About the Iowa Lottery

Iowa Scenery

The Iowa Lottery came about in April 1985, with the first tickets going on sale in August 1985. Iowa is a founding member of the Multi-State Lottery Association and began selling Lotto America tickets later in 1988.

In 1992, the state added Powerball to its portfolio, with Mega Millions following sometime later in 2010. Since its inception, the Iowa Lottery has made over $2 billion for various state initiatives. Ticket sale revenues go toward supporting projects under the supervision of the General Fund, supporting veterans, and Vision Iowa, which is an initiative that helps create tourist destinations.

Players in Iowa must be 21 years old or older to take part in the lottery games and claim their winnings.
