Beneficiary Information

Lottery proceeds have three main purposes in Iowa. They provide support for veterans; help for a variety of significant projects through the state general fund; and backing for the Vision Iowa program.

Since July 2008, a portion of lottery proceeds have been dedicated to the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund, where they are used to support our state’s veterans and their families. The proceeds from two instant-scratch games and two pull-tab games each year are directed into the Veterans Trust Fund. The Iowa Lottery estimates that the games will provide about $2 million to $3 million in proceeds annually for the Veterans Trust Fund.

The Iowa Veterans Trust Fund was created to provide assistance to qualified veterans to help pay for expenses such as job training or college tuition assistance; some dental, vision and hearing assistance; and individual or family counseling programs.

Retailer Bonus Structure

Retailers receive a base commission rate of 5.5% on the sale of all lotto tickets sold (plus a "sliding scale" incentive).
