How many lotteries are there in the world?

Good question!

World lotteriesConsidering, in North America that 43 U.S. states (Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Utah, Wyoming and Nevada do not have lottos*), all Canadian provinces, the District of Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands all run government-operated lotteries, and that elsewhere in the world official lottos exist in at least 100 countries (on every inhabited continent), the short answer is… a LOT!

The WLA alone lists 144 member lotteries.

The long answer, as of January 2013: about 166. They can be categorized as follows:

  • Africa: ± 4
  • North and South America: ± 76 (Many countries/states/provinces also participate in multi-jurisdictional lotteries)
  • Asia: ± 25
  • Australasia: ± 4
  • Europe: ± 57 (Many countries also participate in EuroMillions, and other multi-jurisdictional lotteries)

We also list many of these lotteries in our handy Lotto Directory.
