The Puerto Rico Lottery (Spanish: Lotería de Puerto Rico) is the oldest modern lottery in the United States. The system began in 1934 and is currently operated by the Puerto Rico Treasury Department.[1]

Puerto Rico's lottery includes daily pick 2, pick 3, and pick 4 games, weekly regular lottery draws on Wednesdays (50 times annually), and two special draws, each prior to Mother's Day and Christmas. The lottery uses equipment for the sale of electronic lottery tickets from Scientific Games Corporation.[2] Powerball has been added to Puerto Rico's lottery. Mega Millions is not currently offered; there are no known plans for the Lottery to offer it.

The lottery also offers "instant" scratch-off games, which were introduced in 2010.
