About the Maine Lottery
From 1974 on, this state lottery is a source of chances to win big. The first tickets which went on sale were dedicated to the game Great Outdoors. Up till now, a bunch of new lotteries has been made accessible for the residents of Maine. What is notable, the first multi-state lottery was established thanks to cooperation between three various states, including Maine.
As regards the selection of games available, the bigger part of the attention goes to the big games. Of course, Maine, like every other state, has its own local lotteries. But the most popular and with the biggest prizes are lotteries like Mega Millions and Powerball. In other words – multi-state lotteries. They had their launch in 1990 and 2004. They are the ones which provide you with chances to win big on a regular basis.
One of the most remarkable jackpots in the history is the one that went to Venison Turner and was worth $300,000. It’s not exceptional in terms of the cash itself, but it managed to arouse some controversies. Normally, the pictures for the media are shot using a fake check to protect the personalities of the winner. But this man was in the photos holding a real check in his hands. This is why his social security number and address was revealed to the public unintentionally. He was lucky enough that no one decided to take advantage of knowing that data. The Lottery took appropriate steps in order to prevent such situations from happening.
Other good games for the residents of the state of Maine are Hot Lotto, Megabucks and Weekly Grand. And the second one of those was the most popular with a large number of players and high jackpots.
To show you how much money is being given away in Maine, we will tell you that over $132,000,000 is won day by day. Just like every other state lottery, the main goal of raising funds are good causes. Different programs are donated – the example may be Outdoor Heritage Fund.
