dollars to enhance oregon's watershed
On April 25, 1985, the Oregon Lottery sold its first game, the Pot of Gold Scratch-it.
Over the next 30 years, thanks to the many games that followed the Pot of Gold Scratch-it, the Oregon Lottery provided over $9 billion to help fund the things that Oregonians care about – our public schools, our economy, and our state parks and natural resources.
These are just some of the stories about how Lottery dollars are doing good things for Oregon.
