The Kentucky lottery provides instant win and other lottery games and activities for those who enjoy the thrill of a bit of gambling. Perhaps more importantly to some, however, the Kentucky lottery also provides funding for important state programs. To learn a bit more Kentucky lottery information before you pick up your next ticket, read on.

Kentucky Lottery History

The history of the Kentucky Lottery begins in 1988. In July of 1988, the governor of Kentucky appointed the Kentucky Lottery Commission. This commission was responsible for outlining the details of the Kentucky State Lottery. On November 5, with more that 6% of the vote, the people of Kentucky approved the initiation of a state lottery.

December 16th of that same year, the governor of Kentucky signed the legislation that would allow the Kentucky Lottery to start. In 1989, the first seven members to sit on the board of the Kentucky Lottery were appointed and the regional offices were chosen to be located in Louisville.

In March, the first tickets for the first two Kentucky Lottery games went on sale and more than $27 million was earned off the sale of these tickets in the first week. Over the years, the Kentucky Lottery has just continued to grow. The Kentucky Lottery, as of 2010, offers seven pick games, more than 50 scratch off games, and over 30 pull tab games.

Kentucky Lottery Proceeds

Generally proceeds from state lotteries go to benefit the state in some way through state run programs. Things are no different in the state of Kentucky. Kentucky Lottery proceeds are mostly given to educational programs throughout the state.

  • Since 1999, the Kentucky Lottery has given approximately $1.35 billion to the College Access Program, Educational Excellence Scholarship Program and the Tuition Grants Program
  • The Kentucky Lottery has also donated to funds that help encourage children to learn how to read and stress the importance of continuing to read throughout life, including the “Read to Achieve,” program and the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development. Approximately $30 million has been donated to these programs since 1999.
  • $21 million has been donated to the Housing Corporation’s Kentucky Affordable Housing Fund. This fund has been used to build approximately 2,770 housing units during the period from 1999-2003 in order to provide affordable homes for some of the state’s poorest citizens.
  • $32 million was also set aside as a one-time contribution to benefit Kentucky Vietnam veterans.
  • An additional $214 million was set aside to fund elementary and secondary education in the state.
  • Another $1.4 billion was put into the general fund for the state to be spent as deemed necessary by legislature for other state improvements.

Big Lottery Winners

As with most states that have state lottery games, the list of winners over the years is long. Some have won more money than others, but all have walked away with nice cash rewards for their playing efforts. Probably the most famous lottery winner in Kentucky is David Edwards. Edwards of Ashland, Kentucky won a Powerball jackpot worth $41 million. At the time of his winning, Edwards was unemployed. When he initially won his millions, Edwards had planned to be responsible with his money. He planned on hiring an investor to help him invest his money to make more money for his future generations. However, Edwards was much less than responsible then he said he intended be. Six years later, Edwards says that winning the lottery is a curse and not a blessing. In this time, he had squandered his millions and has nothing left to show for his good fate.
