About the North Dakota Lottery
The North Dakota Lottery is unlike all other US state lotteries as it doesn’t have any of its own draw games. While this may be viewed as a negative aspect of the lottery, you’d have to be an extremely tough customer to find yourself disappointed with the selection of multi-state lotteries that are available in North Dakota.
This selection consists of ND Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto, Wild Card and 2by2. Of these lotteries, Powerball and Mega Millions tend to grab the headlines and rightly so, given the amount that their jackpots can reach. Unfortunately, a Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot has yet to be won in North Dakota, but it’s surely only a matter of time, with more and more players winning across the US.
The reason for the lack of big winners is probably the North Dakota Lottery’s late emergence as a state lottery. The ND Lottery was created in 2004 with part of the lottery legislation in the state determining that no single-state lottery games can be offered to players. As a result of this, there are also no scratch tickets available in North Dakota, meaning that it’s the only US state lottery not to offer them.
