Looking for Delaware lottery information, or details about the history of the lottery? Lotteries date back a long way- the oldest state lottery in the United States is the New Hampshire state lottery that was established in 1964, but lottery type games have actually been in existence for much longer. Archaeologists have determined that lotto-type games have been around since the times of the Pharaohs in Egypt. Lotteries were also used during the time of the Revolutionary War to aid in providing supplies and arms to troops on the front lines and also to provide funding for restoration. The construction of such universities as Princeton, Yale, and Harvard was provided for by a lottery. In addition, the construction for the roof of the Capitol building was made possible through a lottery.... but what about the Delaware lottery? When did that start and what does the money from the Delaware lottery go for?
The Delaware Lottery has existed since 1974. The Delaware Lottery was made official on May 31, 1974 when the then current Governor of Delaware, Sherman W. Tribbitt, signed into law an Act submitted by the General Assembly. A few short months later, in October of 1975, the Delaware Lottery begins to sell tickets for its first game with weekly drawings.
On February 10, 1976, the Delaware Lottery introduced their first instant win game called Diamond Instant Dollars. Throughout the years the Delaware Lottery continued to add games to its arsenal of available opportunities for players to try their luck. Then, in 1991, the Delaware Lottery joined the Multi-State Lottery Association and offered the chance at an additional game called Lotto America. In 1991, Lotto America became PowerBall and the Delaware Lottery also offered the chance for customers to play Mega Millions.
When voters approve a state lottery, they typically also decide on where the proceeds from the lottery will go. Generally, about fifty percent of proceeds are kept to support the lottery itself. This portion of the proceeds goes to support the operational costs for sustaining the lottery and also to payout prizes to winners.
After this portion of the proceeds is taken out, the rest of the proceeds remaining for the Delaware Lottery are placed into the state General Fund. The state General Fund is used to support various programs for public and higher education, health and social services, public safety, judicial corrections, child, youth, and family services, and natural resources and environmental control. Since 1975 when the Delaware Lottery sold its first ticket, more than $3.3 billion has been deposited to the state General Fund in Delaware.

One notable story about the Delaware Lottery occurred in 2004. A couple from Seaford, Delaware was not aware of their $100,000 PowerBall win until they saw a story in their local paper. The paper claimed someone from the store where they purchased their tickets had won a $100,000 prize. When they saw the story in the paper a month after the drawing, it prompted the couple to look on the Website at the numbers drawn almost a month prior. Sure enough, their PowerBall numbers matched all of the numbers drawn except for the red PowerBall number. The couple, who wished to remain anonymous, said they did not know how they would spend the money, but with a 22 year old son in college it would not be difficult for them to do so.
