The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first instant tickets on Jan. 20, 2004. At the end of its first fiscal year, after just five months and 12 days of ticket sales, the Lottery had transferred more than $123 million to the Tennessee Lottery for Education account, as well as more than $2 million for after-school programs. All Tennessee Lottery profits will go to pay for specific education programs in the state, which initially include HOPE Scholarships.
