About the Vermont Lottery

Vermont Lottery logo

The Vermont Lottery officially began in October 1977 with the intention of producing “the maximum amount of net revenue consonant with the dignity of the state and the general welfare of the people.” Their first game went on sale in February 1978.

Today, the Vermont Lottery remains committed to contributing all proceeds to Vermont’s Education Fund.

Winning tickets can be redeemed up to 365 calendar days after the winning draw. For instant scratch games, winners have a full year after the official close of a game to claim their prize.

Can I buy VT Lottery tickets online?

No. Vermont Lottery tickets cannot be purchased through the internet. However, it is possible to obtain a subscription to Vermont Lottery’s Megabucks game, as well as Powerball and Mega Millions, through the mail as long as you have a Vermont mailing address.
