Looking for Idaho lottery information, or some details on the history of lottos? The notion of private lotteries began as early as the 1800s, and continues in over half of the 50 states throughout the US, including Idaho. Now, Idaho has a profitable lottery that helps the state earn the funds to pay for various expenditures. In addition, although run and maintained by individual states, many of the states, including Idaho, are members of the Multi State Lottery Association – a non-profit, government benefited association.
The Idaho State Lottery is a relatively new lottery institution. It began on July 19, 1989 and, due to its being a member of the Multi State Lottery Association, the government of the state of Idaho maintains it.
Initially created in November 1988 by the voting population of Idaho, the Idaho State Lottery was in full swing by mid 1989. Initially the Idaho State Lottery instituted games such as Mega Millions, Powerball, Hot Lotto, Wild Card 2, Double Play Daily and Pick 3.
As time progressed the Idaho State Lottery began to offer scratch off games as well as online games. Other slight changes have also occurred with the Idaho Lottery. For example there have been vendor changes. Additionally by 2007 and 2008, the Idaho State Lottery offered VIP Club members the chance to earn rewards with each play. Furthermore, regular players now have the option to donate a portion of their winnings from scratch offs to a non-profit organization, or to the Special Olympic World Winter Games.
While the majority of the money from the Idaho lottery goes back to the players as winnings, the other profits made by the Idaho State Lottery are used to fund the Idaho Public School system and as a funding resource for the colleges and universities of Idaho. Retailer costs, administration, and advertising account for the smallest percentages in funds collection.

The highest jackpot ever won in the history of the Idaho State Lottery was $220.2 million won by Brad Duke on May 28, 2005. Thankfully, unlike many, Duke did not have a sad ending. Instead he chose to invest his money wisely. His intent was to turn the money that he had won into billions. Duke also managed to set up a consulting firm, eradicate his debt and set up college funds for his family. He did not do anything crazy with his money, instead he hired a financial planning team that put together a financial plan that was in line with his goals.
