The South Dakota lottery was created in 1986 after 60% of voters approved a constitutional amendment allowing for its operation. The bill was signed the following year and the first instant tickets went on sale within six months. Then in 1990 the first draw-based game was introduced, quickly followed by the Powerball and Megamillions games, after South Dakota became a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association. Net proceeds are reserved for education, the development of natural resources and the promotion of responsible gaming.

The Rhode Island Lottery was created through a constitutional amendment in 1973 which led to the passing of legislation the following year. Unlike many US states, its purpose was not to fund education. Instead, the intention was to raise money relating to automobile taxation. The scope has changed somewhat over the years with the State General Fund distributing money to good causes in education, health care, the environment and public safety. Currently, there are only three multi-state games offered: Powerball, Mega Millions, and Lucky for Life.

The Pennsylvania lottery was set up by the state’s general assembly in late 1971 and the first tickets went on sale in March of 1972. Its original purpose was to provide tax relief for seniors although this has since expanded to include other social areas including reduced-fare transit, low-cost prescriptions and drug programs. The Pennsylvania lottery is unique in that it is the only US state to designate all lottery proceeds to programs which benefit older citizens. Over $20 billion has been generated for this purpose since the lottery began.

Oklahoma has been permitted to run lotteries since 2004 when voters approved the introduction of a state-based game. As a result, a lottery commission was set up with the purpose of administering and supervising operations. Since then, Oklahoma has become a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association which entitles it to offer state-wide games such as Mega Millions and Power Ball. Like so many US states, education is a big priority with a large portion of ticket proceeds directed to various projects in that area.

The Missouri Lottery began operations in 1986 two years after votes overwhelmingly approved the repeal of legislation prohibiting lotteries. It’s overseen by a five-member commission and, as with most US states, offers a wide variety of draw-based and instant games. Ticket proceeds were originally directed to a general revenue fund until a law was passed in 1994 requiring funds to be distributed exclusively to education programs. The Missouri Lottery is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association and is the 23^{rd} lottery in the United States.

The New York Lottery is one of the oldest in the United States and dates back to 1966. It was created after voters unanimously approved a constitutional amendment authorising a government-run lottery.

In addition to the numerous instant scratch-cards, draw-based games such as Mega Millions, Power Ball and Cash for Life are also available.
