Who Benefits

When you play, the entire state benefits from it.

In addition to Washington’s Lottery players who took home $432.9 million last year, the Lottery helps fund and support people and communities all over the state. From the student who receives a college grant, to the convenience store owner supporting his family, to the CenturyLink Stadium employee, Washington’s Lottery continues to contribute to the well-being of others with its proceeds.

Statistics and figures are from the 2016 Washington's Lottery Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
