About the Nebraska Lottery

Nebraska Scenery

The Nebraska Lottery came to be in 1992 when an amendment to the state's constitution was approved.

The first Powerball lottery tickets went on sale in the state in July 1994, later followed by Mega Millions in 2010. Since November 2004, revenue from the Nebraska Lottery ticket sales has been allocated to a large number of groups. These include the Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund, the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund, and the Nebraska State Fair.

Even if you don't live in the state, you can still visit an authorized lottery retailer to take part in the state's lotteries. You must be 19 years old or older to play and redeem your prizes.
