Also, remember that in Rhode Island, when you play the Lottery, everybody wins. Since 1974, the Lottery has transferred more than $6.9 billion to the State’s General Fund, which supports almost every aspect of life in our State, from education and health care to public safety and the environment. So, you don’t have to play the Lottery to reap its rewards. In addition to the money generated for the General Fund, there are the sales commissions paid to the hard-working Lottery Retailers; those business establishments, restaurants, and small stores across the State where Lottery products are sold. So, the story does not end with the purchase of a Lottery ticket, rather it is just the beginning of the many ways funds are channeled back into the local economy.

As a business, the Rhode Island Lottery has a responsibility to maximize revenues. However, as a State Agency, our challenge lies in maximizing revenues while maintaining the trust and best interest of the citizens of the State of Rhode Island. It has always been, and will continue to be, the Rhode Island Lottery’s goal to achieve both.

The success of the Rhode Island Lottery would not be possible without the commitment of the Rhode Island Lottery Retailers, our employees, and most of all our players. We encourage everyone to Play Responsibly and continue to enjoy the Lottery as it was intended when it started in 1974 - a fun, positive way to generate additional revenue for the State of Rhode Island.

Our goal is to make this site as user-friendly and informative as possible. We value your opinions, so feel free to contact us with any suggestions you may have or questions you don’t find answered on our site.

Thank you and enjoy!
