The Oklahoma State Legislature, in 2003 approved the lottery proposal for its presentation before the people. In 2004, the proposal was accepted, which lead to the creation of the Lottery Commission and a Lottery Trust Fund.
The official Oklahoma State Lottery began its sales of lottery tickets in 2005, and soon celebrated its first Powerball winner in 2006. The mission of the lottery is to maximize revenue generation for public education through the creation and marketing of fun and entertaining lottery products consistent with the highest levels of service, integrity, and public accountability.
Oklahoma Lottery introduced Cash 5 in 2005, with three drawings a week, which was changed to nightly draws in July 2009, and since then the game has been producing a considerable number of winners.
