About the Delaware Lottery
The Delaware Lottery was established in 1974 by legislative decree. Unlike many other state lotteries, which target their revenues for specific efforts, DE Lottery revenue is not earmarked for any one specific cause or group. By law, the Delaware Lottery generates income for the state's General Fund. This means that the lottery's contribution to the General Fund benefits everyone who lives in, visits, or work in the state. The fund is a pool of money that finances a variety of state services, such as youth education, protecting neighborhoods from crime and pollution, maintaining parks and beaches, and healthcare for families and seniors. In this way, the Delaware Lottery helps pay for services that otherwise would require additional tax dollars. The DE Lottery has contributed $5.4 billion to the state's General Fund since 1975 and contributed $215.8 million to the General Fund in FY 2019 alone. The DE Lottery remains the 4th largest source of revenue for the state of Delaware.
