The CT Lottery has done a “Lotto Good” for Connecticut, having delivered $10 billion to date for many valuable programs and causes. Our financial success reflects sound business planning and a commitment to integrity. In fiscal year 2019, the CT Lottery achieved sales of $1.333 billion, $74 million in Retailer commissions, and returned $370 million to the state’s General Fund.
Our partnership with the 2,800 Retailers who sell our tickets is critical. The revenue our Retailers earn from the sale of Lottery products helps to keep their profits and workforce stable. Of equal importance are Connecticut’s local businesses. We purchase services and products from community resources whenever possible and will continue to do so to the best of our ability.
The CT Lottery is committed to a variety of corporate responsibility initiatives. A strong commitment to responsible gambling is deeply embedded in our everyday culture. Demonstrating the Lottery’s ability to meet the highest standards in our industry for corporate and social responsibility, the CT Lottery achieved Level 2 Certification in 2012 for its responsible gambling program from the World Lottery Association. At the 14th Annual Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling (CCPG) Conference, the CT Lottery received the ‘2017 Industry Award’ for “exemplary effort in implementing or promoting a responsible gambling program.” The CT Lottery was also recognized by The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) for “Verified” responsible gambling framework and independent verification program on January 25, 2017.
As we focus on the future, the Lottery’s mission will remain the same as it has always been: To raise revenue in an entrepreneurial manner for the State of Connecticut, consistent with the highest standards of good public policy and social responsibility, by offering products to our players that are fun and entertaining, and by ensuring the public’s trust through integrity and honesty.
