North Dakota

Background

North Dakota has a state lottery, tribal government gaming, and charitable gaming (bingo, sports pools, poker, twenty-one, and raffles).

Lottery

Development: The Lottery is unique compared to all other state lotteries because it may only conduct multi-state online games. The constitution restricts the Lottery to multi-state games. The law restricts the Lottery to online games. Therefore, the Lottery may not conduct common in-state lotto games, instant ticket games, or pick 3 or 4 numbers games.

Beneficiaries: After payments for prizes and operating expenes, lottery proceeds go to the Compulsive Gambling Prevention and Treatment Fund (1%), Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force Grant Fund (2%), and the State General Fund (23%).

Total sales reflects all money wagered on the lottery in the fiscal year in question. Prize liability is the total amount of prize money paid back to winners. Net Revenue (before operating expenses) is the total revenue minus vendor and retailer commissions and prize payouts. Prize and net revenue percentages are taken from the total revenues.
