Get Ready to Celebrate Lottery Week!

It’s time to celebrate! In collaboration with lotteries across North America, the Ohio Lottery is celebrating the second annual Lottery Week beginning July 13.

Lottery Week recognizes lotteries across the United States and Canada for their collective contributions to the communities they serve and the positive impacts they make.

On average, about 95% of funds generated from traditional U.S. lottery games goes directly back into the economy through prizes, public beneficiaries and retailer commissions. 

In fiscal year 2019, U.S. lotteries generated $25.1 billion for their respective good causes and transferred about $5 billion to their approximately 216,000 retailer partners.

We're excited to highlight those numbers and share with you some in-depth information about the impact the Ohio Lottery is making in the Buckeye State for retailers, players and Ohio schools.

We'll celebrate July 13 through July 17, and you get to participate to win prizes to celebrate with us!

Each day we'll post daily trivia questions on our Facebook and Instagram channels that highlight the numbers we’re proud of like our contribution to education, prizes paid out to players and the commissions earned by retailers.

All you have to do is post the answer in the comments of the post. We’ll conduct a drawing of all those who participate in the trivia posts on Instagram and Facebook to win a book of $2 Powerplay Cashword Scratch-Offs each day.

Be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram so you can join in the fun! Watch for the first Lottery Week post on July 13!

Wondering how Lottery Week began? It evolved from an idea implemented with great success by the Massachusetts Lottery in 2018. Declaring July 17, 2018 as the official National Lottery Day, Massachusetts offered consumers and retailers a special day of lottery promotions and celebrated the provision of billions of dollars in local aid provided since the state’s Lottery was created in 1972.
