Virginia Lottery Blog!

Welcome to our new Virginia Lottery blog

The Virginia Lottery creates excitement, encourages friendly competition and supports Virginians’ love of games.

For over 30 years, we’ve been working and playing together, and building an amazing organization committed to growing, giving back and having fun. Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products rather than tax dollars, the Virginia Lottery generates approximately $1.6 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools.

Our new blog is the ultimate destination for a fresh look at the Virginia Lottery. From the newest products to stories from winners and retailers and behind-the-scenes looks at what the Lottery does for K-12 public education, this blog will give you an insider’s look into everything going on at the Lottery. Check back often for the latest news on games, promotions and more!
