South Dakota has a slightly different system than most states when it comes to overseeing the South Dakota lottery. The majority of states have appointed a lottery commission, which is a group of elected or appointed officials who work specifically with all aspects of the different lottery programs in the state, from logo designs to regulations regarding how the games are played and who is allowed to play them. South Dakota, however, is one of the few states who allow the lottery programs to be regulated by the state government’s Department of Revenue and Regulation. However, South Dakota, like the majority of states, mandates that anyone who wishes to purchase a lottery ticket of any kind must be at least 18 years of age. A person who is under 18 years old may receive a winning lottery ticket as a gift, so it is redeemable to the otherwise ineligible person.

South Dakota Lottery History 

Voters decided to allow for the creation of a state lottery program in South Dakota in November of 1986. By the time 1987 was over, legislation had passed and the state began selling tickets for both instant-win scratch-offs and drawing-type lottery tickets. In 1990, South Dakota joined the Multi-State Lottery Association adding Powerball to its game roster (Powerball had replaced LottoAmerica as the state’s interstate lottery program.)

As the years passed, South Dakota has also added Mega Millions and Hot Lotto, and has begun participating in the Tri-West Lotto with Montana and Idaho.

How South Dakota Spends the Lottery Money

South Dakota also runs with the majority of states that participate in lottery programs regarding how it spends the money that is generated by the lottery.

  • First, there is money secured for the people who win jackpots through buying tickets. 
  • After that, the bulk of the money that is generated through the lottery is used to fund programs for education and natural resource development and maintenance, as well as for funding all of the operations of the lottery and the salaries for the employees who work with the lottery.

Big Lottery Winners

In early June of 2009, after having his family’s mobile home trailer repossessed because of overdue property taxes, Neal Wanless, a 23 year-old rancher from Mission, South Dakota stepped forward to claim one of the lottery’s biggest prizes to date: a Powerball jackpot worth just over $232 million dollars. While most people would have begun spending like there was no tomorrow, Neal went back to his family’s ranch and kept up on his portion of the chores, all the while thinking about the almost $89 million dollars he was about to receive after he accepted his jackpot win in a one-time payment rather than the annuity option.
