Hot Numbers

Kentucky Lottery came into force in April 1989 after 60% of voters cast ballots in favor of it in November 1988. The sale of lottery tickets began on April 4, 1989, with the first day sales of over $5 million for the two available instant games. Kentucky 5 Card Cash is one of the hot favorite lotteries played in the state of Kentucky. The game replaced the 3 Line Lotto game after its final drawing held on February 10, 2012. The structure of the game follows a poker theme and allows players to instantly win if the five cards make up a ranked poker hand. The Lottery encapsulates some other highly renowned and rewarding games like Powerball, Mega Millions, Lucky For Life, Cash Ball 225, Cash Pop, Keno, and many more fulfilling the dreams of many to become a lottery winner.

About The Commission

The Kentucky Lottery began in April 1989. Wallace G. Wilkinson, the then governor, touted the introduction of a state lottery in a heavily funded campaign that ended up being one of the biggest gubernatorial victories in Kentucky history.

The mission of the Kentucky Lottery is to fund education for all Kentuckians. This is done through lottery proceeds funding college scholarship and grant programs with over $3.3 billion in funding since 1999, including every dime ever awarded in the popular KEES Scholarship program.
