The first ever Wisconsin lottery tickets of Wisconsin lottery, or WI lottery as we commonly know it these days, went on sale on September 14, 1988.
The games which were approved for the big launch on this day included the Match 3, which is a well-known instant game, and is played in all the major lotteries of the United States of America. Another game whose tickets went on sale when the WI lottery was started was known as Wisconsin Red, which is a pull-tab game.
WHO DOES THE WISCONSIN LOTTERY FUND?
The Wisconsin lottery, ever since its launch in 1988, has distributed all the profits, benefits and proceeds of the entire lottery amongst the following important sectors:
About 56.68% of the money, which equals to almost $7.88 billion is given to the winners of the prizes. It is well known that even before the Wisconsin lottery results are announced, the winners of all the prizes would get at least 50% from all the money.
Then, we have all the businesses of Wisconsin. About 6.31% of all the gained profits, which means around $877.8 million is awarded to all the sellers of the state, which takes care of their wages.
Keeping operational costs in mind, it is a fact that about $955.9 Million, which makes up almost 6.87% of the total money, is given to the staff which is successfully running the lottery institution of WI.
The remaining 30.13%, which makes up more than $4.19 billion, is for the eligible taxpayers of the state and this money is returned to them whenever the time for property tax credits comes.
We can say that ever since its launch, WI lottery results have managed to make up more than $13.9 billion in total, and it is a rule that 93% of this money is returned back to the general public residing in the state. This money is for the good of everyone in Wisconsin.
