South Dakota (SD) Lottery General Information

In November 1986, 60 percent of the electorate in a statewide referendum voted to amend the state constitution to allow for South Dakota Lottery.

In 1987, legislators authorized the creation of the South Dakota Lottery, its commission and the sale of instant tickets. On Sept. 30, 1987, six months after the legislation was signed into law, the Lottery sold its first instant ticket. The Lottery repaid its $1.5 million start-up loan plus interest to the state in three months.

The South Dakota Lottery’s third product line — lotto — was authorized by legislators in 1990. Soon afterward, the South Dakota Lottery joined the Multi-State Lottery Association to offer Lotto*America. In November 1990, the first Lotto*America ticket was sold. The multi-million dollar game was replaced by Powerball in April 1992. In April 1993, Dakota Cash became South Dakota’s very own cash lotto game. The South Dakota Lottery joined with Montana and Idaho in February 1994 to offer Tri-West Lotto. Tri-West was changed to Wild Card in February 1998 and revised as Wild Card 2 in May 1999. Daily Millions was added to the lotto line-up in September 1996. It was replaced with Cash 4 Life in March 1998, Rolldown in September 2000 and Hot Lotto in April 2002.

The Lottery is a totally self-funded agency. No tax dollars are used for its operation.

History of the South Dakota Lottery

The South Dakota Lottery was established in November 1986 by popular vote. Tickets went on sale on September 30, 1987. In 1989, the Video Lottery was established, but not without some dissatisfaction among South Dakota residents. At one point, the debate over the legality of the game resulted in a State Supreme Court case. However, the game has now been operating continuously since 1994.

South Dakota joined the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) in 1990 and started selling Lotto*America tickets in November of that year. In 1992, the game was replaced by Powerball. Dakota Cash tickets first went on sale in 1993 and the state began selling Mega Millions tickets in 2010.

Since 1987, the South Dakota Lottery has contributed over $2.1 billion to several different state funds. The recipients of lottery revenue are the State General Fund, the Property Tax Reduction Fund and the Capital Construction Fund.

Rules

Players must be at least 18 years old to play South Dakota Lottery games. Video lottery games can only be played by those who are 21 and older.
