Our games are intended to be a fun, low-cost form of entertainment. Plus, you get the added benefit of helping fund Florida education. We know that most of our players enjoy playing our games for the fun and excitement of it, but for others, gaming of any kind can create a problem. We aim to help those players, too.
In November of 1986, 64 percent of Kansas voters approved a constitutional amendment authorizing the creation of a state lottery. The Kansas Legislature passed the "Kansas Lottery Act" in 1987, and the Kansas Lottery was established. The mission of the Kansas Lottery is to produce the maximum amount of revenue possible for the State of Kansas while ensuring the integrity of all games.
The Kansas Lottery sells $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, $20 and $30 scratch tickets and $1 and $2 instant pull tab games. In addition, Kansas Lottery players enjoy Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto America, Lucky for Life, Super Kansas Cash, Pick 3, 2by2, Keno and Racetrax draw games. Kansas Lottery products are sold at approximately 1,750 retail locations.
The Kansas Lottery is headed by an Executive Director who is appointed by the governor.
Since its inception, the Kansas Lottery has encouraged its players to play responsibly. We don't want any player to spend more than he or she can easily afford to lose. The Lottery's "Play Responsibly" messages are located on a variety of materials, with the goal being to provide each player with immediate, easy access to problem gambling assistance. For many years, the Kansas Lottery has contributed $80,000 a year to the Problem Gambling Grant Fund. Primarily, this money has paid for the Kansas Problem Gambling HelpLine. With the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act, an additional two percent of net revenue from state-owned and -operated casino gaming goes to the Problem Gambling and Addictions Grant Fund, which may be used to treat not only problem gambling, but alcoholism, drug abuse and other addictive behaviors.
