meet the executive director

Kevin Hall Kevin Hall is executive director of the Virginia Lottery.

Prior to that, he served in key legislative, management and communication roles for two Virginia governors and a United States senator, in Richmond and in Washington, D.C.

Since 2009, Hall served as communications director and senior policy advisor for U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner on Capitol Hill.

Hall's policy focus in the Senate included research into the impact of disruptive digital business models on the U.S. workforce and on the economic experiences and expectations of consumers. Those are issues which the Virginia Lottery is successfully addressing every day.

Between 2002-8, Hall was press secretary for Mark Warner and Tim Kaine when each served as Virginia governor. In that role, he advised agencies across state government in an effort to maximize public awareness about initiatives and opportunities benefitting all Virginians.

Hall, a Richmond native, is a former print and broadcast news reporter and editor for the Associated Press and the Virginia News Network.

He spent more than a decade covering Virginia government as a news reporter, including the events surrounding the initial 1988 launch of the Virginia Lottery.

A message from Executive Director Kevin Hall

On the day the first Virginia Lottery ticket was sold in 1988, few people could have envisioned the success of the next three decades. At that time, the Lottery consisted of a single Scratcher game – just one – with a top prize of $5,000.

Now, as the Virginia Lottery marks its 30th year benefitting the Commonwealth, we see a variety of games with a variety of prize levels, multistate draw games like Mega Millions and Powerball, twice-a-day draw games like Pick 3 and Pick 4, Print n’ Play games – and second chance games even if the initial ticket wasn’t a winner.

All of those games help support a positive social mission: To generate funds for K-12 public schools across the Commonwealth. That’s the reason Virginia has a lottery. Last year, Fiscal Year 2018, Virginia Lottery players helped generate more than $606 million for schools. That’s a record.

Over the life of the Lottery, our players have helped contribute more than $9 billion for education programs such as school nutrition, purchasing textbooks, and funding pre-K, early reading and career training efforts.

That’s not the only way Virginia benefits from lottery games. Last year we paid out a record $1.3 billion in prizes. That’s more than 60 cents of every dollar going right back to players. In addition, the thousands of stores that sell Virginia Lottery products benefitted last year through more than $121 million in commissions. Many of those stores are small, locally-owned businesses which strengthen their communities in significant ways.

All of us here at the Virginia Lottery are proud of the work we do every day to benefit education in the Commonwealth. It’s good fun for a great cause.
