Posted May 30, 2018 06:17:23The state of Virginia has a $2 billion lottery, and that number could jump to $3.8 billion, depending on how the state’s Lottery Administrator and Secretary of State run things over the next year.
Here are the six biggest lottery-related stories that are happening right now in Virginia.1.
The 2017 Virginia Lotteries Wins Are Not Complete.
The Virginia Lotters Association, which represents the state lottery industry, said on May 30 that the state is in “active discussions” with a few other states about a potential $2.6 billion increase in the number of slots that can be drawn from the 2018 lottery, which could go into effect in 2020.
It’s not clear if that would mean an increase of more than $400 million or if a larger increase is in the works.
The association’s CEO, Chris McBride, told CNNMoney that “at this time we are not yet ready to share details of the discussions.”
But Virginia is expected to see a bigger increase than $2 million over the 2018 slot jackpot, because the Virginia Lotting Commission expects to issue a final decision this week.
The state lottery will be in charge of running the lottery, the Virginia Supreme Court has ruled, and the commission is in charge.
McBride said the commission has been working with the lottery’s two largest states, Kentucky and Virginia, to finalize the proposed 2018 increase.
McBrides told CNN that the commission plans to send out final reports and a letter to the state legislature by the end of June.2.
The 2018 Virginia Ticket Lottery Won’t Be Closed.
The state lottery announced on May 31 that it is planning to open its lottery in 2019.

The lottery is expected open in 2020, with an opening day of April 30, 2021.3.
Virginia Will Be One of the Biggest States to Have a Lottery Win.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced on Thursday that Virginia will host a $4 billion, 10-year lottery from 2020 through 2026, and Virginia will become the fifth state to host a state lottery with a win.
The first was in Texas in the 1980s, and in 1999 was the largest state lottery in history, with $5.7 billion.4.
