History of the Missouri Lottery
The Missouri Lottery sold its first tickets on January 20th, 1986 and has been going strong ever since. Powerball tickets first went on sale in 1992 and the lottery began participating in Mega Millions in January 2010.
Revenue raised through ticket sales has been allocated to public education programs since 1994. Since that time, over $4 billion has been distributed to educational initiatives in Missouri.

Playing Missouri Lottery Games
Lotto is Missouri's flagship draw game that starts off with a minimum jackpot of $1 million. Drawings take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:59 PM. You pay $1 for two playlines, and all you have to do after that is pick six numbers from 1 to 44 or choose a Quick Pick to have them randomly generated for you. Match all six numbers drawn to win the jackpot! Here's how it works:
|Match 6 of 6||Jackpot||1 in 3,529,526|
|Match 5 of 6||Estimated $715||1 in 15,480||Match 4 of 6||Estimated $29||1 in 335||Match 3 of 6||Free Quick Pick Ticket||1 in 21|
