About the Maryland Lottery
The Maryland Lottery was started back in January 1973 after the approval of a constitutional amendment to begin a government-run lottery. Since then, its core mission has been to generate revenue to support important state causes, such as education, public safety, public health, and the environment, which they've done successfully: Maryland has brought in $16.7 billion in revenue for the state since its inception.
