About the Connecticut Lottery

Connecticut Scenery

The Connecticut Lottery Corporation launched in 1971, and the first ticket was sold in 1972 on February 15. Governor Thomas J. Meskill was the government official at the time that allowed the license when he signed Public Act No. 865.

The Connecticut Lottery is made up of a variety of in-house drawing games, and the lottery also takes part in Powerball and Mega Millions draws. The Connecticut Lottery even offers to this day, their original lottery under the name of Lotto!.

Popular draw games in the state include Play3, Play4, Cash5, Lotto!, and Lucky Links. In 2016, the Connecticut Lottery also started offering Keno, with draws taking place at 4-minute intervals. Players must be 18 years or older to play the lottery in Connecticut.

5. How old do I have to be to purchase lottery tickets in Connecticut?

6. What taxes do I have to pay if I win?

The Connecticut Lottery is required by law to report to the IRS any gambling winnings that are $600 or more and at least 300 times the value of the wager. It is also required to withhold both state and federal taxes for certain prizes. See our Tax Information section for more details.


7. Can I remain anonymous if I win a lottery prize in the state of Connecticut?

In Connecticut, winners cannot remain anonymous and a winner's name, city/town, and the prize amount are considered a matter of public record. However, if the winner can produce a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card, then you can remain anonymous.

We always suggest, however, that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big prizes, as it may be possible to claim your prize through a trust in order to retain your anonymity.


8. Where and how can I claim my lottery prize?

You can claim prizes under $600 at any licensed retailer. You can also mail in your winning ticket along with two valid signed forms of identification (at least one of them has to be a photo ID), or you can choose to visit a claim center to collect any of your winnings.

Before claiming any big lottery prize, however, we strongly recommend that you consult with a lawyer or financial advisor as they can help you during the claim process.


9. What happens if I damage or lose my winning lottery ticket?

Always sign the back of your ticket as soon as you get it and keep it safe. The Lottery can't be held responsible for lost or damaged tickets.


10. Where does the lottery money go?

Lottery ticket sales go toward the state's General Fund, which provides funding for services like human services, hospitals, education, and conservation.
