About Us

The Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages & Lottery Operations (BABLO) is proud of its commitment to providing our state with superior products and services while providing top notch customer service to the constituents that we serve.

The Maine State Lottery offers fun and exciting lottery draw games including Tri-State Megabucks, Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto, Lucky for Life, Tri-State Pick 3 and Pick 4 and Tri-State Gimme5 as well as an extensive array of instant scratch lottery tickets. Since its inception, the Maine State Lottery has transferred over $1 billion to the programs and services supported by the State’s General Fund. The Bureau has responsibility for the pricing, listing and delisting of spirits and licensing and enforcement of all liquor licensees throughout Maine.

Through the assistance of the State Liquor and Lottery Commission, the Bureau effectively regulates the beverage alcohol industry in Maine by insuring responsible business practices by agency liquor stores, beer and wine wholesalers, on-premise licensees (bars and restaurants) while creating a favorable economic climate.

The Bureau takes its responsibility seriously relative to the enforcement of Maine’s liquor laws. Prohibiting the sales to and the consumption by minors of beverage alcohol is a major focus. The Bureau works closely with Maine Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services to create social responsibility and awareness programs for alcohol and gambling.
