About the Iowa Lottery
The Iowa Lottery began in 1985 and the first tickets went on sale in August of that year. Proceeds from the Iowa Lottery go towards supporting a number of causes within the state, including veteran support, the CLEAN (environment, agriculture, natural resources) Fund, and the state general fund. This means that monies brought in by the lottery, more than $2 billion to date, have been used in a variety of ways, including the support of research at Iowa's public universities, developing new products and techniques for agriculture, and promoting state tourism.
