The Ohio Lottery Commission was created in May 1973 by a voter-approved constitutional amendment. The first tickets went on sale in August 1974. Today, the Ohio Lottery Commission offers customers a wide variety of instant games and on-line games to play at over 8,800 licensed retailer locations across the state. In FY05, the Ohio Lottery added on another task: to administer and monitor charitable bingo licensing for the state..
Since 1974, the Lottery has provided more than $16 billion to public education. Annually, we provide about 4.5 percent of the funding needed for public education — an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.
