Created in 1982, Washington's Lottery was established to generate revenues for state programs through the sale of lottery products (games). Back in 1982 Washington was going through a recession and there was a great need for funding in many areas, the Legislature was reluctant to pass any bill that would dedicate Lottery funds solely to education. Therefore, Washington's Lottery was created to provide revenues for the State General Fund, which supports schools, human services programs, natural resources, and government programs.
$530.2 million was won by Washington Lottery players last year. The Washington Lottery helps fund and support people and communities around the state. Washington's Lottery continues to contribute to the well-being of others through its proceeds, from the student who receives a college scholarship to the convenience shop owner who supports their family to the CenturyLink Stadium employee. You can check out the breakdown on their site.
Presently, Washington's Lottery offers five draw games; Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto, Hit 5, Match 4, Pick 3 and Daily Keno. New Scratch games are launched as frequently as once a month, with players having a choice of more than 30 games a year to experience.
