About Nebraska Lottery

The Nebraska Lottery began in 1993 and was the 37th state to have lottery in the United States. The lottery offers a variety of Nebraska Lottery games for lottery players in the state, including scratch-off games, draw games, and multi-state games.

The NE Lottery sells $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, and $20 Scratch tickets, with prizes ranging from a free $1 ticket up to $200,000 cash. The Nebraska Lottery sells lottery games including Lucky for Life, Powerball, Mega Millions, 2by2, MyDaY, Nebraska Pick 3, and Nebraska Pick 5. MyDaY, Nebraska Pick 5, and Nebraska Pick 3 are Nebraska games only. Powerball and 2by2 are operated on behalf of member lotteries by the Multi-State Lottery Association, and Lucky for Life and Mega Millions are operated by their member lotteries.

Lottery drawings for 2by2, Lucky for Life, and Nebraska-exclusive lotto games are held every night. Powerball drawings are held three nights a week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and Mega Millions lottery results come out two times per week on Tuesday and Friday. For an extra dollar, you can play the Megaplier for Mega Millions and the Power Play for Powerball to increase your lottery winnings.

 In FY 2022, lottery ticket sales were $202.3 million. Proceeds transferred to the beneficiary funds were $49.4 million – the largest amount ever transferred during a fiscal year since the Lottery began in 1993. The proceed of the state of Nebraska is used to support state programs, including education, natural resources, and the operation of the state fair. The Nebraska Lottery transferred a total of $49.4 million in lottery proceeds to its beneficiary funds between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022. This is the largest amount transferred during a fiscal year since the Lottery began in 1993.

“Whether it’s a Scratch game or Mega Millions or Powerball, when you buy a lottery ticket, you’re generating funds for good causes in our state,” said Nebraska Lottery Director Brian Rockey. If you have a winning ticket by matching the winning numbers than that would benefit you and your family.   

Amendment 4, passed by Nebraska voters in November 2004, established the following distribution formula:

• Education (44.5%)*, as directed by the Legislature, is currently distributed to the Nebraska Education Improvement Fund.

• Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund (44.5%).

• Nebraska State Fair (10%).

• Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund (1%), plus the first $500,000 in fund proceeds each fiscal year.
