New York’s lottery is scheduled to open Monday, according to the New Jersey Lottery, after a six-week postponement due to Hurricane Sandy.
The lottery has a $2.2 billion budget.
The state will use the money for construction of a new, $600 million terminal, to provide more security for its machines, and to purchase new equipment to make it more secure.
The New York State Lottery posted its 2016-17 annual report Tuesday.
It said that, despite the shutdown, it is hiring for positions.
The New York City-based lottery has said that it would reopen in the next couple of days.
