About the Tennessee Lottery

As a relative newcomer to the lottery, Tennessee sold its first tickets in 2004. Since then, the Volunteer State has expanded the variety of games, and now offers instant win options, and eight different lottery draws. The Tennessee State Lottery has successfully raised over $5.25 billion for various educational programs since its inception. It has also provided more than one million scholarships at higher educational institutions. The vision and mission of this state’s lottery include:


  • Providing players with entertaining games 
  • Delivering exceptional service to its customers 
  • Funding vital educational initiatives in Tennessee
  • Operating with the highest business standards

Local families and students gain the most benefits from the Tennessee Lottery. Each year, it funds more than 125,000 scholarships, while winners and authorized sellers also reap financial rewards.


The TN Lottery employs more than 160 people and has a network of almost 5,000 approved retailers. The Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation was established on June 11, 2003. It’s solely responsible for operating the games and administering the proceeds to benefit the state’s residents.
