About the Oregon Lottery
In the middle of a harsh recession, the Oregon Lottery was established in 1984 by Oregonian voters to revive a weak economy and support economic development and job creation throughout the state.
On April 25, 1985, the Oregon Lottery launched its very first Scratch-it game. In November of that year, Oregon's Game Megabucks followed as the first computer-operated lottery game in Oregon.
By 1992, the Oregon Lottery was also offering Keno, Powerball, Daily 4, Breakopens, and Video Lottery Poker games throughout the state. The Video Lottery gaming system served as a breakthrough, as it was the first 24-hour, centrally controlled gaming system in the country.
Current games in the state of Oregon include Scratch-its, Oregon's Game Megabucks, Keno, Powerball, Mega Millions, Pick 4, Win For Life, Lucky Lines, and Raffle.
The OR Lottery also offers Video Lottery games that include both poker and Vegas-style line games. Line games were added to Video Lottery terminals in 2005.
The OR Lottery benefits state parks, public schools, wastershed enhancement, Outdoor School, job creation, and veteran services within the state.
