The Minnesota Lottery was established in 1988 and continues to get involved in a wide range of state-run charity activities. The state lottery is a big contributor to the state fund, too. In fact, around 25 cents per dollar of tickets sold goes straight to the state fund.
Since it began, the Minnesota State Lottery has contributed in the region of $2.9 billion to state welfare. Fondly referred to as Minn lottery by local residents, this state lottery donates revenue to protecting the environment, too. Around 50% of the money from ticket sales is earmarked for the General Fund that supports public safety, education, health care, and government’s aid.
Residents of Minnesota can take part in a wide range of in-house draw games, such as Pick 3, Gopher 5, and North 5. There are also three multi-jurisdictional games on offer: Powerball, Mega Millions, and Lotto America.
