Playing Matters

We're Game

The Virginia Lottery creates excitement, encourages friendly competition and supports Virginians’ love of games. And not just our games, but all games! We’re Game. Are you?

For over 25 years we’ve been working and playing together, building an amazing organization committed to growing and giving back – and having fun while doing it. Operating entirely on revenue from game sales, rather than tax dollars, the Virginia Lottery generates approximately $1.2 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.

With Lottery games including Mega Millions, Powerball, Bank a Million, Cash4Life®, Raffle, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Cash 5, Virginians are bound to find a game they love. The Virginia Lottery also has a variety of Scratchers and FastPlay Games to add to the fun. And the excitement doesn’t stop there. Players also can enter promotions and play interactive games online at for more chances to win!
