South Dakota Lottery
Following the approval of a constitutional amendment by voters, the South Dakota Lottery was inaugurated in 1987. In a historic move, South Dakota became the first state to introduce a video lottery in 1989. The following year, the lottery became a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association. Presently, players have the choice of participating in multi-state games such as Lucky for Life, Powerball, Lotto America, and Mega Millions, along with the South Dakota Lottery's exclusive jackpot game, Dakota Cash.
Since its inception, the South Dakota Lottery has contributed over $1 billion towards supporting education, environmental initiatives, and services to combat gambling addiction within the state. Furthermore, it has played a substantial role in funding drinking water and wastewater improvement projects, as well as supporting recycling and waste disposal programs, by contributing millions of dollars.
