New Mexico Lottery
In 1995, under the leadership of Governor Gary Johnson, the New Mexico Lottery was established, and ticket sales commenced in 1996.
By the close of its inaugural year, the lottery recorded a profit exceeding $6 million. That same year, Powerball was introduced to its game suite. Two years later, in 1998, the New Mexico Lottery introduced the state jackpot game, Roadrunner Cash, with daily drawings.
Mega Millions joined the lineup in 2010, followed by Lotto America in 2017. The state utilizes the New Mexico Lottery earnings to support educational initiatives, particularly assisting with tuition expenses for public colleges in the state.
