Virginia Lottery Retailer Center

Retailer Center

You might not think of lottery games as team sports. However, teamwork is the foundation of the Virginia Lottery. Teamwork has helped the Lottery and its retailer partners raise more than $9 billion for Virginia's K-12 public schools since 1999, when Lottery funds were first dedicated solely for that purpose. Working together, we will continue to build a winning record.
