Who We Are
The Fun BeginsThe year was 1986. Halley’s Comet flew by, Maverick and Goose played sand volleyball, people were walking like Egyptians and the South Dakota Lottery was voted into existence.
Where The Money Goes
The South Dakota Lottery is run like any other business. We take in revenue, we account for expenses, and whatever is left over is our net income. However, unlike other businesses, our net income goes back to South Dakota to pay for things important to South Dakotans.
You can claim a prize, ask questions or send us flowers at our main office in Pierre, or our regional offices in Sioux Falls and Rapid City.
