In the Community

Founded in 1982, the DC Lottery is the District of Columbia Government agency that regulates the sale of gaming products and charitable gaming activities in the District of Columbia. Since its inception, the DC Lottery has awarded more than $3 billion in prizes to members of our community and transferred more than $2 billion to the District’s General Fund, which supports essential services in the District. Our licensing of charitable gaming activities has helped local nonprofits raise more than $134 million in support of social causes.
