2017 Financial Report Button

retailer news

By law, all unclaimed Virginia Lottery prizes go to the Literary Fund. The Literary Fund is used solely for educational purposes, such as upgrading technology in schools and teacher retirement funding.

The Lottery transferred $14.1 million to the Literary Fund in Fiscal Year 2018. Since 1988, the Lottery has transferred more than $289.2 million in unclaimed prizes to the Literary Fund.

The Lottery also participates in the Set-Off Debt Collection Act, in which prize payments are withheld to pay certain obligations that the prize winner owes. Examples of these obligations are state and federal taxes, child support and tuition from state universities or colleges. The Virginia Lottery collected $1.97 million in FY 2018, for a total of more than $32.3 million since 1988.

 


Here at the Virginia Lottery, we take playing very seriously. Fun matters. Excitement matters. And so does the education of Virginia's youngest residents. It's the very reason we play so enthusiastically. Every time you scratch a ticket or pick your numbers for the big jackpot, you are creating winners in education all over the Commonwealth. Last year, the Lottery contributed more than $606 million to Virginia’s public schools. While all Virginia Lottery profits go to K-12 education, now school divisions can spend nearly 1/3 of those dollars as they wish giving them more control of where those dollars go.

we're game for education

turnoverSince 1999, all Virginia Lottery profits have been used for public education in the Commonwealth, for kindergarten through 12th grade.

In Fiscal Year 2018, the Virginia Lottery had sales of more than $2.1 billion. Of this total, the Lottery generated more than $606 million, or 28.3%, for public education grades K-12; 61.1% went back to players in the form of prizes; 5.7% went to the retailers who sell Virginia Lottery tickets, and 4.9% went to operational expenses.

When Virginians voted in 1987 for a state-operated lottery, some people may have made the assumption that they voted on how to spend the Lottery's proceeds. This was not the case. The lottery proceeds, which are approximately one-third of lottery sales, were to be used as determined by the General Assembly. The use of the proceeds has changed over time. In 1989, lottery proceeds were dedicated to capital construction projects. From 1990 to 1998, the lottery proceeds were transferred to the state's General Fund. Starting in 1999, a state budget amendment sent lottery proceeds to local public school divisions to be used solely for educational purposes. In the year 2000, more than 80% of Virginia voters said yes to the creation of the State Lottery Proceeds Fund. The measure, now a permanent part of Virginia's Constitution, directs all Virginia Lottery profits be used solely for educational purposes.
