Minnesota (MN) Lottery Results and Winning Numbers

The Minnesota Lottery began operations in 1990 after voters approved a referendum to create a state lottery. Tickets for the lottery’s first game, Match Three, went on sale on April 17, 1990. Sixty percent of Minnesota Lottery revenue benefits the state’s general fund, with a small portion of proceeds used to offset the cost of problem gambling programs, amounting to about $2 million annually.

Minnesota offers lottery players three in-state draw games, Pick 3, Gopher 5, and North 5, as well as multi-state lottery games Powerball, Mega Millions, and Lotto America. Users can also purchase scratch games, Print-N-Play games, and raffles. Minnesota Lottery scratch games also let players enter their non-winning tickets to participate in 2nd Chance drawings to win additional cash and prizes.

About the Minnesota Lottery

Minnesota lawmakers debated for several years before putting the decision to create a state lottery before voters, who approved amending the constitution with 59% of the vote in 1988. Two years later, citizens would vote to dedicate 40% of Minnesota Lottery proceeds to create a trust fund for the environment and natural resources.

Minnesota Lottery players can enjoy their favorite in-state and multi-state draw games online by visiting Jackpocket.com or using the Jackpocket mobile app. Users can automatically order tickets online and participate in giveaways to win lucrative prizes.

Minnesota Lottery customers can contact them at (651) 635-8273 during regular business hours or by email at cs.support@mnlottery.com. Players can also visit any Minnesota Lottery office, although it’s strongly recommended to make an appointment beforehand.
