Every time you play the Minnesota State Lottery, you give back to Minnesota. It’s true! For every $1 spent on lottery tickets, approximately 24¢ goes to our great state. Over the years, players have helped the Lottery raise more than $2,000,000,000 — and this number grows every day!
And since Lottery revenue is directed to the General Fund and the Minnesota environment, we all benefit. A little over half of the money from ticket sales has gone into the General Fund to support services like K-12 education, health care, aid to local governments and public safety. The rest of the revenue, more than $800 million, has helped the environment in many ways through the following funds: (1) the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, (2) the Natural Resources Fund, and (3) the Game and Fish Fund.
These programs help to preserve, enrich and restore Minnesota’s environment and natural resources by managing and enhancing hunting and fishing, supporting our parks and zoos and providing expanded outdoor recreational opportunities for future generations.
