For more than 40 years, the DC Lottery has been a thread in the cultural fabric of the District of Columbia. Awarding  more than $4.4 billion in prizes to our players; transferring $2.3 billion to the District’s General Fund in support of essential city services and helping local nonprofits raise $136.5 million in support.
