States That Rely on the Lottery the Most

Washington Post: “In South Dakota, Oregon and Georgia, such games accounted for more than 5 percent of state revenues in the 2014 fiscal year. Other states could more easily take a pass: lotteries account for less than 1 percent of revenues in 11 states and less than 2 percent of revenues in another dozen states, as shown in the map below, which is based on their analysis.”

  1. Like the federal government, state governments also have a host of “mandated” expenditures, and thus their discretion when allocating state revenues is limited. Therefore, even a state that relies on a lottery for only 1% of its overall state budget would be likely to see some unpleasant reductions in state spending if the money from the lottery suddenly were to dry up.
