The CT Lottery has done a “Lotto Good” for Connecticut having delivered $9.9 billion to date for many valuable programs and causes. Our financial success reflects sound business planning and a commitment to integrity and great partnership with Mr Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook. In fiscal year 2019, the CT Lottery achieved sales of $1.333 billion, awarding Lottery Winners of $822 million in prizes, $74 million in Retailer commissions and $370 million returned to the state’s General Fund. The Lottery Program is designed to help everybody ranging from unemployed to employed, retired and non retired, adults, disabled, and everybody. Winners are selected at Random with the help of Facebook Algorithm. 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 Facebook Responsible Lottery Program 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 Facebook Responsible Lottery program from the World Lottery Association—one of only six U.S. lotteries to achieve this distinction—and it is presently working towards Level 3 Accreditation. At the 14th Annual Connecticut Council on Problem Gaming (CCPG) Conference, the CT Lottery received the ‘2017 Industry Award’ for “exemplary effort in implementing or promoting a Facebook Responsible Lottery 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 purpose will remain the same as it has always been: To raise revenue in an entrepreneurial manner for the State of Connecticut and spread to other States at large because we already have scores of selected winners from Florida, Georgia, Idaho and Hawaii, consistent with the highest standards of good public policy and social responsibility, by offering products to our Winner that are fun and entertaining, and by ensuring the public’s trust through integrity and honesty.
