The very first Wisconsin Lottery tickets for Match 3 and Wisconsin Red were sold on September 14, 1988. But they weren’t the first tickets to be sold in WI. In fact, the Wisconsin Oneida tribe ran several games, including Pick 6 and Big Green Lottery. Big Green was WI resident’s very first chance to play the lottery and it quickly became a big hit since it offered a far easier option than driving through to Illinois for tickets.
Times have since changed though, and lottery players in WI now have plenty of convenient options, such as Wisconsin’s Very Own Megabucks and five other single state games. Very Own Megabucks was launched in 1992 as a local option to Powerball. Now, WI residents enjoy having the opportunity to win millions.
Residents in Wisconsin can also play Daily Pick 3, Daily Pick 4, SuperCash! 5 Card Cash and Badger 5. The WI Lottery has a reputation for being cutting edge when it comes to online lottery games, too. The online game called Money Game 4 was started in September 1993, and while it only lasted 3 years, it was replaced by an online game called Daily Millions, with a few others following later.
