State Fun Facts
In 2003, the North Dakota Lottery was created as a result of a constitutional amendment, approved in November 2002, allowing the state to conduct and participate in multi-state online games with one or more other government-authorized lotteries.
Today, the NDL has teamed with 400 retailers located in convenience stores, super markets, and a variety of other businesses. Retailers are located in 125 cities and towns. The NDL supports five multi-state on-line games: Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto, Wild Card 2 and 2by2.
