West Virginia Lottery
The West Virginia State Lottery marked its inauguration on January 9, 1986, with an impressive first-day sale of over 1.5 million tickets. This lottery remains a popular pastime today. Players have a plethora of choices, including various instant-win games, in-state draws like Daily 3, Daily 4, Keno, and Cash 25, as well as participation in multi-state jackpot draws, including Mega Millions, Powerball, and Lotto America. West Virginia also operates a video lottery system.
Up to the present day, the proceeds from lottery ticket sales have contributed over $9 billion towards public education, senior services, and state tourism.
