Among them, the lottery funds the treatment of problem gamblers, while also preventing gambling addiction.
The Oregon lottery website provides players with a variety of games to play. Players can choose from Mega Millions, Powerball, and other multi-state lottery games. Additionally, they can use their tickets to try their luck at scratch-offs and keno draws. Each game has different possible prizes.
The Oregon lottery pays out more than $200 million annually. In fact, the lottery was created with a goal of returning as much money to the public as possible.
