About the Massachusetts Lottery

Massachusetts Scenery

The first Massachusetts Lottery tickets went on sale in April 1972, with seven lucky players each winning $50,000 in “The Game”.

The extremely popular lottery game Mass Cash was first introduced in 1991. The state lottery joined The Big Game in 1996, followed by Powerball in 2010. The Massachusetts Lottery launched the Lucky for Life game in 2012 and introduced KENO in 2013, offering players the opportunity to win something every four minutes, every day of the week.

Since its inception, the Massachusetts State Lottery has made more than $126 billion in revenue and awarded over $88 billion in prizes. Approximately $27 billion in net profit has been returned to the Commonwealth toward unrestricted local aid. Today, this is one of the most successful lotteries in the U.S. and continues to adapt to the dynamic and innovative marketplace. Players must be 18 years old or older to play the Massachusetts Lottery and claim prizes.
