In 1985, Oregon State Lottery tickets became available for purchase. Initially, the lottery began with an instant-win game and later introduced the enduringly popular jackpot game known as Oregon's Game Megabucks.
A pioneering move came in 1992 when the Oregon Lottery became the first state to introduce Video Lottery Terminals, 24-hour-managed video lottery systems.
In its initial decade, the Oregon Lottery dedicated its proceeds to fostering economic development and job creation. Today, lottery profits support various state programs, including those benefiting state parks, habitat conservation, public schools, and veteran services.
