Millions of people throughout Missouri roll the dice and take their chances playing the Missouri lottery. They do so in the hopes that their luck will pay off with cash prizes. While great fun for the player, state lotteries also benefit the citizens of the state, even those who do not play because the proceeds from the state lotteries go to fund multiple state programs.
Prior to 1984, the state of Missouri prohibited lotteries of any kind. However, on November 6, 1984, seventy percent of Missouri voters approved the Amendment to change their state’s constitution and to allow the state to have a lottery. The vote made the Missouri Lottery the 23rd state lottery in the United States.
Seven months later, in June of 1985, the Missouri Senate Bill was passed and the Missouri Lottery was officially approved. Another seven months later, this time in January of 1986, the first tickets for the Missouri Lottery went on sale in the state. The first game was an instant win game, known as Jackpot 86.
In 1987, the Missouri Lottery began their Pick 3 lottery. They also joined the Multi-State Lottery Association and one year later began to sell Lotto America tickets, the first approved game through the Association.
On August 2, 1988, voters approved an amendment lifting the restrictions placed on the first approval; these restrictions had originally limited advertising and set a cap on cash prices. In January of 1992, a game called SuperCash was introduced and Powerball replaced the Lotto America game.
A few months later, in August of 1992, voters approved an amendment that mandated a certain percentage of lottery proceeds be used annually to fund public education programs in Missouri. Over years between 1992 and 2010, the Missouri Lottery has continued to grow, offering new games including online games with bigger payouts. However, of 2009, the state has officially stopped pull-tab games and strictly operates using online games and instant win scratch off tickets.
Prior to 1992, the proceeds from the Missouri Lottery were not required to be used for anything other than payouts for cash prizes to winners and to fund the lottery itself. A certain percentage of proceeds also went to the General Fund for the state to use in any way the Governor and other state officials saw fit.
However, in August of 1992, the voters of Missouri approved Amendment 11 to the state constitution in regards to lottery. This amendment required that the Missouri Lottery use a certain percentage of its proceeds to fund public education programs for elementary, secondary, and higher education.
Since 1992, no proceeds from the Missouri Lottery have been allocated to the General Fund. However, in 2010, the Missouri Lottery contributed in excess of $255 million to public education programs in the state, which represents approximately 4% of the budget for public schools. The proceeds are used to fund such state programs as the A+ program, Virtual Schools, Special Education Excess Costs, new construction for colleges and university buildings, acquisition of libraries, and educational scholarships.
