Multi-State Lottery Association
Who is the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) and how does it affect US Lottery games and players?
For those who have heard of the "Powerball" lottery, then you been introduced to the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), even if you didn't realize it before. Filled with history and including a majority of the 50 states in America, this association is a heavy-weight in the lottery business.
Founded in 1987, MUSL is a non-profit association that is owned and operated by the collective's members. Its headquarters are located in Urbandale, Iowa.
Notably, each member of the MUSL association retains its profits from the individual lotteries they own and operate. From there, those profits are used to fund any projects that are approved by the legislature that authorizes each member's lottery. Call it a professional "front-man" for lottery owner's and operators if you will.
There are, currently, 33 states that have membership including the US Virgin Islands. The games that are managed currently are the Powerball, Hot Lotto, Wildcard 2, 2 by 2 and Ca$hola which is a progressive jackpot hailing from Vermont.
From a player's perspective, MUSL does not really have an effect on the day to day life of lottery players. However if you wanted to know a bit more history about who manages these state lotteries, you just hit the jackpot.
