Missouri Lottery's 31st Anniversary

The Missouri Lottery began sales on Jan. 20, 1986 with one game, the "Jackpot ’86" Scratchers ticket.

Today, we offer more than 40 Scratchers games at any given time, plus nine Draw Games - including both in-state and national games.

Since 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $5.5 billion for the state and public education. Annual Lottery proceeds comprise about 4 percent of the state’s funding for public education – an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.
