About the Colorado Lottery

Colorado Scenery

The Colorado Lottery started in 1983, with the very first draw taking place on April 23. The lottery is a self-funded organization and doesn’t receive any help from the state’s General Fund.

All of the funds that are needed to run the lottery come solely from business revenue. The lottery is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association and revenue from lottery ticket sales is directed by the state’s constitutional amendment, as approved by voters.

To date, the Colorado Lottery has spent over $3.4 billion protecting the state’s wilderness along with a myriad of other activities like building swimming pools, parks, trails, and a list of other recreational sports.
