Indiana Lottery Results Powerball
Known by locals as the Hoosier Lottery, the Indiana State Lottery is governed by the State Lottery Commission of Indiana. The Indiana State Lottery awards millions of dollars not only to the resident players of the state, but across the nation as well.
History of the Indiana Lottery
The Indiana State Lottery came into existence on October 13, 1989. The citizens of Indiana voted “yes” to the lottery on a 1988 referendum that won by a 62% majority. By May 1989, the general assembly ratified the Lottery Act and by October of that same year, the scratch-off sales began. It was not until April 1990 that the first draw game began, called Lotto Cash. From there, it was not long before the first Powerball winner took home a jackpot – this happened in spring 1992.
Indiana Lottery Proceeds
Often, the innate goal of having a lottery is to “raise money for the state of Indiana and its residents.” With the thirteen lottery games offered by the Hoosier Lottery, there are plenty of profits to benefit the state and its residents.
Lottery winners in the state of Indiana are responsible for the excise taxes being lowered for residents of the state. Additionally, it is due in part to the lottery system that funding has become available to bolster the pension and disability money for Indiana police and firefighters. Furthermore, the state of Indiana relies on the profits made from the lottery system to fund other projects within the state as needed.
For example, aside from paying off the winners and the retailers, the profits made from the Hoosier Lottery go towards the Teacher’s Retirement Fund, as well as the disability funds for retired police officers and firefighters.
