Connecticut (CT) Lottery General Information
The Connecticut Lottery Corporation was the first lottery in the nation to become a "quasi-public corporation." The CT Lottery
remains a state agency, but, because of its enterprise nature, the lottery is self-funded, and receives no operating money
from the state treasury.
Since the Lottery began in 1972, more than $14 billion in lottery tickets has been sold, and more than $5.1 billion of that
has been returned to the state's General Fund (used to support programs and services like education, health and human services,
and public safety).
Prizes to players totals more than $7.8 billion.
Games include more than 40 scratch tickets at any one time, plus drawing games including Cash5, Classic Lotto, Powerball,
Mid-Day3, Mid-Day4, Play3 and Play4.
Lottery president Otho Brown, CFO Linda Mlynarczyk, VP Frederick Rubelmann, and information systems manager Michael Logan
were murdered by a co-worker at the company headquarters in March 1998.
