Each year, millions of dollars are returned to players in prizes; Maine’s local businesses of all sizes receive millions of dollars in commissions and bonuses for selling lottery products. Over the last 5 years, the Maine State Lottery has transferred over $50 million annually to the programs and services supported by the State’s General Fund.
