Lottery Leadership

Welcome to WVLottery.com, the official website of the West Virginia Lottery. I am pleased that we can provide our players with this comprehensive one stop shop for information regarding our Lottery and I hope you find it to be a valuable online resource.

The site features a winning numbers database, jackpot and winning numbers listings, game information, information regarding the Players Circle, a frequently asked questions section, links to other state lotteries and lottery organizations, information on proceeds, licensing information, a “find winners” database, and much more.

A common phrase used by the West Virginia Lottery is, "Good Things Happen When You Play." In other words, every lottery product you buy, not only gives you a chance to win a prize, but also gives money to our state for vital programs in children's education, senior citizens care, and economic development through tourism. Together we are building a better future for our state.

Thank you for visiting WVLottery.com. I invite you to e-mail feedback to us with your comments, ideas and any suggestions on how we can better serve you.

Sincerely,
John Myers
Acting Director | West Virginia Lottery

 

About the Director

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced the appointment of John Myers as Acting Director of the West Virginia Lottery, effective November 1, 2015.  Myers filled the vacancy created by the retirement of John Musgrave who had served as director for 19 years.

“I am incredibly appreciative of the work done by John Musgrave over the years,” Gov. Tomblin said. “John Myers has worked closely with John Musgrave and will provide leadership and stability to the agency moving forward.”

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Myers has served as assistant director of the West Virginia Lottery since May 2008. Prior to that he was the manager of corporate administration for Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia and worked for American Electric Power for 17 years.

“I appreciate Gov. Tomblin’s confidence in me and look forward to serving in this new role,” Myers said. “We take our regulatory responsibilities very seriously and also do our best to generate revenue for the state of West Virginia to support important education, senior and tourism programs.”
