Vermont Gaming Summary

Background

Vermont has a state lottery and charitable gaming.

Lottery

Development: In 1976 a referendum was held regarding the establishment of a state run lottery. Sixty-six percent of those casting ballots voted in favor of the referendum. Public Act No. 82 established the Vermont Lottery Commission during the 1977 session of the General Assembly and provided for its termination on June 30, 1980 unless the 1979 Assembly authorized continuation

Beneficiaries: From February 1978 to July 1998, all profits generated by the Vermont Lottery were dedicated for use by the state’s General Fund. In July 1998 the Vermont Legislature mandated that all profits from the Vermont Lottery go to the state’s Education Fund.
