History of the Wisconsin Lottery
The Wisconsin Lottery started selling tickets on September 14th, 1988. An instant game, "Match 3" and a pull tab game called "Wisconsin Red" were the first lottery games on offer. In 1989, the Lottery launched the Money Game TV Show, which gave lucky players the chance to win big on local television.
Powerball tickets went on sale in the Badger State in April 1992 and the state joined Mega Millions in January 2010. Since 1988, the Wisconsin Lottery has paid out over $6 billion in prizes and has distributed over $3 billion in property tax credits for state residents.
