About the Minnesota Lottery

Minnesota Lottery logo

The Minnesota Lottery is official lottery for the state of Minnesota. Its mission is to raise money for programs that positively impact the lives of all Minnesotans. Since 1990, the Lottery has provided close to $3 Billion in funding for programs that preserve the state’s natural resources, improve education, health care, public safety, and so on.

Minnesota Lottery Tickets

Minnesota Lottery tickets are available at any authorized retailer within the state.

Winning tickets are valid for one year after the winning draw or game end date. Winners must claim their winnings within that time frame or forfeit their prize. In which case, the money would go to Minnesota’s General Fund or, for multi-state games, back to other participating states.

Can I buy MN Lottery tickets online?

No. Minnesota state legislature has made it impossible to but Minnesota Lottery tickets over the internet.
