About Idaho Lottery

Idaho is one of the states in the United States that has managed to establish a successful lottery system. The history of the Idaho Lottery dates back to 1989 when the state government passed a law allowing the formation of a lottery.

The Idaho Lottery started its operations in 1989, and its first game was called "Scratch Game #1." It was a scratch-off game that cost $1 per ticket, and the top prize was $10,000. The game was an instant success, and more than $2.5 million worth of tickets were sold in the first week of its launch.

In the early years, the Idaho Lottery offered scratch-off games only, and it wasn't until 1992 that it introduced its first draw game, which was called "Idaho Cash." The game was a pick-5 game, and the top prize was $50,000.

Over the years, the Idaho Lottery continued to expand its game offerings. In 1995, it introduced "Powerball," which is a multi-state draw game that offers some of the biggest jackpots in the world. In 2007, the Idaho Lottery introduced "Mega Millions," another multi-state draw game that offers huge jackpots.

Apart from these two multi-state games, the Idaho Lottery also offers several in-state games, including "Pick 3," "Weekly Grand," "Hot Lotto," and "Lucky for Life."

One of the main reasons why the Idaho Lottery has been successful is because of the way it distributes its proceeds. The Idaho Constitution mandates that all lottery proceeds be used to benefit public schools and the permanent building fund.

Since its inception, the Idaho Lottery has contributed more than $900 million to these causes. In the fiscal year 2020 alone, it contributed $61.5 million to the state's public schools.

Like any other lottery, the Idaho Lottery has faced its fair share of controversies over the years. One of the most notable controversies was in 2015 when the Idaho Lottery introduced a new scratch-off game called "Quarter Millionaire." The game offered players a chance to win $250,000, but it was later discovered that one of the top prizes had already been claimed before the game was even launched.

Another controversy involved a former employee of the Idaho Lottery who was accused of embezzlement. In 2019, Eddie Tipton, the former security director of the Multi-State Lottery Association, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for rigging lottery games in several states, including Idaho.

The Idaho Lottery has come a long way since its inception in 1989. Over the years, it has managed to establish itself as a successful and reliable lottery system that benefits public schools and the permanent building fund.

While the system is not perfect, the Idaho Lottery has done a lot of good for the state, and it will continue to do so in the years to come.

Since its launch more than 30 years ago in 1993, the Idaho Lottery Corporation has contributed billions of dollars to the state of Idaho, making it one of the most successful lotteries in the nation.

The Idaho Lottery is run by the Idaho Lottery Corporation, a quasi-governmental organization that does not have an executive director or president. Instead, the 14-member board of directors is led by Chairman Kenneth R. Wiggins Jr. and Vice Chairman Michael Ederton. Together, they are responsible for handling lottery operations.

The Idaho Lottery Corporation sells lottery tickets and instant scratch-off tickets in more than 12,000 retailers all over the state and is a member of the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL). NASPL members uphold their own integrity and trustworthiness commitment when it comes to responsible gaming.

The money from lottery ticket sales is used to fund education across the state of Idaho. The Idaho Lottery Corp. has put more than $21 billion into Idaho’s education programs since its launch in 1993, including college scholarships and grants, pre-kindergarten programs, and the HOPE program.

In the 2020 fiscal year alone, the Idaho Lottery Corporation provided more than $1.2 billion in contributions to Idaho’s education programs. Of this sum, $551.9 million went to the HOPE scholarship and grant program, which provides assistance to college students, and $206.9 million to the Pre-K program, which helps prepare four-year-olds for their kindergarten year.

The Idaho Lottery also sponsors several events and campaigns, such as the “All for Education” Chalkboard Challenge, the “Are You Cool Enough” quiz, and the “Don’t-Kick-the-Habit” anti-tobacco campaign.

In addition to its contribution to the state's quality of life, the Idaho lottery has seen other changes in the last few years. For example, in 2020 it became the first lottery in the country to launch an online subscription service that allows customers to play the same numbers for up to 12 weeks in a row. It was the first lottery to introduce a second-chance anomaly prize. That same year, the Idaho Lottery introduced “Game On!,” which is a game using mobile technology that offers prizes to those playing with their lottery tickets.
