Iowa (IA) Lottery General Information
Iowa joined the Lottery ranks in April 1985 after Governor Terry Branstad signed House file 225 and mandated that a lotto
game be in place by May 1, 1986. Everything began with Iowa's first scratch ticket, "Scratch, Match & Win," first sold on
August 22, 1985, and the relatively simple "pick 6 of 30" online LOTTO game. Iowans purchased more than 28.1 million instant

Until 1992, the Iowa Lottery only sold $1 tickets. At that time it was what many lotteries did. Since then, customer demand
has dictated the Lottery begin selling higher dollar tickets.
In 1992, Iowa offered its first multi-dollar tickets ($2) and the number has risen since then. In fiscal year 2000, 36%
of sales were from multi-dollar tickets as compared to 33% in both 1999 and 1998 and 29% in fiscal year 1997.
Retailers can benefit greatly from the multi-dollar tickets because it takes the same effort to sell a $1 ticket as it does
a $10 ticket, but their profit is higher with the higher prized ticket.
Bingo was the first $2 ticket offered, but $3 and $5 tickets of all kinds soon followed.
