About the Georgia Lottery
In November 1992, The Georgia Lottery Corporation (GLC) was formed to operate the new state lottery. The lottery's mission was to contribute to funding education in the state as per the Lottery for Education Act.
Since its launch, the lottery has seen net sales of over $80 billion and raised more than $21 billion for education. The lottery has funded college scholarships and tuition grants, with over 1.8 million students attending local colleges with HOPE scholarships. Another beneficiary of lottery contributions is the Georgia Prekindergarten Program for all four-year-olds in the state - over 1.6 million children have attended the program. In addition, the state's public schools have received more than $1.8 billion in capital outlay and technology funding.
The GLC has about 370 staff across its eight district offices. Around 8,700 authorized retailers statewide sell lottery tickets.
