Idaho Lottery is governed by Idaho State and is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). Public initiative for lottery approval was first passed in 1986 and was declared unconstitutional by district judge the following March. Later voters approved it and finally, it was launched on July 19, 1989. Hence, the first sale from the Arizona Lottery was on July 1, 1988. Since its beginning, Idaho Lottery has sold over $1.8 billion in tickets and transferred over $437.3 million to fund Idaho public schools and buildings. Weekly Grand was launched on August 18, 2011, and has been contributing ever since.
