Background Information

 

In November 2004, Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly approved two State Questions referred to the ballot after legislators passed the measures the year before. One created the Oklahoma Education Lottery Act and the other created the Oklahoma Education Lottery Trust Fund.
Ticket sales began on October 12, 2005 with four instant games. A month later, the Lottery introduced its first draw game, Pick 3, and Powerball followed shortly thereafter in January 2006. In September 2006, Cash 5 made its debut. Hot Lotto became the Lottery’s second multistate game when it started in January 2008; two years later Mega Millions was added to the lineup. The newest game is Pick 4, which launched in July 2011. These games make up the Oklahoma Lottery’s current mix of draw games.
A Player’s Club was introduced in August 2007, offering members advance notice on new games, promotions, winner’s stories, special events, Lottery news, surveys and how-to-play information, plus a daily email with winning numbers.
The mission of the Oklahoma Lottery Commission is to maximize revenues for public education through the creation and marketing of fun and entertaining products consistent with the highest levels of service, integrity and public accountability.
Lottery proceeds benefit education in Oklahoma with revenues distributed as follows:

  • Higher education, 45 percent. Revenues are used for tuition grants, loans and scholarships for Oklahomans, renovations and expansions of universities and colleges through-out the state and endowed chairs for professors at higher education institutions. Funds can also be used for construction of educational facilities, capital outlay projects and technological upgrades for educational institutions.
  • Elementary and secondary education, 45 percent. Revenues are used for such things as compensation for public school teachers, support employees and early childhood development programs. Funds can also be used for construction of educational facilities, capital outlay projects and technological upgrades for school systems.
  • Teachers’ Retirement System Dedicated Revenue Revolving Fund, 5 percent.
  • School Consolidation and Assistance Fund, 5 percent.
