ESTABLISHMENT OF VERMONT LOTTERY
The Vermont Lottery Commission was established in the midst of the 1977 session of the General Assembly, according to the Public Act No. 82. In the legislation that enabled this lottery, the written purpose of the VT lottery and the reason behind its creation was to “produce the maximum amount of net revenue consonant with the dignity of the state and the general welfare of the people.”
On Valentine’s Day, 14th February 1978, to be specific, Green Mountain Game’s first ever ticket went on sale. This was a game which offered weekly draws. Following this, almost four months later on June 20, 1978, Scratch ‘N Match (Vermont’s first instant ticket game) sold its ticket. Two years later on 10th November, 1980, Pick 3 was launched as the first online VT lottery game.
All benefits created with regards to the VT lottery numbers were devoted for utilization by Vermonts General Fund, from February 1978 to July 1998. Then, it was ordered by the VT Legislature that all benefits created and achieved by the VT lottery should go to Vermont’s Education Fund.
As of today, the VT lottery is one which is known for having the littlest staffs of literally all lotteries in the United States of America, comprising of only 21 full-time representatives who are mostly delegated by the state’s Governor and affirmed by the Vermont Senate. But the state lottery still has a hold on keeping every single player happy and content.
The Vermont lottery results can make literally any winner’s life amazing. Especially when it has such a wide collection of lottery games to choose from. VT lottery offers instant ticket games such as Joker’s Jest and Queen’s Quest for $5 and the winner can win up to $20,000 if their numbers match the winning numbers.
