Ohio Lottery Commission

About Ohio Lottery Commission

The Ohio Lottery Commission was created in May 1973 by a voter-approved constitutional amendment. The first tickets went on sale in August 1974. Today, the Ohio Lottery Commission offers customers a wide variety of instant games and on-line games to play at more than 10,000 licensed retailer locations across the state and VLT play at the state’s seven racinos.

Since 1974, the Lottery has provided more than $22 billion to public education. Annually, we provide about 4 percent of the funding needed for public education—an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.
