For over 25 years we’ve been working and playing together, building an amazing organization committed to growing and giving back – and having fun while doing it. Operating entirely on revenue from game sales, rather than tax dollars, the Virginia Lottery generates approximately $1.2 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.
With Lottery games including Mega Millions, Powerball, Bank a Million, Cash4Life®, Raffle, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Cash 5, Virginians are bound to find a game they love.
