Lottery Mission

The Lottery’s Operational Values


Engraved upon impervious black granite, standing sentinel in the lobby of the Debbs Potts Oregon State Lottery Commission Building are these words:

"Operate a Lottery with the highest standards of security and integrity to earn maximum profits for the people of Oregon commensurate with the public good."
