The New York Lottery wants to remind players that Lottery games are designed to be a fun, low-cost form of entertainment in support of education. While most of our players experience them in this way, for some, gambling of any kind can be a problem. The Lottery's Responsible Gaming Awareness Program reflects the Lottery's commitment to addressing this issue.
The New York Lottery's sole mission is to earn revenue for education. Fundamentally, the Lottery is run as an entertainment business. A dedicated team of some 350 New York Lottery employees work with business partners and more than 17,000 retailers statewide to provide innovative, fun, and entertaining games for our customers. Games include drawings like Numbers, Mega Millions and Powerball and some 35-50 scratch-off tickets. The Lottery's Video Lottery business includes Resorts World Casino New York City as well as casinos in Yonkers, Saratoga and six other locations statewide.
The New York Lottery was enacted into the New York State Constitution by voters as a result of a referendum in 1966. The Lottery contributed $3.11 billion to help support education in New York State in fiscal year 2014-15 which is 14 percent of total state education funding to local school districts. It continues to be North America's largest and most profitable Lottery, earning over $54.7 billion in education support statewide since its founding over 47 years ago.
