Playing our part here, there, and everywhere!

No matter where you live in Minnesota or what you do, lottery dollars are all around you! Every time someone says “I’MN,” we are playing our part by returning money back to Minnesota from Ada to Zumbrota. Since 1990, the Minnesota Lottery has played its part and generated more than $3.5 billion for programs that benefit our state. Every year, millions of dollars go to back to Minnesota to help our state parks & trails, lakes, education, health care, and so much more. By preserving, restoring, and protecting our environment, it's how we all play our part. Say I’MN and learn more below!
