Where Does the Money Go?

A minimum 45 percent of the revenue generated from ticket sales is used to pay out prizes, although on average a much greater proportion goes towards the prize fund. A maximum of 15 percent of ticket revenue is used to cover costs and expenses, and the remaining money is transferred to the state’s General Fund for public programs and initiatives across the state. The table below shows how revenues are split on average:

Aread of Spending Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 72.5%
General Fund 19.8%
Commissions and Bonuses 5.8%
Administrative Expenses 1.9%
This table uses financial data from 2009-2018, based on revenue from and expenditure on all MA Lottery products

Funds from the lottery are not allocated to any specific programs or areas, and each of the 351 towns and cities in the state that are eligible to receive a share of the money can decide how to spend it. Examples of how funds have previously been spent include improvements to roads, schools and education services, and snow removal. Nearly $10 billion has been distributed since 2009.
