.2 billion only in the first six months of 2021.
