History of the Kentucky Lottery

The Kentucky Lottery got its start in November 1988 when a vote showed that citizens were ready to have a state lottery of their own. On December 16th, the laws that created the Commission were approved by Governor Wallace G. Wilkinson.

The first Kentucky Lottery tickets went on sale on April 4th, 1989 and by the end of the day retailers had sold over $5 million in tickets for two instant games. Powerball tickets went on sale in April 1992 after Lotto*America was retired and the state joined Mega Millions in January 2010.

Today, the Kentucky Lottery Commission has raised over $4.1 billion for educational initiatives in the state. Since 1999 alone over $2.2 billion has been allocated to scholarships, tuition grants and college programs across Kentucky. Thanks to lottery players, students from Alexandria to Winchester have been able to stay in-state to fulfill their dreams of earning a higher education.

Playing Kentucky Lottery Games

The Kentucky Lottery offers three interstate games – Powerball, Mega Millions and Lucky for Life.

Cash Ball with Kicker is the Kentucky Lottery's premier in-state game. Players can pick up two entries for $1 and get two chances to win a top prize of $100,000, or they can pay $1 for a single entry and the chance to win up to $200,000. To play, just pick four numbers from 1 to 33 and a single number - the Cash Ball - from 1 to 31. Drawings take place from Monday to Saturday. To win the top prize, players must match all four numbers drawn as well as the Cash Ball. Here's how it all works:

Winning Tier Prize per $1 Wager Prize per 50c Wager Odds of Winning
Match 4 + Cash Ball $200,000 $100,000 1 in 1,268,520
Match 4 $2,000 $1,000 1 in 42,284
Match 3 + Cash Ball $300 $150 1 in 10,936
Match 3 $50 $25 1 in 365
Match 2 + Cash Ball $26 $13 1 in 521
Match 2 $1 50c 1 in 17
Match 1 + Cash Ball $2 $1 1 in 87
Match 0 + Cash Ball $2 $1 1 in 53
Odds of winning any Cash Ball prize are 1 in 10.8

Unlock the chance to win up to $10,000 with Kicker, a supplementary game that costs 50 cents or $1 to play. You don't have to win a Cash Ball prize to snap up a bit of cash with this game - all you have do is match 1 or all of the numbers in their drawn order from left to right. Numbers are randomly selected, with the first four numbers pulled from a pool of 0 to 9 and the fifth number being chosen from 0 to 4. Here's what you could win:

Winning Tier Prize for $1 Wager Prize for 50c Wager
5 Numbers, Exact Order $10,000 $5,000
First Four Numbers, Exact Order $500 $250
First Three Numbers, Exact Order $50 $25
First 2 Numbers, Exact Order $10 $5
First Number $2 $1
Odds of winning any Kicker prize are 1 in 10

5 Card Cash is a poker-based game that combines the best of both worlds. With the chance to win up to $5,000 straight away or up to $100,000 on a draw game, it's never been a better time to play this great game. Drawings are held from Monday to Saturday at 11:00 PM and tickets cost $2 each. Players receive Quick Picks printed with five card symbols out of a possible 52; they cannot choose their own cards. Straight away, they can match specific symbols and combinations, based on classic poker hands, to win cash prizes. Here's how it works:

Winning Tier Prize Odds of Winning
Royal Flush (Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 of same suit) $5,000 1 in 649,740
Straight Flush (5 card symbols in consecutive rank, same suit) $500 1 in 72,193
4 of a Kind (4 card symbols of same rank/number) $200 1 in 4,165
Full House(3 of a Kind + Pair) $75 1 in 694
Flush (5 card symbols of the same suit, not consecutive) $50 1 in 509
Straight (any 5 card symbols, consecutive, not all of same suit) $20 1 in 255
3 of a Kind(3 card symbols, same rank/number) $5 1 in 47
2 Pair (any 2 card symbols with the same rank/number) $3 1 in 21
Pair of 9s or Better (any pair of card symbols with same rank above value of 9, including Aces) Free Ticket 1 in 5.1
Odds of winning any 5 Card Cash prize are 1 in 3.7

Of course, you also have the chance to win yet again in the draw game. Five card symbols are drawn and players must match at least two of these to win a prize. Here's how it works:

Winning Tier Prize Odds of Winning
Match 5 of 5 $100,000 1 in 2,598,960
Match 4 of 5 $500 1 in 11,059
Match 3 of 5 $25 1 in 240
Match 2 of 5 $3 1 in 16
Odds of winning any 5 Card Cash draw are approximately 1 in 15

Other Kentucky Lottery games include Pick 3, Pick 4 and Keno.

Feel the need to play a game straight away? You can pick up scratch-offs from authorized Kentucky Lottery retailers. Games cost between $1 and $25 and can pay out six-figure cash prizes! Why not try one today and see if you have what it takes to win big?

Claiming Kentucky Lottery Prizes

All winning tickets will expire 180 days after the date of the drawing. Any prizes won on scratch-off tickets will expire 180 days after the game's announced date of closure.

Any Kentucky Lottery prizes worth $600 or less can be redeemed by visiting an authorized retailer or by mail. Prizes worth between $600 and $5,000 can be claimed at a Kentucky Lottery Cashing Agent. Any prize you have won between $5,000 and $25,000 must either be claimed at the Louisville Corporate Headquarters or the Lexington regional offices. If you're lucky enough to win over $25,000, then you have to claim your winnings in person at the Kentucky Lottery Corporate Headquarters in Louisville.

Won $5,000 or more? The prize money will be subject to a federal withholding tax of 25 percent and a Kentucky state tax of six percent.

The Fine Print

You need to be at least 18 years old to play Kentucky Lottery games.

Always remember that you can never win a prize for a raffle, lottery game or sweepstake that you never entered in the first place! If anyone contacts you out of the blue with news that you've won a Kentucky Lottery prize and you don't remember buying a ticket, be careful - you may have been selected as the target of a lottery scam.
