History of the Vermont Lottery
The Vermont Lottery was established in 1977 after the state's General Assembly passed Public Act 82. The first game, called the Green Mountain Game, started ticket sales on February 14th, 1978 and the first instant game debuted in June of that same year.
Vermont joined Powerball in 2003 and Mega Millions tickets went on sale in January 2010. Up until May 2014, Vermont residents could also play Hot Lotto until May 2014, but the game has since been discontinued in the state. Revenue from Vermont Lottery ticket sales is allocated to the state's Education Fund.

Claiming Vermont Lottery Prizes
If you've won a Vermont Lottery prize, make sure that you redeem it in good time - you have 365 days from the date of the drawing or one year from the announced end of game date (for instant games) to claim a prize.
Prizes up to $499 can be redeemed from any authorized retailer or at the Vermont Lottery head offices in Berlin (the Vermont one, not the German one). Prizes worth between $500 and $5,000 can be claimed at the Berlin office or at any of the People's United Bank locations in Vermont. If you're a big prize winner and have just picked up a prize worth $5,000 or more, then you need to claim your windfall at the Berlin office.
Were you lucky enough to win $5,000 or more? Your winnings will be subject to a federal withholding tax of 25 percent and Vermont state taxes of six percent.
The Fine Print
You need to be at least 18 years old to play Vermont Lottery games. Play safe - keep in mind that you can't win a prize for a lottery game that you haven't even entered. Anyone who contacts you by mail, email or phone with news that you've won a lottery prize may be trying to scam you. Read the scams page to find out more.
