This Day in Georgia History

June 29, 1993

Georgia Lottery Launched

The new Georgia Lottery, provided for by the Georgia Lottery for Education Act of 1992 and approved by the voters in a constitutional amendment that fall, was officially launched. Then-governor Zell Miller, who had made an education lottery one of the top issues in his campaign, bought the first ticket. And, in case you wonder, he didn’t win anything.
