Our Economic Impact

Where The Money Goes

Every dollar spent on a Missouri Lottery product goes somewhere. Most of it is returned to players in the form of prizes. After prizes awarded to players, the next largest amount goes to Missouri Education — the Missouri Lottery's primary beneficiary. Next, Missouri retailers earn commissions and bonuses on every ticket they sell. Read below how each of these groups are impacted by Missouri Lottery products and prizes.
